We drove to the mission office this morning for a meeting with Pres. Cusick and several Elders and sister missionaries. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss how to better work with digital devices in missionary efforts. Some of the outcomes from the meeting was to ensure that the missionaries have read the materials developed by the Church on missionary use of digital devices and safeguards for using technology. Unexpectedly, there was a long discussion on planning which arose from noting the area book/planner app on the iPads. Apparently, many missionaries are not planning their efforts as effectively as is needed.
Following the meeting, we hung around the mission office and happened to be there when a new senior missionary couple, the McAra's, arrived. This will be their second mission having previously served in Australia. They will be assigned to a ward and will work specifically with that unit.
We ended the day with a nice dinner with the Cusick's and Healey's. It is good to work with people we have known for many years.
