I was amazed at the efficiency and speed of the Center with the intake of about 100 senior missionaries today. Some are going to far away places, including Thailand, Japan, Australia, Puerto Rico, and Bulgaria. And, some others are staying in Salt Lake City to do genealogy, etc.
And, singing the hymn, Called To Serve, had a different meaning to me today than it has had before. Especially the line about "... Far and wide we tell the Father's story..." And also the one about "... called to know the richness of His blessings...", and I know we are so blessed!
We have met so many really nice people! We had dinner tonight with some younger missionaries, and one was going to Malaysia, another to Latvia, another to Lithuania, and two others to Georgia (the one in Russia, not the one in the southern U.S.)
And, it reminds me of the verse in the Book of Mormon, at Alma 26:37, where Ammon says "... we see that God is mindful of every people, whatsoever land they may be in..."
A couple of full days of training coming up...
Luv to all,
