A Different Adventure
Last week we were called into the Area President's office (you thought being called into the principles office was scarey)... just kidding, it really was not scarey at all. Elder Perkins is my age and a great guy. We kind of new what was coming when we got the phone call because our good friends the Normans had just been told that they should probably return home because of Sister Norman's health. Elder Norman was serving as the executive secretary to the Area Presidency and it is a position that really could not be vacant while they tried to replace them as this is at least a 3 month process. So they asked us to take a change of assignment and fill this position and try to help cover off our old position until they could replace us there. So although we will not be travelling anymore in our new assignment we will have the opportunity to work closely with the Area presidency. Although we are still trying to figure out exactly what we do one of our first assignments is to help organize Elder Nelson's and Elder Bednar's visits in May. We will make our last visit (Nepal) while they go to conference. Mission life is great and we are happy to be able to serve where ever needed.
