April 8th all the senior missionaries, from across the state of SC met at the Irmo Ward for Senior Training. Part of the time was spent getting to know the two new, single sisters - Sister Barton and Sister Mumford. The darling new Senior Couple, the Winwards, also introduced themselves. This is their 3rd mission! They're from Kaysville, UT and served twice in Washington DC at the temple there.
President and Sister Holm did most of the training, but also the Fergusons gave a presentation on how we can get involved in the work in our everyday lives. They did a great job! Elder Ferguson always talks about his wife's "secret weapon," - her pies!
After the training, we adjourned to the Holms' home for dinner. Joining us were Brother Pendleton, from the missionary department in SLC and the Holms' son, Jef (winner of Season 8 The Bachelorette) and their son-in-law .....
The Towers and the Fentons, who are both leaving before the next Senior Training, bore their testimonies. We are going to miss the Fentons so much in the office! We have really grown to love them, as family! Good thing they live close - we'll have to get together when we get home!
