2 more mission calls, and a special visit from Pres. & Sis. Mecham

Two more of the young adults on the Island received their mission calls. Joni Yakana is going to a Philippines mission I can't pronounce. let alone spell, and Demi Pelto is going to the Australia Sydney Mission.  We delivered them last Friday, but Joni's grandfather was off Island until yesterday, so they both decided to wait until he was back to open their calls.
  They did it at Mutual last night and it was a sweet experience for both. They cried as they read where the Lord had assigned them. Today they will come over and pick out some clothes to take with them

    We also had a special visit from Pres. & Sister Mecham, our mission president and his wife. We had a short meeting with all the missionaries
Demi, as we delivered her Mission Call

A laugh as we took guesses on where she would go

Joni, a few tears, when we handed it to her, she could not believe she was
really going to go

A big hug from Grandma ( and Mama, grandma and grandpa have raised Joni)

Joni and her grandparents, they have also raised Joni
and received some great training. Then they had meetings with all the District Presidency and branch presidents to do some training.
   We love it when they come, they always know what to say to buoy us up and help us get back on track and work harder.

Love our Missionaries, Love our young adult, Love this mission.

Best thing you can ever do FOR your life.
