Tuesday 13th August 2013 - Goodbyes and Hellos

Sadly my 4th transfer on the mission field had come to an end, was priviliged to have sung in a missionary choir consisting of many Elders and Sisters that had amazing voices at the Heidelberg Stake Missionary Fireside, one that was aimed at inspiring the future generations of the church about serving missions and the blessings that would come from it. Our beloved mission president's wife Sister Maxwell led our choir with precision and exactness, extracting the full potential of all of our different voices and blending them all into one. We had Lagi Setu (previous Melbourne Storms NRL player) as a guest speaker, I could see straightaway all the boys in the congregation start to change their views about their rugby league careers and lean towards their missions, I believe that we achieved our goal! Straight after the fireside it was good to catch up with one of my fellow Elders from the Cragieburn Zone Elder Tuhoro! He is still soldiering on there haha the man! Was such a spiritually uplifting and inspiring night.
 Unfortunately the 3 amigos have been dispanded haha Elder Lubrido (left) has been transferred to the bush in the Shepparton Branch, Elder Pipers (middle) has been transferred to the Caulfield Ward which is still in the same district! and Elder Nyanhamo (right) is staying with me in Footscray, we will miss all the memories, laughs and crashing our bikes haha, defintely have made another two brothers for life! Go hard in your new areas boys.
(from left to right) Elder Williams, Elder Dollery, Elder Gines and Elder Woodruff. Elder Dollery and Elder Gines are the new 'greenies' in our district. Funny story though when Elder Dollery walked in I immediately thought to myself "I seen this guy before" so we started chatting away and somehow our conversation led to the  January 2010 Canberra E.F.Y and it turns out we were both in the same troop! haha small world I tell yah. Good to be serving alongside him in the mighty Australia Melbourne Mission! Such an exciting time to be serving! Caulfield District represent!
