Interviews begin in Wenatchee

2017-9-28 Wenatchee Interviews (1)After getting everyone to their places, we got in the car and raced to Wenatchee to start catching up on the interviews we had planned for this week.  We drove through 2 hours of beautiful Washington country and a mountain pass and made it to Wenatchee just after 6:00 p.m.  Dinners were over and we went to work, visiting with these fine missionaries.

I continue to ask if they could have any 3 wishes, what would they be, and also to describe their favorite tie, dress or skirt.  I’m also doing a photo shoot of what they carry with them when they go tracting.  “What’s in your Bag?”
