After a hopefully good night sleep, the new missionaries had training and met their trainees. They had a short meeting for the new trainers. I asked them who was more stressed -- they not knowing what their trainee would be like or the new missionaries not knowing what their trainer would be like. They thought probably the new missionaries were more stressed.
After the training was completed, I helped Sis. Smith and her new missionary trainee, Sis. Greenberg, get some brochures they needed. As I was carrying them to their car, they stopped to check with the office Elders about getting an oil change. I set down the brochures, and then we all forgot about them. So we ended up stopping at their apartment in Bradenton to deliver the brochures. While there, I was able to fix a couple of problems in their apartment, so it turned out to be a beneficial stop.
When I was getting dressed this morning, I noticed a problem with my tie. This is a tie that I wore quite a bit before coming on our mission. The tie is now worn out. I have never worn out a tie before. This one is is frayed where the knot is tied.
