Europe East Area Presidency
and new Mission Presidents & Wives: Sorensons (Moscow), Carters (Armenia), Sartoris (Samara)
July 1, 2010 Our new wonderful life!
Our first day on the job was meeting our wonderful AP's and Office Elders. They are incredible! REALLY!!! They have been so loving and patient with us as they have guided us through the many responsibilities we now have. We have a driver, Alexander, and he is greatly needed here. The traffic in Moscow is awful and he has been safely transporting us to where we need to be. These first two weeks have been busy with meeting all our missionaries (8 couples, 35 Elders and 15 Sisters), meeting some of the great members here, interviews, many meetings, attending a baptism where three men were baptized, enjoying our first P-day by visiting Red Square and feeling the great spirit of missionary work here.
I love our missionaries! I love the members! I love Moscow!
