We attended the East London Zone Interviews and Training meeting today, which proved to be a spiritual feast for us as well as the missionaries.
Sister Thomas along with the help Sister Chase provided the lunch with was Million Dollar Spaghetti, Corn, Garlic Bread then for desert there were Sister Chase’s Heavenly Oat Bars with ice cream. All I heard was “Awesome!”
Elder Wells and Stratton used their time to teach on the Atonement and Missionary work. They presented a video with President Eyring and Elder Holland speaking to help missionaries better understand that while they might feel like missionary work is hard, there is one missionary who has walked the path they are walking. Through his actual ministry and through the wonderful act of the Atonement, our Savior knows and understands. We need to act with continued faith and perseverance until that Lord’s promises are clear.
We also had a wonderful dinner with President and Sister Merrill and President and Sister Wheeler in the evening. We enjoyed getting the update about how the mission is doing from the President.
