Mission Call-Australia Sydney South

 Elder Howard Elies is excited to open his mission call to the Australia Sydney South Mission.  Elder Kim is seated next to him.  He will be leaving in June for the MTC in Provo, Utah.  Below in a picture of him with his family.  His mother on the far left was smiling and proud and crying all at the same time.
 One of his younger family members opens a coconut for the juice to be presented to the guests.  Young children learn quickly to use the machete and not lose a finger.


  1. Wow! I love the two photo's of those just called on missions! They look so happy. I was hesitant on getting the boys a pocket knife. Guess I should consider a machete next time.

  2. Great guy to serve with, Elder Elies was an amazing missionary and always tried his best. Thanks for all your hard work mate the Lord will bless you and your family!
