Matthew 4:19 Follow me (Christ), and I will make you fishers of men.
Wow! One just begins to get into another comfort zone and bang, something just comes along and changes everything!
Just a little over a week ago Marian twisted her knee and badly injured it. She was not able to walk on it at all for a couple of days. We took her to a specialist who gave her a shot, pain pills, and some exercises and told her to come back in three weeks. She had a priesthood blessing shortly after the accident and was promised a quick recovery. Today she is walking without pain or crutches.
Last Thursday the mission president called all the Missionaries together and after about two hours of trying to prepare us, announced that the first Presidency of the Church had decided to close the Georgia Macon Mission on June 30. This came as quite a surprise as this was one of the best performing missions in the Church and the highest baptizing mission in our region. All the missionaries, including us, will be reassigned to other missions. There will still be missionaries in all the same cities, but the cities will be assigned to a different office either in the Atlanta mission, Columbia mission or the Florida mission. At this time we have no idea where we will be going. Since we are office missionaries, We can only assume that it will take some time for us to close down the office and all the financial matters after the official closing of the mission on June 30th. Life goes on and changes are a fact of life!
