Missionaries Galore!

Today was such a fun day! Elder L and I went to the Mission Home to help Sister Hansen serve lunch to the 11 missionaries attending MLC. I still don't know exactly what MLC stands for, but it's something like Missionary Leadership Council and includes all the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders. It was so good to see so many familiar faces but got even better after the meeting ended and they started streaming into the office. Also, several of them stayed and had their quarterly interview with the President, so they came and went for about 3 hours.

Elder Mecham--Assistant to the President--relaxing after a busy day of training

Elder Griffin--Assistant to the President and Marc Blocker's double in almost every way. He even has many of the same mannerisms. I'll be very sad when he's released in August. 

Well, these Elders might not have been to MLC. On the left is Elder Borget. He's another visa waiter who's been waiting over a year to go to Brazil. Next to him is our former office elder, Elder Adkins. We miss his smile and great attitude! Elder Abbot is in the purple shirt, and I know nothing about him, and Elder Bracken is our St. George elcer who just retuned after a 3 month medical release. It's good to have him back and know that all's well with his health.

Elder Steele--one of our 2 ever hard working office elders. I don't know what we'd do without him and Elder Watkins!

This is Sister Ogden and Sister Betts, STLs from Alexandria Zone. Aren't they adorable? Sister O is from Chico CA & Sister Betts is now from Colorado Springs. She grew up in Long Beach and actually went to the building where Bronson and Rosa now attend. Her dad's a police officer and they moved to CO about 10 years ago. I'm thinking that was a very smart decision for a police officer.

Sister Allen and Sister Brady, STLs from New Orleans South Zone.  Sadly they weren't in the office for long--just time to pick up some planners and a case of copies of the Book of Mormon (40 per box) then head home to Houma--about 1 1/2 hours southeast from Baton Rouge.

After spending 30 minutes trying to rearrange pictures I've given up! The whole top of the post is messed up and Elder Mecham refuses to move down the page. That's just how it's going to have to be!!
