One last time to the temple in Australia

             Many mixed emotions tonight.  Its getting harder and harder to say goodbye
to these incredible missionaries.  Standing up to be counted for 
the Lord. Oh how we love you.

      The Adelaide Temple will be closed for the next 2 weeks for cleaning so we went
to the Temple a  little early with this great group of missionaries who will be leaving
us way too soon. What a blessing to be in the House of the Lord together with 
people we love soooooo much.Elder Foiakau, Elder Matekohi, Elder Jarrett,
Elder Hartley, Sister Omugtong, Sister Makaya and Elder and Sister Larkin.

Miracles happen at stake conference! An old investigators who still comes to church but we do not teach because he is too busy came to conference yesterday. He brought his wife and young daughter (they do not normally come). We actually stopped by Wednesday night and they had just had an argument. At conference they sat apart with the daughter in the middle and there still seemed to be some tension. By the end of the conference they were sitting together sharing the daughter on each others laps! Their countenance had completely changed! It was great to see. I was so happy to see them there and to have such a good experience. We will go back again this week and try to teach and help them start progressing again.
It’s been a great week. Thanks for the emails!

Love you all Elder Hartley
