Nelson Zone Conference.
Many missionaries had the opportunity to interview with and visit with Elder Watson.
At the Nelson District Conference everyone sang to Elder and Sister Watson as they celebrated their 46th Wedding Aniversary.
One kind sister even made an anniversary cake filled with ice cream to celebrate the occasion.
Beautiful sites in New Zealand.

We all appreciated the opportunity to receive instruction from Elder and Sister Watson before they continued onto another assignment. Previous to their assignment to the Pacific Area Presidency they served three years in the Area Presidency in Africa. Elder Watson took the following pictures during our tour.


  1. Fun pictures, thanks for sharing.

  2. Wow, just stumbled across this blog and LOVE it. I am a sister that just returned from the NZWM just a transfer before you came! You both seem lovely, and I am so happy to see pictures of my mission family here! Thank you for sharing these, and reminding me of the beautiful things I left behind there, the land and the people :) I miss it very much, but it looks like you are taking good care of it!
