Three Elders from Gisborne required a trailer in the middle of a major storm and roads closed to get them up to Auckland!
The normally 8 hour trip took 12 hours to make! Even the Lord's cars are tough!
Reunion of the Collett family! Elder Collett gives his father a hug but doesn't recognize his mother--while he was serving she lost 170 lbs. You go girl!
Elder Collett was not expecting his younger brother to come along with his parents!
The biggest surprise was that his younger brother was also expecting his mission call any day now. Our Elder Collett didn't even know he was planning to serve!
What a reunion!
The Collett family!
The Andros family is reunited! Actually, they picked him up in Tauranga and brought him up to the mission home!
The Petty family comes from Christchurch to pick up Elder Petty!
A stalwart Elder from a great family!
All of these missionaries represent almost 10% of our mission lost in a single transfer! This was a tough one! We love you!
