Monday morning with the Leavitt's

On Friday March 17, 2017 President and Sister Leavitt arrived to begin their adventure leading the SAJM.
What a lot of effort went in for them to be here 90 days earlier. They are ready and prepared for such a time as this and we feel so blessed to hand the mission over to such loving and capable servants of the Lord.

On Monday March 20, 2017 we had one day together at the mission office. We tried to give them exposure to people and procedures as much as possible. It was a blessing due to their early arrival to actually spend a full day together and parts of Saturday and Sunday.

The Leavitt's meet the Robison's. They have friends in common in Southern Utah. 

Destined to be great friends.

Lots of training went on during our one full day together. They met President Ashton with the MTC and also the Facilities office group- Nomkle and Shelly.

President Dunn and I also shared lots of information with them in this one day.

Sister and Elder French, as well as Dr. and Sister Jubber came to meet and introduce the physical and mental expertise they bring and assistance they give to the missions in South East Africa.
We discussed some of the parting items for missionaries that we have shared.
Both President and Sister Leavitt got help with getting their technology all set up with the help of Marc Jackson.
We had a nice lunch together with the help of Sister Vizzini and also Sister Wells and Sister Larson. We appreciated the time of Sister and Elder French to come and share about mental health and the help that is available.

They met Arthur, who is the security guard today. He is always so friendly when we come and go. He was baptized about a year ago and attends the Dobsonville ward.
Later in the day, the Leavitt's met Irene Tshabalala at the mission home. This was fun for everyone to be introduced. 
The day was full of meeting people, learning to drive on the left side of the road and also going over many procedures. But at the end of the day, the Leavitt's don't need lots of details- they will do great using their vast church experience and letting the spirit guide.
