The day is FINALLY here! We reported to the Missionary Training Center today. Of course, we were the first senior couple to arrive; you know Lee is not going to be late. The first thing we did was get our name tags. We feel really official now.
But more important than that was our ministerial card that gives us the authority to preach the principles of the gospel, That is when it really it me - I am a representative of Jesus Christ - what an awesome responsibility. There are 64 senior missionaries here in our group. Two other couples will be serving in Palmyra with us - the Howells and the Heyns. The MTC is expecting 121 senior missionaires beginning October 1st.
