The highlight of the day is to hear the missionaries testimonies. The Elders are eager to share what they've learned in the MTC and get their new assignments.
We place the map on the table and introduce the areas where the missionaries will serve. One of the assistants places the photo of the trainer next to an area, and then discloses which area the missionary will go.
Elder Nielsen will be companions with Elder Eastmond in Ilovu (the "I" is pronounced with a long E sound. This is pronounced: eloovoo). Trainers and new missionaries are together for three months!
Elder Huntington will be going to Bluff.
The assistants like dragging out the suspense!
This fabulous Elder is the only member in his family. I have such great admiration for these young men to serve without much support from home.
Krronstad is in the Bloemfontein Zone.
This Elder will be serving in the country of Lesotho.
Another Elder going to Lesotho.
Elder Mashava (center) is leaving on Monday. He has served as a very faithful and humble missionary. We will miss him. He joined our new missionaries to give some expert advice!
