A Wonderful Opportunity

Yesterday, I made the right decision to go to the Temple. I arrived there 5 minutes prior to a 4pm Baptistery Session. When the Temple Workers saw just me, they knew straight away that I was happy to attend a Baptistery Session.

My friend was attending a different session compare to me, but that's okay. I remembered being asked by one of the Temple Workers of the following questions,
"Would you do more files than your Family Files?"
"How many are you willing to do?"

I answered, "Yes, I would do more files than my Family Files and I am happy to do as many as you would like me to do. "
At Perth Latter-Day Saint Temple
The Temple Workers who witnessed my answer, was very pleased to hear. Two Temple Workers was having a discussion of how many files would I do. When they finalise of how many files that I would do, they asked me, "Sister Green, would you be happy to do 25 files to 35 files? I answered "Yes, that's fine."
After the session, I had a wonderful opportunity. I was able to serve and I was greeting Church members to the Temple before going inside. It was an amazing experience.

Although there were a few Church members didn't respond to me but that's okay. I still had a great time to serve. I was able to do it for 1 hour or more than 1 hour. Whenever there was no one coming, I was taking photos. I can't wait for this opportunity to come again.

After greeting Church members, I was able to go to Institute and it was a great Institute Class. I learnt so much. 2 to 4 full pages was filled with notes.

Second Experience at Perth LDS Temple

Yesterday was my second experience to go to Perth Latter-Day Saint Temple. It was a great experience and I enjoyed every second while I was at the Temple. I was able to do some of my Family Files, thanks to Dad for emailing me the Family Files.
Before the Baptistery Session, I was able to walk around outside the Temple and it is so beautiful. I was able to get some photos taken, a Temple Worker was able to print my Family Files and I done a few other things to kill time.
During the Baptistery Session, there was a huge number of members attending. I know it was a great sacrifice for others to give up their normal evening to attend the Temple. There was more youth than YSA attended the session. It was my first time seeing a Baptistery Session almost full.
After the session, I waited and waited for one of my friends to finish his session. Eventually he came and I was grateful to be at the Temple to support him. Not only to support him, but I was able to be at the Temple for him and to take photos.

I spent a total of 5 hours and 20 minutes or so, at the Perth Latter-Day Saint last night. I loved it. I look forward to my next visit to the Perth Latter-Day Saint Temple.
I was tired from last night, that I slept in until around 11am this morning. It is because I arrived back where I was staying around 11:20pm or something last night. All photos was taken at Perth Latter-Day Saint Temple yesterday afternoon and last night.

The First Experience at Rockingham Institute

I don't have much to say. This post is based on my first experience at Rockingham Institute. Last night, I attended Rockingham Institute and it was an interesting experience for me. For Rockingham Institute, the class are focusing on Doctrine and Covenants for this semester. I realised that I have so much input for the Class.

You may ask these two following questions 
"What has helped you for knowing what to say? and 
"How does those things applies to your life?"

My answer is;
"I was taking Advanced Doctrine and Covenants Institute Class at the chapel next door to Brisbane LDS Temple for 3 weeks before attending Doctrine and Covenants Institute Class in Ipswich. I have done some studies from Preach My Gospel a lot, general studies of the scriptures, and able to remember my past experiences from my Mini Mission, my Temple attendance, etc. 
It applies so much when I have notes to look over and it always helps with staying tuned with the Holy Ghost." I learnt so much in Class. The Class focused on Doctrine and Covenants, Section 35 to Doctrine and Covenants, Section 39. After class, I have been asked if I was a Returned Missionary. I said "No. I am not." 

One of the highlights that I have learnt last night was, "We can't do things alone, sometimes it can take to have someone next to you as a witness, like having the Holy Ghost with us can be a witness."

I still am enjoying my time in Perth. It has been wonderful, fun and great times so far.

Beach Day!!

Today was a great and fun day. I was able to go to the Seascapes Beach with Serene and her daughter Willow. It was a beautiful weather for going to the Beach today but the water was so cold.
Serene, Willow and Me.
I know it isn't much to update, but soon I will be off to another road trip. Serene, Willow and I will be heading to closer to Rockingham, Western Australia from Mandurah, Western Australia. It might take up to 30 minutes or so to get to Rockingham.
Me and Willow.
About 2 weeks ago, I found out that I have passed Institute back at home. Last week, I wasn't able to go to Institute because of my flight to Perth. This week, I am looking forward to go to Institute. I will be going to Institute in a different state.
I am sure that it will be an interesting experience for me and I am sure that I will be able to make new friends. Throughout this post, was showing a few photos that was taken at the Beach today.

Surprise Skype Call From Home

Today has been good day. I know that I already have blogged earlier. I would like to share with you the highlights that has happened today.

Earlier this afternoon, I received a skype call from my youngest sister Rebekah. and she skyped me via her tablet. I wasn't expecting for her to skype call me when she did because I was typing up a long letter for the ward member's wife (the wife to the husband who has passed away yesterday morning) to comfort her.
I don't know what Rebekah was
showing me.
However it was good talking to my youngest sister Rebekah. I was able to recognise a few different voices in the background during the Skye Call. I was able to hear my Mum, my other sister Emma and my Grandma in the background. It was good hearing them all.
A screenshot during the Skype Call

I remembered hearing my Grandma mentioning "I miss you." I said back "I miss you too." I hoped that my Grandma heard me. I would like to say that I still enjoying my time in Perth. Sometime after the Skype Call, I purchased an envelop to send a letter today and then I went shopping to get what I needed. I did other things today too.

Tomorrow will be my third day in Rockingham Stake. I will be leaving Mandurah, Western Australia area. I will be heading to closer to Rockingham, Western Australia to stay with someone else. I am so excited.

I have been missing the memories with YSA from Southern River Stake already. I am looking forward to the YSA activities in Rockingham Stake.

FHE Lesson and Heartbroken News

Yesterday was great even though it doesn't seem that way by not doing much. I would like to say thanks so much again to my friend Laura Mackwell and her family to allow to stay over at their house. I had a wonderful time. 

When I woke up yesterday, I felt I needed to fast for 2 meals. I was struggling to figure what to do for a Family Home Evening Lesson. I remembered that when I finalise a topic for the Family Home Evening Lesson. I felt to continue fasting.

I packed my suitcase and I packed my bag. I was ready to leave Fremantle, Western Australia to go to Mandurah, Western Australia. I had so much fun and filled with memories for the last 5 days. On the way to Mandurah, my sister Emma called me.

I didn't expect her to call me. She mentioned that she called so she can talk to me. It was great for her to do that. I had a great conversation with her.

When I arrived in Mandurah, Western Australia, I was happy to be here. I was going to start blogging for yesterday but I didn't. I was preparing for Family Home Evening. The lesson was on a Friend Article "Keep It Up Jeanna!" If you would like to read the article, here's the link below.
I ended my fast by having a drink of water and having dinner. About 2 to 3 hours after dinner, I was on Facebook to read my news feed. I found out one of my home ward members has passed away. I was feeling so heartbroken than ever. I still felt heartbroken when I woke up this morning.

I have been feeling grateful that I have continued fasting when I did, I eventually started feeling happy, peace, comfort and love again. I am grateful for the knowledge of The Plan of Salvation and having the knowledge what happens after life.

Unfortunately, I will be finding things hard by not able to use my laptop because it no longer works well. The loads up with everything great but the screen is black. It's not showing colour. I will have to give it a go to do blogging on my phone or until I get myself a new laptop or until I could get my laptop fixed.

Church, Mission Prep and FHE

Church was great and after Church was great too. After Church, I was able to get photos with the Sister Missionaries who are serving in Jandakot Ward and also get photos with the Sister Missionaries who are serving in Thornlie Ward.
Left: Me with the Sister Missionaries in Jandakot Ward,
Right: Me with the Sister Missionaries in Thornlie Ward.
I ran to Sister Ama when she arrived at Church with her companion and with the bikes that they rode. Sister Ama was surprised that I saw her. It was great seeing her again. I met her Mission President and his wife on Friday afternoon.

I also was able to met one of her previous companions on Friday afternoon too and met her district leader yesterday.

Mission Prep Class was great. I loved it. After Mission Prep, I went to Family Home Evening and dinner with the YSA from Southern River Stake and I saw a few other YSAs from other stakes too.
The left photo and the middle photo was taken by another YSA,
and I took the right photo. 
The Family Home Evening, and dinner was great. It was great seeing some YSA from End of Year YSA Convention. I already know that I will miss the YSA in Southern River Stake that I have met last night and especially to the YSA from Jandakot Ward. I am excited for the next adventure ahead which is I will be leaving today to be apart of Rockingham Stake. Here I come Rockingham Stake today!!

Bounce and Games Night

Readers, I still having fun and great time here in Perth. Whenever I am not on Facebook, I am always having a great time. Yesterday afternoon, I went to Bounce to join with the YSA in Jandakot Ward. If you haven't heard Bounce before, here's the link below about it. It is I would like to come back again.
After that so in the early evening, we all went out to have dinner and desert which was at Sister Grader's house. Before dinner, during between dinner and dessert and after dessert, we all played games. We played spoons which is a American game. We played snap game using Harry Potter Uno Cards. We played a few other games. It is too hard to explain it. It was so much fun. Here's the link about how to play it. 
I enjoyed my time very much, All YSA except 1 YSA (because she lives there), left Sister Grader's house at 10:30pm. I made new friends with the YSA. There was a few YSA that I already met during End of Year YSA Convention last year. It was definitely organised so well.

House Sitting, Perth Temple and YSA Dance

Readers, I apologised that I haven't been able to blog since that last time that I blogged. I had no wifi connection for the last 2 days.

Thursday; I was almost ready to go out, I was home alone at Laura's place for about 4 hours. Laura came home to get take me out and go with her for house sitting. For the house that we house sat, had no wifi connection. She left me home alone for almost 3 hours while she went out. When she came back, we made dinner together and it was Pasta Bake: Creamy Tomato and Mozzarella.
I decided to go to Perth Latter-Day Saint Temple. 

Friday; It was a long rewarding day. I was home alone because Laura left to go to work early. I woke up after 9 to 10 hours sleep. I was going to go to 4pm Baptistery Session but I didn't arrived at the Temple until 5:39pm so I was early for 6pm Baptistery Session. I met 2 Sister Missionaries and made a few friends. I also met Perth Australia Mission President and his wife.
I had a wonderful time at the Perth Temple. I definitely felt a stronger feeling than I normally get from Brisbane Temple which was a great surprise to me. A temple worker asked how long that I have been to Perth so far, I said "2 days." He said "Already 2 days and you are here. You definitely made a priority to come here."It made me feel so great inside. 

During the session, I made a new friend and her family with a few of her relatives was happy to take me to the YSA Dance because it was on their way heading home. I was able to see about 6 friends or so from Convention. It was a shock to a few friends from Convention to see me again. I also made new friends too. I got a lift back to where I was staying after the dance. 
By the way, there will be all the photos will be uploaded on Facebook eventually. I am loving Perth and I know that I have made the right choice to come back. I have making more use of my day when I wake up about 7am or 8am here and I could achieved so much in a day. I know when I was in Queensland and I didn't wake up until 9am or 10am because I was so tired. When I am here, I don't feel tired, I feel normal to be awake early in the morning, 

A friendly reminder, I will update when I have WiFi Connection. I do text messages for updates as well but it wouldn't be much. It would just be brief and short.

Flight to Perth .. again

Everyone!! I made sure that there was a few photos got taken before my luggage got checked in which is throughout this post. However the last photo was taken on the plane.
Me and my sister Rebekah 
Me and my sister Rebekah
I had to say the last goodbyes to my sister Emma early because she was leaving home to go to Institute.

Overall the flight was good. I had Chicken Curry with Rice for dinner and I had ice cream for dessert.

I prayed to Heavenly Father for 5 times or so. I was so glad that I did prayed to him for guidance and protection.

Still had another 3 hours to go out of 5 hours and 30 minutes

                        I arrived in Perth safely on Wednesday 15th, April at 11:40pm in Perth Time Zone and it would have been Thursday 16th April at 1:40am in Brisbane Time Zone.

I didn't get any sleep on the plane unfortunately. I was able to watch Taken 3 Movie, listening to songs, taken a few photos of me, and writing notes of what I might say for this post during the flight from Brisbane to Perth. Overall my flight to Perth was good.

So it was around 1am, I arrived in Fermantle. I didn't go to sleep until around 1:40am. I had about 5 hours to 6 hours sleep. I am still tired but I am getting used to 2 hours behind .. again. There isn't much to say but hopefully in the next post, I will have a lot to say.
Stay Tuned.

Here I Come Perth

Here I come Perth, Western Australia!! I am excited to go to Perth ... again. When I go back to Perth, I will be able to make the most of it. I already made some plans that I would like to go and do. A few of places that I would like to go is Perth Latter Day-Saint Temple, Kings Park, etc. I will be able to go to the YSA Dance this Friday evening, attending Institute and YSA other activities. I look forward of making new friends.

Tonight is the night that I will be leaving. I will be leaving Brisbane again. I am telling you all right now that I am not ready for another set of goodbyes but I know that I have to be ready to say goodbye to my family. I WILL let them know that I love them very much and I will miss them very much while I am away when I will go to Brisbane Airport.
"Is it true that you will be leaving tonight?" is the question.

"I know my answer will be long and here it goes. Get tissues as it may make you cry!! Yes it is true that I will be leaving Brisbane tonight and I know it is hard to believe it. Time has gone so fast. I know I have to keep calm.

I have to believe it because later this evening, I will be in Perth. I will be in a different state that will be 2 hours behind of Brisbane Time Zone and Perth is the other side of Australia." is the answer.

I don't think that I will change that much while I am away. I know that I have inspired some friends by my wonderful examples for them to be able to follow. I know that inspiration to them can be when I was going to the Brisbane Latter-Day Temple often, spending some of my time to share the gospel with the Missionaries or not, attending Institute every week, my testimony about the gospel has been strengthen and many more.

So how was my last day spent?

I was home alone with my brother while one of my sisters went to University and rest of the family went out shopping. I didn't go because I wanted to do a few things before leaving. Everyone, please take care and stay safe while I am away. Look out for updates while I am away.

2 Days Until Departure

Readers and new readers, WELCOME!! I left Perth 4 months ago. I went to Perth for the End of Year YSA Convention 2014. I know there was range of opportunities for the YSA who was staying longer in Perth, to attend YSA activities to go and do after Convention. I did not get to go and do because I was heading back to Brisbane. I look forward when I go to Perth ... again.

To all of my friends in Brisbane, Logan, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, and Surrounding areas; "If you didn't get a proper goodbye/farewell from me, I am so sorry. I know that I will be missed while I am gone but always remember to keep your head up and keep smiling. I can't promise you that I will be back to Brisbane next week neither I can't promise you that I will be back to Brisbane in 2 weeks. I will see you when I get to see you again."
I have been keeping busy and I already know that I don't get much time to do everything in one day and one night.

Readers, I will be updating this blog while I am away. This blog will be exciting and interesting with updates. Updates can be anything such as new experiences, adventures, things that I might have learnt while being away and many more. I encourage you all to look out for updates in your spare time when I am away. I may not post as often as each day/each evening that I have been doing lately but I will try my best to.

I look forward to what 2 remaining days left has in store for me. I would like the last 2 Days to be nice and great to me. Another 2 days to go.

I Choose To Be Happy

Readers, I encourage you to think about what the Image says, "When was the last time I chose to be happy rather than demanding to be right? - Linda K. Burton."
We all have choices to make in this life. The choices that we choose, can make us happy or sad. Always remember this, "It is YOUR CHOICE of how you feel today or this evening. When you are happy, you are deserved to be happy. When you are sad, you deserved to be sad."

Don't hide your feelings away from others who cares about you. There will always be someone or your true friends will always care about you. I know who my true friends are and I am grateful for who they are. I am grateful to have true friends because they have made me happy for who I am, they have helped me whenever I need them for, they know that I always try my best in anything and they know that I always try my best to find time to talk to them.

True friends, you know who you are. So thank you for everything that you were able to do for me and talking to me when I needed someone to talk to. I know that I can think of some more thank you for's but I wouldn't be sharing it with you for this post. I think it would be a very long list if I did.

If you ever need to someone to talk to, I am always willing to listen. I am always willing to care about what you have to say. So don't be afraid to message me today about anything. I will try my best to reply in a response that you would like to hear. I know that can be hard when there are other distractions happening.

Did you choose to be happy today? I choose to be happy today.

At All Times and In All Things and In All Places

I know some readers aren't members of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints which I understand that they may not have a full understanding of who Heavenly Father is. Heavenly Father is God. If you don't know who God is; God is a creator of the Eater, he is perfected and glorified.

As growing up in the Church, I learnt that God is our loving Heavenly Father. I remembered each Sunday in Young Women's, the Young Women's stand up and say the Young Women's Theme outloud. I remembered loving a section of The Young Women's Theme that stood out to me the most which was "We stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places."
Readers, I would like you all to remember that Heavenly Father does loves you. He knows your weaknesses, he knows your trails, he knows your tribulations, he knows your struggles, he knows your strengths and HE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE!

You can talk to Heavenly Father by praying to him at any time of the day and at any time of the evening. He is always listening. He may not answer your prayers straight away, but don't feel discouraged if he doesn't answer your prayers. He will answer in his own time and when we are ready to willing to listen to him.

If you have spare around 10 to 15 minutes now, I encourage you to watch the Video above that talks about "At All Times, and All Things and In All Places," and mentioned about her story. I loved listening and watching the video. It helps to understand that Heavenly Father is there.

Coming, Keeping and Working Together

Readers, I encourage you to answer the following questions honestly and you can ask someone else who is around you to answer the same questions about what it means to them.

When you hear "Coming together," what does it mean to you?
When you hear "Keeping together," what does it means to you?
When you hear "Working together," what does it means to you?

I love the Image below, it explains what is coming together is, keeping together is, and working together is very well detailed.
Has your thoughts changed of the meaning to "Coming together," to a better perspective?

Has your thoughts changed of the meaning to "Keeping together," to a better perspective?

Has your thoughts changed of the meaning to "Working together," to a better perspective?

"Coming Together" can be like saying "You are getting to know your boyfriend or girlfriend better, you and your boyfriend or your girlfriend are becoming a couple."

"Keeping Together" can be like saying "You and your boyfriend or your girlfriend  are keeping each other, keeping each other's company. Keep holding onto memories. You and your boyfriend or your boyfriend are staying in contact constantly."

"Working Together" can be like saying "You and your boyfriend or your girlfriend are engaged, you and your boyfriend or your girlfriend, can always try to work out plans for the wedding and the future."

7 Days until Departure

One week until I fly out. Time is going fast. I feel like saying "before I know it, I will be at the airport and saying goodbyes. I am sure that it will make me remember when I went to the airport to say byes to go to Perth for End of Year YSA Convention 2014."

I have been looking forward to go back to Perth for a few months. The answer to the question "Are you ready to say another set of goodbyes?" is still unknown. I know that I will be gone for a longer time when I go back. I wonder how many things could change while I am away again.

I still know that Heavenly Father will keep my family safe and protected while I am away. I will miss them. I will miss seeing each family member's smiling and being happy.
What would the remaining 7 days has in store for me? What will be the things that I can learn within 7 days?

I don't understand why my post "15 Days until Departure" sounds like if I was going to leave for a mission. I will be going back to Perth for holidays/vacation. I know that some of my friends from Perth, wouldn't come and visit Brisbane. I am still looking forward to go back to Perth. Another 7 days to go.

This Week's Transfers

Around 11pm last night, I received a text message from Elder 'Otuafi. I was wide awake by emailing to some of my friends who are serving their missions which was no surprise. The text message mentioned that both of the Ward Missionaries will be getting transferred this week. It may have been no surprise to anyone because I really do get involved with Missionary Work a lot.
Left to Right: Elder 'Otuafi, Me and Elder Hanson
I had my phone alarm on to wake me up but I didn't want to get up straight away. I was worrying and thought that they already came to my house and left. When I eventually woke up, it was 6:25am. So I texted the Ward Missionaries. After 10 minutes that I received a reply via text message, I heard a noise at the front door and I opened the door.

It was the Ward Missionaries. They stayed to talk for 20 to 30 minutes. I was grateful that I got photos with them on Sunday. The photo of the Elders is shown on my previous post "He'll Carry You " I love the Image below on Transfer Day!
I don't know how both Elder 'Otuafi's reaction and Elder Hanson's reaction when they both found out that they both are getting transferred today. I know my reaction was totally unexpected and unreal.

He'll Carry You

I love a song called "He'll Carry You by Hilary Weeks." It may not relate to this Easter Weekend. We all need to remember that Jesus Christ knows how it feels like when we are feeling down, he knows how it feels like when we are alone, he knows how it feels like when we go through heartaches, he knows how it feels like when we go through hard times, he knows how it feels like when we go through trails and he knows how it feels like when we go through struggles.

Below is a video of the song, and I encourage you to listen to it. If you don't have time to listen to it now, I encourage you to try to find a time and listen to the song.
What did you think about the song when you were listening to the song? Did you felt the peace and the comfort while listening?
"I would like to share my testimony with you all. I know Jesus Christ knows how it feels like to be me whenever I go through trails, struggles, tribulations, heartaches and it's not a nice feeling. I know whenever I ask forgiveness, peace and comfort through prayer; I will be able to feel the instant knowing that I have been forgiven, given peace, given comfort and that's a nice feeling to have. Don't ever forget that Jesus Christ does loves you, he knows you are imperfect and he knows what you are going through.

I know when you pray, you can feel those same or similar feelings. I know he knows you personally, he knows your weaknesses and he knows your strengths, I know when you allow him to be apart of your daily lives, he will be able to be with you every step of the way. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen."

You can seek out for the Missionaries today. They will be able to help you with anything as long as it's following the mission rules. They might be able to answer any questions that you may have about this life. Take a moment to get to know them. Any questions to search for the answers can be found in the two following links; and
Me with Elder 'Otuafi (left) and Elder Hanson (right)
The photo above is the Elders who are serving in my area and they are great Missionaries when you get to know them.

Someone Has Been Missing My Company

I am happy for anyone to read this post. I would like to dedicate this post to a family friend name Sister Catherine Watt. I didn't even realise a simple thing until my Mum has told me about something recently. Whenever I go to a family friend's house for sleeping over after late nights of the YSA Activities last year and YSA Dances last year, that family friend has been missing my company.

I have been missed. I was surprised to know. I understand that it has been quite some time since I last went over to that family friend's house. I appreciated all of my stays when I was there.
Don't get me wrong. I have been missing Catherine a lot. I know that she has been missing my company since I haven't been seeing her much. I look forward to when I get to see her again. I hope that I will get a chance to see her before I leave to go back to Perth. 

Catherine Watt; if you are already reading this post, I suggest you to read a short letter from me.

"Dear Catherine, 
Thank you so much for allowing me to stay over at your house after late nights of the YSA Activities last year and YSA Dances last year. I really appreciated it. I really enjoyed my company with you. I loved spending some time with you. 

I love seeing you when you are happy. I love having any type of conversations with you. I look forward to see you again, and hopefully before I leave to go back to Perth. I am grateful that I got to know to you. Catherine, please always remember to keep smiling and always remember that I love you as a great family friend. 

Love From Megan."

#Because He Lives

This week has been a great and uplifting week so far. I enjoyed reading emails from friends who are serving their missions and was able to share the message on "#BecauseHeLives" for this Easter. It makes me so happy that I would like to do the same thing.

I have decided to share the message with you through a blog post. What does it mean for you when you hear "#BecauseHeLives" for the first time? When I hear "#BecauseHeLives," I think about the Saviour and many sentences to go with #BecauseHeLives.
I think about' He made sacrifices for us #BecauseHeLives.
He set a great example to us #BecauseHeLives.
He makes us to feel peace #BecauseHeLives.
We can live again #BecauseHeLives  He loves us #BecauseHeLives.
He comforts us #BecauseHeLives. He is here #BecauseHeLives.

Those were examples and it is true. I have felt the peace, I have felt the love and I have felt the comfort when I go through hard times, struggles, trails and tribulations. The most comfort that I felt was most when I was crying during some personal prayers and crying because something bad has happened. I always try my best to do what Jesus has done. Whenever I try my best, I think about a Children's Hymn called "If The Savior Stood Beside Me."

If you haven't heard it, here's the video below;
In your own time between now to Easter, I encourage you to look up the website on Easter which is While you are on the website, I encourage you to watch the video and read about Easter.

My Church is having a Easter Service on Easter and I would like to invite any friends to come along. You could anyone with you, it could be your family or your friends. The Information is;
