Acts 18:8 – ‘And many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized’.
Sorry!! It’s been a long time since we posted anything! The last few months have been crazy as we were responsible for the closing of the Georgia Macon Mission office by June 30th and the transferring of all the missionary and financial information to the four missions that were absorbing our mission. We stayed in the Macon office until June 13th finalizing everything and then we moved our 5th wheel to Augusta Georgia where we will be finishing our mission. One of the ward members, brother Peacock and his wife and father moved our unit for us at no charge and even paid for lunch which was supposed to be on us. The Augusta Zone is now in the South Carolina Columbia mission. Our new mission president is President Holm. He and his wife just started their three-year mission July 1st. Shortly after our arrival in Augusta, the president and his wife hosted a party for all the senior couples at the mission home in Columbia, South Carolina. We had a wonderful time and it was great meeting the other senior couples in our mission. Our new assignment is to assist the Elders and Sisters in their proselyting and to help in reactivating. During the last several months in Macon, Georgia, along with our office responsibilities, we were able to visit 135 households of less active members. We met many wonderful people and hopefully we made a difference in some of their lives. President Bowman challenged the missionaries to Baptize 100 souls in June, the last month of the Georgia, Macon Mission. They baptized 114 which was quite an accomplishment.
Right now the weather is hot and humid. Yesterday, August 4th was a high of 104 degrees. It is hard on us old people because many of the homes we visit are poor and have little or no air conditioning. When we step into their homes we feel like a Thanksgiving Turkey being cooked for dinner! We have some interesting stories and pictures to put on this site in the near future. Some, however, will date back to our Georgia, Macon days as we are just finding a little time to catch up.
Love you all,
Elder and Sister Hansen
