Service in Westport

 This was the last District Meeting for Elder Robinson before he returned home so Sister Turner made a cake for him.  She turned her back and the cake was gone! Missionaries are so hungry. The Nelson District had a service project after their District Meeting on February 21st. A sister in the Westport Branch who lives in Karamea, had asked for help to clear the road that leads up to her home. She lives alone high up on a mountain and is about 1 1/2 hours from Westport. The bushes were over  grown and branches were scraping her car. This road was about a mile long.
The missionaries brought machetes from a Tongan member in Greymouth and were prepared to use them. All the Elders and Elder and Sister Turner were so helpful and worked so hard! Go Missionaries!!
 The Elders were also able to repair her water pump so water could flow into the home (Elder Willson and Elder Turner) and fix her weed eater. (Thanks to elder Teaupa)
The VanDenBosch's back in Westport had a hot meal for everyone later in the day.
