The District

We had a wonderful group of missionaries in our district. The 60 plus senior missionaries were divided into smaller groups called districts. We were instructed by a group of amazing return missionaries during the week. Left to right: Elder and Sister Boyter (going to Malaysia: Church Education System Mission), Sister and Elder Jensen (San Diego: Military Relations Mission), Brother Jacobs (Instructor), Brother and Sister Hodgman (Guatemala Mission: Missionaries), Elder and Sister Bylund ( Scotland/Ireland: Young Single Adults Missionaries), Sister Fillmore (Instructor), Sister Andersen (Instructor) and her soon to be fiancé. We took the instructors out to dinner one night to Zuppas.


It is tradition for the missionaries to point where they are going on their mission.

Made it to the M.T.C.

Today we entered the Missionary Training Center or MTC. There will be just over 700 new young men and young women coming in this Wednesday, about half are young women. Each week there are this many or less. There will be close to 100,000 of them within a few months. Fun to see where they are from all over the world and where they are being sent to!!!!

When we walked into the MTC lobby, a senior sister missionary came up and helped mom put on her missionary tag. Mom broke down with tears coming down her cheeks. Just so happy to have made it here and feeling so much better with all her sickness. This has been a dream for her for so long. The sister missionary also started to cry. A special moment :)

Love you all!
