missions: "Our son Jeffrey was born in Logan on 18 Sept. 1947. I learned about it when a cable (international telegram) from Kathryn arrived in my mail! (Mail arrived every two weeks by a scheduled N.Z. airplane that wended through various island groups to a final stop in Rarotonga; the plane then turned around and went back after a two-hour stopover. That was the only way for visitors or mail to come in or leave, except for the irregular little boat I arrived on. We had visits from or mission presidents from New Zealand only four times in my two years on Rarotonga. We four missionaries were pretty much on our own, which was generally an advantage.)"
