Well, I forgot that it's MLC today which means that the Assistants, Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders are meeting at the mission home with President Wall. They have training today then ZTM (zone training meeting) in their own zones on Friday. So I spent 3/4 of the day taking care of the building changes and arguing unsuccessfully with the referral system which needs a serious makeover! 

I thought that most of my communication could be done by email, but not so. Darn! I had to use the old fashioned method--the telephone. I'm still waiting for some call backs. The worst event was opening the referral page and seeing 35 new referrals! Referrals are great, but when they're sent to our mission by mistake it's almost impossible to send them on to the correct location. I had 3 today that refused to be sent no matter what I did. When I finally reached a read person in Utah she couldn't tell me what I needed to do but at least she took the information and resent it to the correct mission.

When referrals come in they sometimes include comments, so I've recorded a few (These are exactly the way they came in):

Silly me. I didn't even think that we'd have visitors today, but several of the Zone Leaders came by the office before heading home. Here they are!

Elders Griffin, Carter, Hansen and McCutcheon. Except for Elder G, ZLs in New Orleans      

                                                                                              Just as we were leaving Sister Thornley and Sister Worthington came by to say hi on their way back to Hammond. It was so good to see Sister T again. We really miss her in Plaquemine! Sister W is very beautiful, but I snapped the pic just as she was answering a question. Not very nice of me. I'll get a better on next time.

Turned out to be such a great day! Lots done before all the visits. Who wants to work when there are missionaries to see?
