Larry met with the Priesthood leaders to talk about the role of High Priest Group Leaders in supporting Family History in wards and branches. I did a segment to the family history consultants on the way partner sites like Ancestry.com work together with Family Search. The whole morning came together great and we were glad to be a part of it.
Bush walks are nice and I'm always up for discovering another waterfall. But THIS is why we are here. We love teaching this stuff. It feels so good to be a part of something that matters, to know our efforts are contributing to things of eternal consequence. It truly is a privilege to be serving this mission.

Sister Wihongi did a brilliant job of illustrating how we all need to work together to have a strong family history program in our wards and branches
Another group had bowl, spoon, baking sheet, spatula, The next group had words like stir, mix, bake. The final group had pinch, teaspoon, 2 cups.
By ourselves, none of the groups could put together a batch of biscuits (the Kiwi word for cookies). But when she had us all get together to bring what each of us had to share, we were able to build a proper recipe.
Afterward we got to eat some of the real biscuits from that recipe.

A good time was had by all!
