How can we become ministering missionaries?

What we didn’t realise, and we’re not sure that Soeur Holt did either, is that even at this early stage of her last transfer there will be a series of ‘last’ things. A couple of events of the past week have highlighted just how short the time is. This was the last Zone Conference of…

Learning the voice of the Spirit…

An experience this week shows that even after 17 months Soeur Holt is able to recognise that there are things she can learn.
