There are 5000 couple missionaries. The church needs 10,000. Elder Perkins is in our mission. He met with the senior missionaries of our mission tonight. We were going to have a BBQ at the mission home. We were hoping to go there because we have not been to the mission home yet. But it started to rain so we met at a Church close by in Gaithersburg, Maryland, which is where the mission home is. We had a potluck dinner and the President BBQ the chicken. Then Elder Perkins talked to us. He opened it up to questions. It was a great evening and we really enjoyed spending the time with the other couples. We don't see them every often.
We had a meeting this morning. It is exciting to see the changes that are going to be made in our teaching assignment. We will miss being at the Barlow but we are looking forward to the possibilities that are ahead.
Just as we finished that meeting our new BYU professor came in to meet us and tour the building. He is a history professor, Andrew Johns. He will be here for two semesters. I think we are going to get along with him really well. So many new things ahead.
