Last night, Saturday Dec 1, 2012, we sat at dinner with a couple from Calgary, Alberta, Canada who had just arrived today. His name is Wilford Woodruff, a great grandson of the church president. As we were visiting, Elder Cook sitting on the right side of Elder Hutchinson joined in the conversation saying, " My great grandfather baptized Wilford Woodruff." (I believe they said Elder Pulsiver.)
We have Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday training on Young Single Adults and then we fly off to Poland on Thursday at 1:00 pm. We are nervous but very excited!
Alan Hopper, a Warnock cousin, is here in the MTC. Richard and Donna’s daughter Joy’s son. We have seen him almost every day in the Bookstore or the Cafeteria. The first day we were so excited to see each other that we hugged before we thought about mission rules. Woops! Paul Sorensen, from Cedar Hills Stake is here. We met Lloyd and Mary Lee Burton from Roosevelt, asked them if they knew Bob and Becky Gilbert, they did and added that they served in Nauvoo with Carl and Sybil Warnock. Mike Murphy from Simi Valley, CA is one of the teachers for Senior Missionaries. We have met 4 young Elder missionaries going to Poland on Dec 17th. We will get there 10 days ahead of them. We love being missionaries.Thanks for all your love and support getting us off on this mission! We could not have done it without all the help.
