Here She Comes, Brazil!

Those visas have been tricky.
Another visa came.  Another great missionary is now in Brazil!
We have been blessed to have her in the MJM.


Woo Hoo! More New Missionaries!

While we waited for our new missionaries to arrive we made a new friend!
New Missionaries gather their luggage.

 They take their luggage out to load into the trailer and truck.
Oh, it was a nice warm (hot), Mississippi day!
We stop for our first group picture.
Welcome to Mississippi and the MJM!

Then it's off to the Church and food, orientation, and brief testimonies.
Oh, and back to the airport to pick up the Spanish speaking elders arriving from the Mexico MTC.
Their flight itineraries came to the Mission Office after they arrived at the airport!
The Mission Offices are located in the Church building close to the airport.
Once we arrive at the Church
President McDonough is interviewing almost the whole time. 
We need to know these wonderful, shiny new missionaries.
 Off we go to the Mission Home and a quick snack of sandwiches and fruit.  President McDonough continues interviewing.  Our new elders pick their beds upstairs. Sisters will stay with members. 
The Mission Home can sleep about eighteen missionaries comfortably.... almost comfortably.
The fourteen new elders stay in the Mission Home.
The seven new sisters go to three different members' homes.
Five sisters return to the Mission Home and breakfast before going to the Transfer Point in Clinton.

They're gonna love it!

Good-bye, Sweet Sister! We're so GLAD you came!

Thank you for the beautiful, faithful, diligent, wonderful, powerful
missionary you've been!
Watch out, World.

Interviews Conclude

.....but we'll start again next week right after transfers!


Zone Conference August 2014

I never lose my excitement to pull into the Church parking lot and see
all these shiny clean cars, hoods up, ready for inspection.
Missionaries work so hard to clean them for the coveted BOSH award.
Competition is fierce!

Many thanks to our seniors who helped judge the cars, add the scores, and prepare the awards.
Couldn't couldn't couldn't do this without them!

 I really don't know.




More great Zone Conferences!
The best part is:
the teaching, training, and practicing;
the revelatory box recording what the Holy Ghost teaches YOU;
what you'll do now; 
being with the great bunch of missionaries we have serving here!
Don't you love 'em?
I do!
