Welcome to our Adventures Down Under blog!

On December 5, 2016 we will enter the Provo MTC. Two weeks later we depart for Australia. Here's a little bit about the Australia Melbourne Mission and the "Land Down Under"...

The Australia Melbourne Mission covers the entire State of Victoria, all of Tasmania and part of New South Wales. The State of Victoria is the country's smallest mainland state and is located at the lower southeast portion of the country.

Victoria is the most diverse of Australia's states and has a very temperate climate and has leaves on the trees, flowers, and fresh vegetables and fruits year around. The season in Australia are pretty much the opposite from Utah: winter is summer, and summer is winter. The average temperature in the summer varies from 25 degrees C (77 F) on the coast to 35 C (96 F) in the warmer regions. In the alpine regions of the northwest, winter temperatures average between 3 C (37 F) and 10 C (50 F). Tasmania can be colder in the winter than Victoria. Inland New South Wales can be hotter in summer.

Melbourne has a population of over three million people and is a very cosmopolitan city with more than 60 nationalities.

We are looking forward to serving in the Australia Melbourne Mission! It will be a great adventure, but most importantly, a joy to share the gospel with others and invite them to "come unto Christ".
