In May we were able to meet the Sisters of the Australia Sydney South Mission and ride the Manly Ferry into Sydney.
On the steps outside Pancakes on the Rocks
This is Emma Scruggs (and Sister Scruggs). Emma does not appear in many pictures because she has become the mission photographer. Although she does not have a formal calling as a missionary she has served faithfully for 3 years. Emma is loved by all the missionaries and she is one of the Sisters. Emma has worried with us over sick missionaries, she has knocked on doors while doing sisters exchanges and she has been my companion on countless errands. Emma has washed more dished than she would like to admit. She never complains when we postphone plans or open our home to investigators, members and missionaries. I am thankful to have had Emma serve with us. She will be missed and remembered as the mission president's daughter who never missed a chance to switch badges on Elders jackets or help the missionaries remember how much they miss having a younger sister to tease and taunt. Being the youngest of 7 she can hold her own with the teasing.
Thank you Emma, you will be missed!
