Today we had two senior couples share experiences & talk to us about their experiences and also worked with us on finding ways to help without taking over.
When I'm at the computer and not the phone I'll be adding some of my notes from these classes--not because anyone wants to read them but because this will be my journal for the next 18 months.
Our assignment will be as member-leader support (MLS). We've been assigned to a small branch in Marksville which is about 1 1/2 hours north west of Baton Rouge. We think our responsibilities will include working with the young elders and investigators, visiting less active members & probably doing our share of speaking & teaching. But until we meet with our mission president on Jan. 9 we won't know for sure.
This evening we had the opportunity to attend the Sacred Gifts exhibit at the BYU Museum of Art. They have some Carl Bloch, Heinrich Hofmann & Frans Schwartz paintings on display. Some of the Bloch paintings have never left Denmark and will never leave again. So this was probably a once in a lifetime opportunity unless I happen to find myself in Denmark, which is highly unlikely!
