There´s been a lot of talk and excitement going on lately about the mission. As you probably have heard, there are thousands of more young missionaries who are now entering the field, thanks to the First Presidency´s inspired decision to lower the age from 21 to 19 for women, and 19 to 18 for men. Our mission is going to expand, and in the last couple of months President Giuliani has been asking our zone leaders about where he can place sister missionaries. We´ve heard that by april we will have 50 more! And that almost every sister missionary will be training next transfer (we are 24 right now)! I was thinking that I wasn´t going to witness part of this new revolution, but it looks like I might be part of passing the baton to these youngin´s, who will be expected to train immediately after their training to help out the NEXT slew of the Lord´s angels! Woot!!! I honor these young men and young women who jumped to the call to serve. They really are the chosen generation, and I feel like their big sister, preparing the way for them. We are in the middle of some exciting times people... just think about all the changes that have taken place in just the past three or four years, with mormon messages and the increase of website use to spread the gospel, among many other things.
I could go on and on about this, but we have an apartment to clean, oh and wonderful people to teach! : )
Love you! Love the work! Thank you for your Christmas cards! I got them all on Friday!
