Word of our mission is getting out
Last evening I took our mission acceptance papers to be signed by Bishop Moore before the priesthood session of General Conference began. While waiting for Bishop Moore, Brother Call, the Stake Executive Secretary asked (just as he has each time we've met for the past month), "Have you heard anything yet?" This time I could answer, "Yes!" Brother Call asked, "Where are you going?" By that time I think a few of the Sun City Ward members sitting nearby may have begun to wonder what we could be talking about. Bishop Moore and Frank Munden, his First Counselor, had joined us by then. As Bishop Moore signed the papers he told Frank about our mission ... which elicited some consternation on Frank's part! After Bishop Moore asked me to remind him who would be conducting Sacrament Meeting next Sunday (I would be), he asked to be given a few minutes at the end of the meeting for him to announce our mission call.
