"Grand as it is, planet Earth is part of something even grander- that great plan of God. Simply summarized, the Earth was created that families might be." Elder Russell M. Nelson

I was able to attend Relief Society as the Primary kids were all out of town. We enjoyed the Women's Relief Society conference and chocolate Easter eggs.

After skyping with the kids we walked to the White Bull for lunch: roasted pork, pumpkin, green beans and very tasty french fries or what they call here chips.

For the Primary girl activity, we are going to have a meeting at the Benesch farm, talking about etiquette and manners and then another day have a Queens Tea luncheon so today we went to antique shops and Op shops in search of cheap jewelry and hats for the Primary girls.

Can't get enough of these gorgeous colors with the onset of Autumn.

Dinner with the elders, enjoying what I am sure is becoming a favorite with the elders, Elder Berger's steak dinner with Sister Berger's funeral potatoes.

It is President Sully's Birthday today so Sister Berger made a delicious loaf of bread for him.

It looks like this mama kangaroo has a joey taking a look around.

We skyped with the Ben Terry, our Seniinary and Institute coordinator for NSW  and other seminary teachers in our mission to receive training.

We bought raisins, twice as much money as the popular Sultana, and I made Oatmeal Raisin cookies with chocolate chips for dessert for our meal tonight.  We invited Sister Tan and Sister Betts to eat with us and listen to a conference talk from 2010 given by President Uchtdorf.  I think they enjoyed it as much as we did.

I put meatballs in the crockpock for our potluck in Inverell, taught CTRs, taught music in sharing time.  Elder Berger conducted Sacrament meeting and taught Gospel Doctrine.  After our meetings and a quick lunch with the elders, we all left to take Sacrament meeting to the Inverell members.  I was asked to repeat the talk I gave last week.  It was a tiring day but we really enjoy the wonderful spirit of those few members in Inverell.  The Ali family has been denied a resident visa after living here over four years and just learned their right to hold jobs has been revoked.  They don't know what to do.  They do not have money to return to Fiji, no place to live there or work there and are helpless until they have their appeal hearing with immigration.  They paid their tithing and asked for blessings.  They are humble, sweet people.
