I finished up at the MTC today. We came up with all kinds of scenarios to test me in every aspect of the office. I know that I’m over housing and phones but I trained for vehicles, general secretary and travel as well since we had so much time. We role-played contacting and inviting people to let us come and teach a lesson about Christ. We bore our testimonies. I met one more teacher today, Brother Barham from Sandy, Utah. He was also a great teacher and he spent the entire day with me today.
Final things I did was go pay my bill for the cafeteria and check-out at the front desk. I stopped and said good-bye to a few new friends that were finishing up their last classes for visitors center and Mormon Trail. Sister Cole and I talked about how we will both be equal distance away from our grandchildren for the next 18 months and together we can do this. Elder Cole gave me a list of friends that are in Scotland and what to say to each of them when I meet them.
On the way out I was walking down a hall to head out the door and I noticed a door ajar with a man sitting inside. I happened to glance at the name plate on the door and it was President Dan Mehr. He was my bishop when I was in 26th Ward. I also had no idea that he was a District President at the MTC so I knocked and we had a nice visit.
Finishing up my office classes two days early is a blessing. I now have two days during my grandkids Spring Break to enjoy them. I have lots of errands to do in the morning but then we are heading to the Aquarium and then to This is the Place Monument on Thursday. Tender mercies…
