Happy Birthday Elder Choemsaen! Shown in left with Elder Jordan his district leader. Right is our district meeting with Elder Jordan(DL) and Elders Barfuss and Bryner(ZL’s) . We had some amazing meeting with the missionaries during these meetings.
This festival was attended by many of the different peoples represented in Mildura. Upper left is Elder Siaosi. Right upper is Elders Bryner and Fala with a member from Fiji that was grateful for the assistance. Lower left Sister Manukau, Rosie(a member), Sister Auatabu and Sister Smith . Lower right Sister Smith is with some girls representing Turkey. The food was diversified and very delicious. Great time was had by all.
We had a fun evening with the YSA group in Mildura, which was augmented by Stake YSA leaders from Adelaide, they came for Ward Conference and we had a night out on the town or village or berg! Sister Smith and I were the targets for everyone to aim at. We were really good at that. We made all who played feel good about their efforts.
Elder Choemsaen. from Thailand and Elder Stubbs from Australia are companions!!

L-R Elder Fangaiuiha, Sister Sam Patzel, Sister Smith, Elder Shortland, Elder Maliu Elder Shortland transferred to Elizabeth in Modbury Zone and Elder Maliu transferred to Morialta in Firle Zone. We love them and will miss their great teaching abilities and hard work ethic.
We have the most wonderful neighbors behind us. They made us some Pavlova, a meringue type creation with whipped cream and fruit all over it. I hadn’t heard of them till coming to Australia. They definitely need to be eaten sparingly. The mother whose head you see is Romana and her son Connor. They treat us well.
