We are going to have a busy few weeks coming up. Tomorrow the Thomas’ have their first ‘farewell’ testimony meeting and dinner as 5 sisters go home. Then we travel with the Thomas’ to Mbuji Mayi on Sunday to begin a week-long trip through the northern part of the mission: Mbuji Mayi, Mwene Ditu, Luputa, Ngadajika, and back to Mbuji Mayi.
The next week Elder Hamilton comes for a visit, and then we travel with the Thomas’ to Bujumbura, through South Africa for about a week. Then we have a little more than a week and Elder Ellis arrives for a mission tour—he plans to travel to all the places we just finished seeing…
The next week the Drapers (a new senior couple) arrive (about August 25) and Terri and I have to start training them prior to our leaving. New missionaries/transfers are the next week.
Very busy and full of activity. Just like we like it!
