I think we have made it clear that we love our mission. We associate with the best people with whom we share a common purpose. Working in the mission office has really opened my eyes to how much WORK there is in missionary work. Supporting the efforts of over 150 missionaries is a daunting task to say the least. Housing, transportation, medical needs, emotional challenges, bills to pay, meetings to coordinate, training and more... all this goes on 365 days a year. Add to that the fact our mission includes parts of 4 states - well I think you get the picture.
We have taken on the management of the fleet of mission vehicles as an additional duty. It has been challenging but rewarding also. To give you a little feel for what we have been doing pay special attention to the desk in the before and after pictures below.
