"Grand as it is, planet Earth is part of something even grander- that great plan of God. Simply summarized, the Earth was created that families might be." Elder Russell M. Nelson

Up at 6:00 a.m. and breakfast at 7:00 a.m.  Today at our TRC training, after study, we practiced teaching an investigator.  We were assigned a Sister Kemp from Adelaide, Australia who moved to Provo from Australia two years ago. She had been trained to act like an investigator who had agreed to find out more about the Mormons by having the missionaries visit.

It was fun for Rick and I to teach about The Restoration together.  We realized it was easy for each of us to teach the subject by ourselves but teaching it together was a bit of a challenge and we will need to work on that.

Each meal we sat by different senior couples and learned about the missions they were going to serve.  It was very interesting.  Some requested and were called to specific missions they were interested in.  Some had sold their homes and were on their second or third missions.  Some were having to learn Russian, some Spanish, some Mongolian.

We spent our TRC training with our District couples. We are enjoying getting to know them.  Elder Myler just retired from the Tabernacle Choir. We decided to have a District picture in front of the world map.

I really appreciate the little extras that are provided for us.  There is a room with all kinds of candy available for us once a day in the training center in Building M-4.  The chairs have little stools under them for we short legged women.  The hard folding chairs have cushions that fit over the back and cover the seat so that they are comfortable for us.  Seniors are allowed to go to the front of the food lines in the cafeteria.

Our dorm floor has portable scales to weigh luggage so we took one to the car and weighed our suitcases and discovered we are about 25 lbs over the allowed.  We will have to do some juggling this weekend. Maybe Sheila's 25 pairs of shoes will have to be pared down to 20 or so. Ha Ha
