Drop off day ....

What a wonderful day. Sister Johansen finished packing this morning in preparation for her entering the mission home at 1:15 pm. We went to the Brick Oven where her friend Sarah met us for lunch. Then it was off to the MTC. We took a few pictures and kicked her out onto the curb. We were a little late but they accepted her any way. She is off to get her packet and then to her first class. We know she will do great :)

Words from President Heyman on the mission being divided.

It's not a rumor if it's true.....
From the day that Diane and I arrived in the Gran Mision Argentina Resistencia people were asking about plans to divide the mission. In fact, I even read on some blogs before we arrived that that was going to be the first thing that happened when I arrived. Rumors came and rumors went. The fact is that plans were being worked on, revised, reviewed, discussed and submitted.
Today, the Church announced that it was forming the new Mision Argentina Posadas. It will be comprised of the Province of Misiones, the towns of Ituzaingo, Virasoro and Santo Tome (in Corrientes) and parts of Paraguay. It will start operating on July 1st, 2013!

Congratulations to all of the missionaries, members and leaders who over the years built the foundation for there to be 2 missions in this great part of Argentina. It will be exciting to see where this all leads in the upcoming years. But for now...there is a lot of work to do to get things ready for July 1st!
