Our First Sunday in the Mortdale Ward, I gave the opening prayer and we were both asked to share our testimonies. The members have been warm and welcoming. We have 3 sets of missionaries that attend our ward: the Assistants to the President, 2 elders and 2 sisters. We attended the Gospel Essentials class with them and were really impressed with the missionaries’ teaching and comments.
A really special Tongan sister and her husband have 13 beautiful children that are just remarkable. The youngest 2 came into the office and recited from memory Doctrine and Covenants Section 4. Their daughter leaves soon for a mission to Fiji.
