I went into the office this morning and Alan went to the airport to meet the new senior couple that arrived today. There is so much that needs to be done this week to be ready for our wheelchair training next week that I had to miss meeting the plane. Alan was really impressed with this new couple. I can’t wait to meet them.
I had a huge day at the office. Ana is sick and she couldn’t do much today, even though she came in for a couple of hours. I spent most of that time trying to stay away from her! I can’t get sick now!! We were finalizing the list of participants for the training and trying to get everything done that the Schnebly’s have sent us. So much for asking them to tell us what needs to be done a month ahead so this wouldn’t happen.
After work we met the Beans at the Twin Towers store and picked up the turkeys for our Thanksgiving dinner. Villi, the man that runs the store met us and gave us the turkeys at a HUGE DISCOUNT. They cost $84.00 each and he cut the price to $54.00 and then gave us one free. Not only that, he threw in 3 hams!! We will use those for our Christmas dinner. That was very generous of him. The Beans said he did the same thing last year for the senior missionaries. That costs him a lot of money but he says it is his gift to us. We will all support him as long as we are here, so hopefully it will pay off for him too.
We didn’t have FHE tonight, we will all be together on Thanksgiving so that will be it for this week. I have spent a lot of time planning and assigning things for dinner. Being the District Leader is a very time consuming job, and this week we just don’t have the time. Thank heaven we have great people to work with, who are very supportive.
