On Friday we met at the Scarsdale Chapel with all the new missionaries and their trainers. The first hour the new missionaries meet with Elder and Sister Gardner for Vehicle Safety training while we meet with the trainers. Then we gather for a couple hours of training followed by lunch.
It has been cold and rainy for over a week now. I miss the sun! But everything is getting so green and the flowers and trees are blooming everywhere. It is beautiful! Despite the cold rainy weather, Sister Gardner was able to get beautiful pictures of all these new companionships.
William would rather be with the missionaries then anywhere else. Every now and then we let him miss school. I loved having him with us on Friday. It is also great motivation to get him to practice the piano. When he attends a meeting he usually accompany's either the opening or closing hymn. At this meeting he played "Praise to the Man" flawlessly for all 4 verses. Proud mama moment! (even if he is sticking out his tongue in this pic)
At the beginning of our meeting each companionship introduces their companion and tells what they have learned from them. I always enjoy listening to what they say and how they build each other up and encourage one another.
