May 2015 – Highlights

May started out uneventful, but ended on a high.

My good friend, Sela Jane Aholelei, moved to South Korea to teach English. She’s a champ. Read her adventures here:Β https://selabrationjane.wordpress.com/


We celebrated Mother’s Day in Hamilton with my family this year. The last couple of years we’ve stayed in Auckland with Bryton’s mum so it was nice to be with my family. Bryton made waffles and my family loved them! We also got to Skype Elder Pilling on his mission and he is looking great and sounding terrible. Haha his english is getting worse but his Spanish is improving!

HAD TO THROW THIS CUTE FACE IN THERE

MUM’S MOTHER’S DAY BREAKFAST. SHE LOVED IT.


At the beginning of the month our good friend, Simone, received her endowments. Keith, Bryton, and I made it down from our group. It was the early 8.30am session on Saturday which meant we were supposed to leave by 6am. Well, we slept through the alarm and woke up at 6.45am. Consequently, we missed the session by about 15 minutes but we got donuts and took our time going up to the temple where we sat inside and it turned out to be a really lovely morning spent together.




The Mia Maids organized the combined Young Mens and Young Women’s activity this month. We ran a mini MTC activity where each of the youth got a mission call and a companion and went around to different missionary based workshops. We got a lot of great feedback.

SISTER VANESSA KIWA PRESENTED AN AMAZING WORKSHOP ABOUT HER MISSION IN ADELAIDE.


Finally, our trip to Canada. I could go on and on about it and it feels like I already have. Haha. The week before Grandma passed away we Skyped her. For some reason I took a photo of us skyping them and I don’t usually do that. I am so glad that I did because it would be the last time we would talk to her. The quality is really bad because there was a terrible glare, but it’s better than nothing!



The trip was amazing, as I’ve said several times before. I am definitely looking forward to going back and seeing everyone again. Meeting so many family members, especially Grandpa, was the highlight for sure!
