Friday, 21 Oct 2016

This morning Elder Haley worked with a young YSA man on his English home work. Then he reviewed the writing of one of the full time Elders who is working on passing the IELTS test. Sister Haley reviewed papers and prepared for some meetings with young YSA girls this afternoon.

We had lunch with old friends from our Castle Hill days - Keith Thompson & one of his kids - Anthony.  We ate at David's Kitchen which specializes in Malaysian and Thai food.  The food was good and the company even better.

on the way back to the office we passed one of the lower local courts and Margaret got this picture of a barrister in his wig.  We saw a lady barrister a bit later, but the camera was not ready so we did not get a picture of her wig

A highlight earlier in the week for Elder Haley was the chance to interview two of the young people (who were baptised 2 weeks ago ) for their limited temple recommends so they can go to the temple with us this coming Saturday and perform baptisms.  These 2 young people were really a joy to interview and for me to learn about their testimonies of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints.

This afternoon we are working with more of the young folks on their English and papers.

The office next to us has been vacated by the Lems who have moved down one office.  The office next to us is now being turned into a "Welcome Centre" and will have a multitude of paintings/pictures from the Church.  Below are a few of the pictures that are being set up in the Welcome Centre -

Christ talking with his disciples

The Saviour with some Nephite children, Helaman with the stripling warriors, and Moroni hiding the plates that will be translated by Joseph Smith and become the Book of Mormon

Mormon pioneers burying their dead on the way to Zion

The Saviour appearing to Mary Magdalene at the tomb after His resurrection
John 20:15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
 16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
 17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.
I bear testimony that He, Jesus Christ, did rise from the tomb and He lives.  He is our Redeemer, our Saviour and our Advocate with Heavenly Father

Tonight we have the night off and do not need to attend Game Night.  Not sure what we will do, but we will go see some part of Sydney unless we get rained out.
