Day at the Adelaide Temple with Sister Parker (center), Sister Tennis, Sister Larkin

Elder Rigby and Elder Briscoe were the only missionaries going home this transfer. Elder Rigby on Sister Parker's right.  Elder Briscoe on President Parker's left.  Actually Elder Briscoe was reassigned to serve in the Arizona mission because his visa had expired.  The other side of Elder Briscoe is Elder Skadins. The other side of Elder Rigby is Elder Matekohi (AP).  This is the first time we were able to get to the Temple.  We so enjoyed being in the House of Lord.  

Elder Rigby leaving.  We only met him a couple of days before and our heart was loving and missing him.  He served "out bush" meaning the he and a companion lived out in the middle of the aborigines by Alice Springs.  They can only stay outbush during the somewhat cooler months, because they literally live in tin-type house that heats up like an oven. He is returning home to New Zealand.
