LABRM is Growing!

We knew this was going to happen soon but didn't know when. Looks like today! Look at all of our new missionaries! We were notified of 2 yesterday, then 10 more arrived this morning. I was actually working on the whole process until 3 and used up every extra packets I'd made a few weeks ago, but I took advantage of a very quiet workplace and spread everything out in the President's office to make 20 more. President and Sister Wall and the Assistants are on a 3 day away-from-home interview excursion. The office elders had gone to district meeting and lunch, Elders L and F were searching for housing in Oakdale--2 hours from Baton Rouge, and the phone was quiet. Sometimes "alone but not lonely" says it all.

Back to the incomings. We only have 7 coming next week, then our numbers really jump. In the following 2 transfers we, so far, have 43 plus 2 senior couples, but we're only losing about 30. That means more missionaries, more apartments, more cars, more supplies, More Everything! There are so many files in the drawer that I had to fashion a temporary file to manage the overflow.

Looks like President and Sister Hansen will be running full speed ahead out of the starting gate without even having a chance to unpack!
