I made a commitment to myself that I would faithfully attend to Bianca's missionary journey and sadly, my faithfully has become a little unfaithful, so I am making amends.

We were very excited on 28/01/2015 to be able to get to the airport at 04h10 to wait for our daughter to arrive from the MTC ... of course, the amount of people checking in were just overwhelming but seeing our daughter for the first time in two weeks was just as overwhelming.

We have some photos posted below more yet on facebook, so please feel free to check both. One of my biggest concerns is that Bianca would be left to work out her own way everywhere and whilst she would cope, me ... not so sure. However, as usual, God is good and Bianca flew out to the Australia, Perth mission with two other missionaries who were called to serve there as well.

Please see an expert from one of her emails from the MTC. "I can't wait to get to Perth. The MTC has been so amazing. I've learnt so much. We went to the temple on Thursday and it was great. The Tongan sisters helped me during the session which made it even lovelier. On the way down to Hamilton, both on the bus ride up and down, the Tongan missionaries sung hymns. It was so beautiful and it really set tone.Wehad our last day in classes  yesterday. I can't believe how quickly time has gone by".
