Maltese Trip

Ten years ago Calvin took an 8 year old Gareth on tour with Tenby Male Choir, they went to Tuscany to celebrate their 30th Anniversary.



This year is their 40th anniversary and they are in Malta.  Due to all the changes happening here with Gareth leaving for his mission and Ross starting work I didn't feel I could go but Calvin loves to travel and is having a great time in the Autumn sunshine.

He found the bus to church on Sunday and spent the afternoon with old friends who have settled out there.  This is the church building that the members in Malta meet in each Sunday.

Busy, Busy, Busy


Elder Williams has spent the week meeting. teaching and serving the people in his area.  The members of his ward have been so supportive of the missionary efforts.  As mum I am very grateful for that.  He is loving the people he meets and each one has their own story and their own connection with the gospel.

Area 1 -Bikes!

The flights went well and Gareth got great views of Pembrokeshire and then Salt Lake City.  Not many on the long flight so he could stretch out!  But the Chicago - Sacramento flight was packed.  I remember flying from Texas to Phoenix and some of the other passengers had their dogs with them!  Things you don't see here!


So here is Elder Williams with his new Companions, a tri  for only a few days to get Gareth and Elder Ford used to their new area.  Leaders and members are treating them well and keeping them fed!
They have bikes but it seems the area is quite small and so its not too taxing, they also meet lots of members as they travel around, how lovely!



We'll be sure not to park here!!


Out in the boonies of the area. lots of farms.

Arrival


So here he is, safely landed in Sacramento and met by his Mission President and his wife, President and Sister Marston.

Lets hope that isn't the lost luggage heap behind them, and if it is lets hope Gareth's bags aren't in the middle of it!!!

Departure

No photos yet!! 
 Elder Williams left the UK on 13th October and arrived safely 
at his destination, a little jet lagged and HOT!  
He will soon get used to it.

He has so enjoyed the experiences from the England London Mission and this has prepared him well to take the Gospel message to those willing and ready to hear it in California.

Looking forward now to hearing his adventures from this next stage of his Mission for 
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

A Norfolk/Suffolk family wedding

Calvin, Martha and I were able to travel to Norfolk for my cousin's wedding.




We had a really lovely weekend.  Thanks Tyrone and Helen for allowing us to be there for you and to witness your love for each other as you took the step to be married.

Zone meeting and exchanges


Elder Williams has had a great week. Meeting up with  his new friends for the last time before he leaves for the USA.  Spending time teaching with Elder Cook and Elder Tomas.  Exploring the galleries of London.  Enjoying hearing the word of the Lord through his servants at General Conference.


He even had one last hello and goodbye with Elder Allen
