Humanitarian efforts

This picture was taken at the Humanitarian Center of huge bundles of clothes waiting to be sealed and shipped all over the world wherever there is a need.


Here we are in the MTC, pointing on the famous map at our mission destination! It's been a very intense and tiring week -- they don't cut much slack for Senior missionaries. We received a bunch of training on Preach My Gospel and were impressed. The more we learn about our mission the more enthusiastic we become and the more anxious we are to actually get to Bogota. Unfortunately, we still don't have visas and are hoping they come soon. The food in the MTC is plentiful and not very good. Fortunately, people come and take us out to dinner. We went up to SLC today for a tour of welfare square and the humanitarian services building. Very impressive. The rest of the week we get trained on welfare and humanitarian services. Carolyn is hoping I'm better able to stay awake. She had her eagle eye on me during the PMG sessions, ready to poke me when necessary.
