Because we stay in Tampa for the transfer time, we typically attend a district meeting in the Tampa area. However, district meetings will be held on Thursday morning (Thanksgiving) this week. Since we didn't have any other assignments, we volunteered to conduct some apartment inspections in the Tampa area. Normally these are done by Pres. and Sister Healey. However, they have been swamped with mission office work and are behind. So we did three apartment inspections. Only one of them had problems, fortunately not severe.
We then drove to the mission home to meet the arriving missionaries. Each time when the missionaries leave, we wonder how we will replace the leaders who are departing. And then we meet the arriving missionaries and recognize there are some good potential leaders arriving. This is a small group of missionaries, 6 Elders and one Sister. One of the arriving missionaries is returning. He was here for a short time a year ago and returned home because of health issues. Hopefully those are now all resolved.
