Sister Thomas had reviewed the flats and provided some guidance on which flats should have elders staying over as guests and which should not. Only two elders can stay over night in a boarding where there is only one bathroom. We felt like one of the problems is that two many stay at one boarding and even when they get up on time they don’t get up early enough so six or eight elders can get through the morning bathroom cycles.
We also took some time to discuss the options on how to improve and then counseled with the Elders about their personal obedience and the example it sets for all the Elders in their Zone. They fully excepted that it is up to them and they are the priesthood leaders and they need to act accordingly. I am please that President Merrill’s vision is beginning to take hold.
In the picture clockwise beginning with Sister Thomas is Elder Murphy, Judd, Malpage, Capozzoli. These are some of Heavenly Fathers finest. It is a wonderful process seeing how they become leaders in the mission as they allow the mantle of responsibility fall upon their shoulders. We dearly love them.
