First Preparation Day!

The beautiful Sydney Temple is about 45 minutes away in Carlingford. We very much enjoyed a session there our first Saturday morning. The Church Area Office is adjacent to the temple, the building behind the blossoming tree.

Then we bought a Costco membership. Our goal? A mattress topper and good pillows! They have already been worth every penny. The rotisserie chicken has also been great as we arrive home tiredIMG_3078 from the office. This is not a picture from our visit to Istanbul, but is a mosque we saw while driving back from the temple! There is much diversity in Sydney. In our Sydney South Mission the elders and sisters speak Mandarin, Cantonese, Samoan, Tongan, Spanish, and, of course, English. One of the most frequent requests from our missionaries is for copies of the Book of Mormon in Arabic. Two of our missionaries are from mainland China!
