A lot of work goes into getting a missionary ready to begin service: missionary prep class, medical appointments, mission application, calling extended, setting apart, everything purchased at home that is then packed into a suitcase, bicycle chosen, shipped and assembled, orientation binder, food prepared... Finally, everything is ready and waiting... all that's needed is a companion.
After a morning of orientation and interviews,
getting acquainted over lunch.
Almost ready for testimony meeting and receiving
President Mullen, Elder Dyer and Elder Fisher.
Sister Blanchard playing the prelude,
a new missionary already serving.
Who is already sitting next to their new companion
but doesn't know it yet?
