Afterward we went to the Hamilton Gardens and then on the way home stopped for ice cream, which seems to be a big tradition for all the missionaries here.
There are a lot of different missionaries working in the area office with all sorts of assignments: public affairs, Church Education System (CES), welfare and self reliance, mental health advisers, general counsel, medical and others. We are the only family history missionaries. We each come from different back grounds with different talents. Yet the unity we have as a group has been great. I look forward to getting to know others in the mission in the coming months and hope that we will be able to stay in touch with some as life long friends.
