Day Four of Training

We met with Mike Cottle this morning at 9 for round table. They will now start working with Mike on institute. We had a meeting with Susana to make our final preparations for Scott to come on Tuesday to inspect the apartments. He has told us he is bring his wife because she is more critical than he is. Bring it on. Everyone comes to attention when Scott comes. He will be here to welcome the students and get the semester started. We stopped today long enough to go to lunch but we stayed at it until 6:30. Which was a super long day for Elder Thunell because we had him get up and let the plumber in at 6:30 a.m.  We worked on emails, scheduling, and setting up auto reloading bus passes for them. Then there was more good-byes. Elder Anthony helped them set up the Internet and TV with Comcast. We got to visit and tell Lilly our 94 year old friend good-byu. We saw Wayne the building engineer and told him good-bye. The people in the condo are use to the missionary turn overs. Once again he said no other missionaries have been like you. He wanted our phone number in case he ever gets to Utah. In talking with Susana she started crying and said I don't want you to go.  You will be the hardest missionaries to say good-bye to.  We have worked so closely with her it is going to be hard to leave her and the Thunells knowing Susana is going to need so much help when the baby comes. Thunells also met Jeff the FM boss. He teared up when he said I don't know how we could have pulled off all these projects without Elder Anthony.  I am every uncomfortable with all these good-byes. I would much rather just disappear in the night.

  1. It has to be hard to say good-bye to those you have worked with and served for so long. You'll be a hard act to follow. You're amazing people!
