Our interview days are long and tiring, but its the time when we get to know our missionaries on a more personal level. We typically get to two Zones each day...one from 9 til 1, and one from 2 til 6...if all goes well! President Ogden gives a spiritual thought, then he starts individual interviews. While he's interviewing, I do some kind of teaching, then the AP's do training. When they're done, we have a snack and visit a little, then the missionaries who have had their interviews start leaving. When the last interview is done, we zip to the next Zone...hoping to have time for lunch along the way!
This time, I took a picture of each Zone. Sadly, I forgot at Nottingham...but Sister Kawakami and Sister Styles told me they'd get me a picture of their zone.
They are, from top to bottom...
Lichfield Zone, Birmingham Zone, Leicester Zone, Coventry Zone, Cardiff Zone, Merthyr Tydfil Zone, and Cheltenham Zone.
Aren't they wonderful looking missionaries!?! They come from Italy, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Africa, the Netherlands, Russia, Austria, Australia, Scotland, England, Canada, and the United States. What a privilege it is to work with them!
A little bonus of serving in this part of the world....We stopped for a little picnic dinner in Ross-on-Wye, sitting on the grassy banks of the Wye River...not bad!
