    The Voyage

    The weather during most of the twenty-five days of the voyage was good.LS 331.4

    At Honolulu the ship remained nineteen hours—and what enjoyable hours they were! Here the party were met by several of the brethren and sisters, were shown the beauties of the place, and were given a feast at the home of Sister Kerr. Meanwhile, notices were circulated, and in the evening Mrs. White spoke to a large audience in the hall of the Young Men's Christian Association.LS 332.1

    On her sixty-fourth birthday, one day before the ship reached Samoa, Mrs. White wrote:LS 332.2

    “As I contemplate the past year, I am filled with gratitude to God for His preserving care and loving-kindness. We are living in a perilous time, when all our powers must be consecrated to God. We are to follow Christ in His humiliation, His self-denial, His suffering. We owe everything to Jesus, and renewedly I consecrate myself to His service, to lift Him up before the people, to proclaim His matchless love.”LS 332.3

    About noon, December 3, the Alameda tied up to the Auckland wharf. Very soon a number of representative members of the Auckland church were on board, welcoming the party to New Zealand. All were invited to the home of Brother Edward Hare. During dinner many incidents of Elder Haskell's first visit were related. In the afternoon an inspection was made of the city and its beautiful suburbs. In the evening, in the first Seventh-day Adventist meetinghouse built south of the equator, Mrs. White spoke to an eager congregation, on the love of Jesus.LS 332.4

    Early next morning the Alameda proceeded on her way, and entered Sydney harbor at 7 A.M., December 8. Elder and Mrs. A. G. Daniells were waiting at the wharf. During the week spent at their home Mrs. White spoke twice to the Sydney church.LS 332.5

    December 16, the party reached Melbourne, and were given a most hearty welcome by Elder Geo. C. Tenney and his associates in the publishing house. In anticipation of Mrs. White's arrival, Elder Tenney had vacated his new house, and insisted that she and her helpers walk in and make themselves at home.LS 333.1
