Our friendly Kookaburra having a little taste treat right here in Sunbury.
Bob, Lesley and my Dad all working hard at the PROV (Public Record Office of Victoria). Bob is indexing, Lesley is digitising and Dad is preparing a box of Probates ready to be digitised.
Hopkins Falls in Warnambool, Victoria.
Cocky comes to visit our bird feeder now and then, right on our back deck. He chatters away while he eats. Quite the entertainer!
A scene from our trip to Warnambool and the Otway Ranges. This was taken in the Otways, a beautiful rain forest along the southern coast.

Our experiences here in the wonder Down Under - the land of Australia - are incredible and we want to share them with you. So, from the moment of arrival at the MTC right up to the moment, here are our thoughts, pictures and times. We are very grateful to this opportunity to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and to help in the most important work of preserving records for the State of Victoria. Our digitising efforts move forward, the volunteers we work with are terrific and hard-working and very diligent. The staff at the PROV couldn't be nicer and are always ready to assist us in any way. We have a new missionary couple joining us and we will start their training tomorrow (Monday).

Each day is a new wonder and brings its own set of adventures, challenges and joy. We hope you will enjoy reading our updates and browsing through the pictures we post here. For those who are just joining us, welcome! For those who have been with us from the beginning, thanks for your support and prayers and now for your patience as you begin at the beginning.

Thanks we enjoy seeing all you do. We too loved Melbourne and the work at the PROV. We miss you all and are glad everyone is in good hands. The pictures were great and so was the narrative, it brought back fond memories. You're great missionaries and friends too. Love, Flynns
