Myung Hwa is an extremely vivacious and bright person (Hwa in her name apparently means "bright" and it certainly suits her) so it was extremely easy for people to talk with her and also to share her wisdom. Conversations were always lively and often with a lots of laughter.

The visit was not only designed to highlight the good and bad of the being Church in remote NSW but also to bring encouragement to the small congregations. For those who don't live in remote areas it is hard to understand just how encouraging it is when someone like the Moderator of the Synod makes an effort to come and visit. In more than one place someone said to me, "this has been such a tremendous boost for us". It is often easy to feel forgotten, especially if you are not all that big.
