Mission home

We went to the mission home today for the first time.  Our new mission president had all the senior missionaries come to the mission home today for interviews.  It was so much fun to see the mission home and then to be able to talk to our new mission president and his wife.  I really like them.  He is going to get a lot tougher on the missionaries.  They are going to live by the white hand book.  He was instructed by the brethren to have the missionaries live by that rules that have been established.  There were some unique rules for our mission so that will be great.  There first four weeks of  their mission have been very exciting.  They got Annapolis incorporated into our mission.  They picked up 26 more missionaries that are on a different transfer timing from our mission.  That will not be blended until the first of the year.  They received 22 new missionaries this week and lost that many.  It took a van and four cars to get them to the airport to check in.  They had two sister missionaries get in a car wreck and the one sister had just arrived in the mission.  I think it was her first day.  They were taken to the hospital and bandaged up and left.  So that is an exciting beginning.

  1. I came across your blog and was so pleased to find it. My son arrived there on Tuesday afternoon. We did receive a message from President Johnson saying he had arrived safe. But I loved hearing about the comings and goings. I am very excited for my son and cant wait to hear from him next week to find out where he was placed. Your blog is beautiful! Thank You for sharing. Thank You Tara Wach

  3. That's is a lot of coming and goings. The new mission president sounds like a good one. I'm glad the sisters involved in the car accident weren't severely hurt.
