March 17th we flew to Darwin with the assistants, Elder Matekohi and Elder
Flinders. This was Elder Flinders first trip to the Northern Territory so we had
to get the photo of him jumping with the croc!
After being greeted at the airport by Elder and Sister Farrer, we stopped for a
quick bite of lunch. Notice the croc hanging from the ceiling in the back!
Its always a fun trip when we are able to travel with these 2 great missionaries
and the assistants to the President of this great mission. They work so
incredibly hard, are 100% obedient and lead with love and diligence. We are
blessed to have their leadership, as they do all that they do because of the
great love they have for Jesus Christ. Love these Elders.
Friday we enjoyed a great day of training with this fired up Darwin Zone!
Training included celebrating birthdays, Standing up for fruits and vegetables,
Elder and Sister Pearsons Mission Tour training as well as Leadership. The only
thing missing was Elder and Sister Farrer, and this is why........
While preparing vegetables to feed the missionaries after training, Sister
Farrer sliced her finger with a butcher knife.
After waiting in the emergency room and an x-ray, she got a few stitches and
joined us for the rest of the Zone Conference. A few miracles were involved
with this experience. Heavenly Father watches over His missionaries.
Sister Farrer, with the help of Elder Farrer, still managed to fix a fabulous dinner
for all of us that evening. Hawaiian haystacks are a huge hit with this bunch
of missionaries. Thank you Elder and Sister Farrer. We pray for a speedy
recovery. Love you.
