We have been richly fed, literally! The missionary department did everything possible to make our stay and training incredible. We arrived to people knowing us by name, fresh flowers everywhere,welcome basket in our rooms at the Marriott,amazing food at every meal,food at every break....just went on and on. But we were richly fed spiritually as well. Very involved and intense training. The church doesn't mess around with missionay work and their missionaries. We were taught by the prophet,the twelve and the seventy. We enjoyed beautiful music and met people from all over the world. We were up at 6:30 and fell into bed at 11:00. We had the opportunity, to meet 12 of our missionaries that will arrive in New Jersey in a rw weeks.It truly was a wonderful experience. We were told that this is a great time to be a missionary for the church because everyone is wanting to know more because of the media exposure we are receiving. A lot of it is happening in the New York, New Jersey area. We are ready and excited to begin. We fly out Thursday! Snookie and The Situation here we come!
