Sisters Cloward, Burton and Aeschbacher (the
Being that I am over apartments Miriam and I did 20 apartment checks this week. We did the Augusta South and North Zones. It was cold and rainy but we always have a good time together. We have been blessed with the ability to improve the housing for a lot of our missionaries. When the surge started last winter, they were just taking any apartment they could find. And some of those apartments were not good at all. So I have been working very hard and finding better housing and Lord has truly blessed our efforts as we have been able to provide much better housing where needed. We even had long term leases to get out of to accommodate the move and so far we have been able to get out of them without cost to the Church. The surge on missionaries seems to have stopped. We are now returning a missionary for each new one that comes. Our mission has doubled its number of missionaries since the surge started.
The work is wonderful. We are so busy and we love it. This week we have two meetings and next week we have a visiting General Authority with 3 zone conferences. Busy, busy, and then we get busy!!!!!
