I don’t want to get off this ride!

It is difficult with Soeur Holt being so far away to hear of any health issues that she has. But events of this week help us know that there are many people who love and care for her. Tuesday was interesting to say the least- to start off with we did studies as usual and…

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…

The last transfer begins!

This last week was slightly extended as it was Easter and so emailing was delayed until Tuesday. Tuesday was a difficult day as I am slightly overwhelmed at the moment- Soeur Tepapatahi is leaving TODAY!!!  I’m sure we’ll have more details next week.

Zone conferences meant a movement of post that had arrived in the meantime in Guyane, I received my Christmas Eve package [the package was to be opened on Christmas Eve],…

Bonne Annee!!

As we celebrated New Year’s Day this week the event that we are most excited for in 2018 is when Soeur Holt returns home. Although we know she is where she needs to be, it will be lovely to be with her again. While we’re focussed on this the only mention of anything to do…

The calm after the storm

After a very hectic and turbulent week P- day was the calm after the storm pretty much- studies, emails, the weekly shop, icecream before heading to the church to make snowflakes for Christmas decorations and eat banane pesee as a zone. We had a Family Home Evening at Vilbrun’s home- John Kelly taught the lesson…
