Farewell Sister Farthing

Cousin Kim left for her mission on Monday.  We went up to the airport to farewell her as she headed off to the Missionary Training Centre in Provo, Utah.  She will be there for the next three weeks and then will start her mission in Arizona.

We are so proud of Kim and her decision to serve the Lord as a missionary for the next 18 months.  We know she will be a great missionary and will touch the lives of many.

Temple Baptisms

Particuarly ugly picture of me but the camera went flat so its the only one we got - outside the door to the Temple
On Tuesday Elle was able to go to the Temple to do Temple Baptisms.  She's been waiting since she turned 12 in May!  It was a lovely experience especially since Jonathan was the baptiser.

The next time she does Temple Baptisms will be at the Salt Lake Temple.  19 days to go!

Stake Glee Fest

Elle and Ryan both participated in our Stake Glee Fest on the weekend.  They spent lots of time practicing with their groups to learn their song and dance moves.

Muffy, Terina, Tiana, Shavaria, Elle, Maddy & Ilai - waiting to go on stage
 Elle sang "Say a Little Prayer" with 8 of the Young Women.  They looked lovely and sounded great!  Ryan sang with 6 primary boys "Blame it on the Boogie" - They looked great in their 70's costumes (sewn by yours truly - a stressful day on Saturday sewing 6 pairs of flares) and were pretty smooth up on the stage!

Ryan looking pretty happy in his afro
It was a great show all round but in my opinion I think our ward had two of the best acts of the night.
