Missionaries in Tallahassee had a great day on Thursday. First, they helped serve over 1000 meals at a community event with a 30 year tradition. Then, the campus missionaries, some friends and two of our senior couples came to the mission home for a fun time, some games and singing, and of course a several-course … More Thanksgiving
Receiving new missionaries is like Christmas! We SO look forward to meeting our new lifelong friends and fellow servants. This group came with a lot of energy. Great things await.
Whenever I’m out in the mission, I try to capture moments and smiling faces. It’s such a joy to be around these wonderful, happy young adults!
Occasionally we invite the missionaries to a family home evening at the mission home. We try to model all the elements of the meeting including songs, “family business”, lesson, activity, and, of course, refreshments. We played a fun game that involved a cup of flour and a penny…and a few noses!
Sometimes certain people get a hold of my phone and they take a million selfies. I promised I would take the worst ones and post them. And here’s a nice one… just because. The “Gratitude Glasses” help us all to remember to look at life with a more thankful heart.
We had a great conference with the Tallahassee missionaries. We basically follow the same agenda for all of them, yet each one feels so unique and special. ¡Hola to our Spanish missionaries!
We loved meeting with these two awesome groups. It was a change of pace to meet together this time. Sorry we have so few pictures from this special day.
