Family, Friends, and soon to be friends,
Yesterday we had a meeting in the Temple at 6 pm. The Assistants called us the night before to tell us that the meeting had been changed to 6:15 (like it was going to make a change in our travel plans...). We showed up at the Temple at 6 and one of the office missionaries was waiting for us (Elder Sanchez, Cominsario). He was not too terribly pleased with us and informed us that the Meeting had been changed to the Kennedy Stake Center, because the new group is HUGE and the Temple can fit them all. We were told that our house phone should have received a message... and we reminded him that he gave us a new phone, 3 weeks before, that cannot receive message. We quickly grabbed a taxi and made it to the Kennedy Stake Center at 6:10... whew! Traffic!
President Johns had a meeting with all of us Trainers and told us a little about who we would be training. I have been assigned to train Elder Dyer from Ogden Utah. When we finally got the chance to meet our trainees President Johns started reading off the names of the Trainers and then the Trainees. Elder Dyer is a super tall missionary, basketball player, football, super beast. I was knocked over when President Johns read his name and he came to meet me in the center of the room with a hug.
I am looking forward to this change. We are going to have a lot of fun! Elder Dyer is a super powerful missionary and his Spanish is already great. (Lucky for those that take advantage of Spanish in Jr. High and High School).
Love you all. Have a great week!
