(From Ann's blog)
Mondays in the Mission are Preparation Days. Top priority on P-Days
is sending emails home to loved ones. Today the local library computer
system was down, so we had a steady stream of missionaries coming into
the Mission Office to use the computers here. We have access to the
employment services computers in the rooms next door.
Missionaries also send a letter to President Lewis every single week.
(It takes him about 2 days to read them all, which can be tricky if we
are on the road or having a busy week) (usually the case).
In their private letters to the President, they usually report on the FACTS.
F = Family
A= their Area
C= their Companion and how they are getting along
T= their Testimony and how it’s growing
S= any Spiritual experiences they’ve had during the week.
Every now and again, with permission, President Lewis will share a
story or experience with me. I love these highlights. When the
missionaries go home, they get a CD with every letter they’ve written to
the President on it to keep for themselves. We hope it will be a nice
collection of their experiences, their growth and their testimonies.
