How many cakes can two Sister missionaries make?

Such a busy week for Soeurs Holt and Hansen but it began with a chilled p-day. So last pday was my first without having to rely on other people/sisters for taking me here there and everywhere so we took it really slow and relaxed!! We started out the day by making eggs and hash browns…

The best laid plans…

The best laid plans and all of that! Sometimes the missionaries have everything in place and a spanner is thrown into the works. This past week it was their pday where they tried to go to a historical site that was supposed to be really cool but was actually closed so I used the mentality…

Bonjour tout le monde!

This week Soeur Holt got slightly trunky I have to say! Trunky is a colloquial term for a little bit home sick, or missing home. The reason? One of our very close family friends (so close that our children grew up thinking the Teal children were their cousins) got married. It’s the first major event…

We met Tom Jones’ mum!

The time goes so fast… every week is crammed for Soeur Holt and those she serves with. We were shocked this week because p-day wasn’t spent playing ultimate Frisbee but the Sisters all went to the zoo; so cool all of the animals are from this area of the world and because of that the cages…

In English I think I would just talk and talk and talk and regurgitate all of my gospel knowledge onto the people I…

Push a boulder!!

This is because because Soeur T and…

Staying in Abymes

The big news of this week is transfer news!! I am staying in Abymes with Soeur Tepapatahi and I am so happy I really thought that I was leaving and I really didn’t want to; we both screamed down the phone at the APs (Assistants to the President) when we got the news. The next transfers…

Distance makes the heart grow fonder!

On Monday evening in Manchester, our home town, we experienced an horrendous terrorist attack. This took place at the Manchester Arena which is a venue we have all visited many times for sporting and music events. For Eleanor, most recently, she attended a Summer Live event with various artists performing. Although Manchester has been the subject of…
