Here are the Calls and the Thompsons, who are our full-time missionary couples. They keep busy every day in the office. Elder Call is our mail man, recorder and referral manager. He also helps Elder Thompson with the car fleet. Sister Call is our mission secretary. She takes the phone calls, interfaces with the parents, proselyting supplies, prepares materials for President Lewis and keeps everyone laughing.
Elder Thompson is our Car Czar. He looks after 180 teenage drivers and their cars. Need I say more? Sister Thompson takes care of all of the mission finances and housing needs. That includes 180 missionaries spending money and their MSF debit cards, looking for apartments to rent, and furnishing them. She also mends pants.
These are stellar couples.
They are joined below by Sister Vandeventer, our mission nurse. She saves our necks. She is available 24/7 to help any troubled missionary. She reports every phone call or conversation with every sick or injured missionary. On a typical day, there could be a dozen or more reports made. She also keeps track of missionaries receiving special medical care or on meds. She is invaluable to us.Being on a mission here is the best ever thing!
