Sunday, 2 October 2016

My goodness how the time flies when you are having fun.  We have been in the Hyde Park YSA ward for about 6 weeks now.
Today was fast Sunday here - General Conference in the USA.  We will see the General Conference sessions next weekend.
The Bishop & 1st counselor were out of town this weekend, due to it being a 3 day weekend here in Australia - Labor Day.  So I was left to conduct sacrament meeting, along with all the other business of the ward.  With YSA that is quite a challenge with no time to stop and think.  Oh yes, it was time change time (spring ahead 1 hours), so many of the YSA arrived late.

Today was also a sad day, as we had transfers announced last night.  We are "losing' some of our Elders & Sisters, plus some will be heading home during the coming week.   Our district held a district council after the normal meetings.  In the council each leaving missionary takes a seat in front of the district and the others can ask them any question they want.  After the questions, the missionary bears their testimony.

 Haleys with Sister Missionaries from China
 Sister Haley with Sister Missionary who is leaving Tuesday for home (China)
 Elders & Sisters from Taiwan and China

We are sorry to see some of the Elders & Sisters go, but hopefully some will come back for a 2nd (or 3rd) time to our ward.
