Learning about the WYM

2016-1-12 Arrivals (144)Tonight we had more orientation –the APs introduced themselves and each companionship introduced each other.  I told them all a bit about our Lewis family and who we are and what we are like, and then the Assistants talked about each zone in the mission and what it’s like here.  The excitement is building.

After President Lewis finished the interviews, we had a wonderful testimony meeting before sending everyone to bed.2016-1-12 Arrivals (147)Everyone got WYM t-shirts (for P-days and service projects.)2016-1-12 Arrivals (148)And then it was time for bed.  The Sisters are in the basement this time, and the 7 Elders are upstairs tucked into bed.  Tomorrow the fun continues.2016-1-12 Arrivals (149)Our next job was to figure out which of our designated trainers would train which of these wonderful missionaries.  We met until midnight, until everything felt absolutely right, and after careful and thoughtful prayer, we felt we’d determined the right spot for each to serve, with the right companion.  We are really excited.  We feel God’s Hand in this work, and know He is directing what happens here.  It’s quite obvious as we watch how things unfold.

As we worked, the snow fell, quietly, softly, and beautifully.  By 1:00 a.m. we had almost 5 new inches of white covering our world.  Pres. Lewis and the APs cleared the driveway and got things ready for an early morning departure for the 2 who will be heading to the southern parts of the mission.

Said tonight by Elder Carter after a day with the new missionaries, “I don’t think I’ll EVER have this much fun in my life. EVER.”2016-1-12 Night (1)2016-1-12 Night (2)2016-1-12 Night (3)
