It's been a week since our interview with President Hansen. We do know that our application has made it to the Church missionary department. We got a call this past week from a sister there asking a couple of questions to clarify some confusion on our application. All is cleared up and moving forward.
I should add here, just for my remembrance that it was a mission prep day for me today. I've got choir practice this morning at 9:00; I'm directing the singing in Sacrament meeting because Sister Bryan, the music director, is out of town; and I'm teaching the High Priest group during Priesthood meeting. The lesson? Spiritual Whirlwinds, based on the talk Elder Neil L. Andersen gave in the Saturday morning session of this past April Conference. And, oh, yes, I almost forgot . . . I'm directing the music in Priesthood opening exercises.
Speaking of mission prep, did I ever mention that we went through the stake mission prep class this year? Funny story. Bishop Ridd caught me after Sacrament meeting one day and said, "Mission prep starts tonight. It's geared for seniors. Would you and Sherrie like to attend?" We did, but it turns out that it was geared for seniors . . . seniors in high school! However, we attended all but one class when we were out of town. It was a good experience for us. We were glad that we were able to attend.
