Are these the cutest elders ever? The are the Assistants and Office Elders loading up the new bikes that were delivered to the office recently. It'll actually be nice to get them out of the elders' work space so they can have a little more room to move around. Elders Adkins and Watkins were on their way to the mission home to pick up all the luggage that came into town with the 6 new missionaries that arrived safely today--no bad weather, so missed or canceled flights, no weather delays, and no unexpected trips to the New Orleans airport. Hooray! We asked the AP's how the new missionaries were doing. They were tired but fine, but poor Sister B is the only sister in the group and is feeling a bit lonely on her own. Well, I know who her new companion will be, and I'm so excited for them both! Sister B will be well taken care of. From checking the transfer board, it looks like she'll actually be in a trio with her trainer and a sister who came in on our last transfer. Sister trainer will be a busy mother hen.
For the second week in a row we had no new missionaries assigned to our mission. In our meeting yesterday President Wall said something about the southeastern part of the US is being looked at to see if missionaries are being utilized in the best possible way. I don't know this for sure, but maybe they're waiting till a decision has been made to make any more assignments. And I could be totally wrong which is nothing new:)
I'm wondering how we can keep so busy from 7:30 to 5:30 and I have nothing to write about. Must be because of things related to transfers. I know tomorrow is going to be bitter-sweet because of the changes that will be made, but that's all a part of the mission process and has to be expected. It will also give our elders, particularly, new experiences and potential to grow. Now I'm off to prepare for tomorrow's orientation. I didn't even get around to doing that today.
