This was our District in the MTC. From Left to Right - The Neiburg going to Sweden, Masons going to Alaska, Provinces going to Guatamala and our morning trainer Brother Rowe.
We got very close to this group while in the MTC and we are already planning a reunion in Canada.
Everyone gets to use the laundry mat while your here - this is only 1/4 of them and they are busy all the time
Wendy and I had the pleasure of celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary here in the MTC. It was awesome. Wendy couldn't pucker up to kiss me on the cheek because she just came back from the dentist where she had a root canal and was still all frozen up. Doesn't get any better than this.
Elder and Sister Bird are full time missionaries called to oversee all Senior Missionary couples applications. They were so fun. They were at Ricks College when Wendy and I were there. Wendy knew Sister Bird as Sister Bird was in Student body affairs and met with Wendy on committee work from time to time. Bro. Bird has been a seminary teacher all his life. They told us that there are 6000 seniors serving right now and the current Mission Presidents have requested an additional 8000 (4000 couples) as soon as possible.
Wendy and I really connected with this wonderful couple. They will be serving a Military mission in Portland. He is X military. They served their first mission in England and came home with 75 new sons and daughters that they called their children. They have such strong testimonies and are just wonderful wonderful people. We really hope to see them in 2 years.
Wendy and I loved seeing the new missionaries show up on Wednesdays. They are so well taken care of and have so many people here that just make their first hour, first experience so wonderful. We are very impressed at these wonderful young people. They are the best.
