For the next few weeks we will be making the rounds to all of the missionaries for interviews. We are doing these interviews in their apartments. This morning we were in Santa Maria. As we pulled up to the curb, a man was walking along the side walk with his dog. He was looking for an envelope full of money that he had dropped. Elder Jones and Elder Martinez took off with President Felix to help him. They were not successful in finding the envelope. A contact was made though and the Elders will go back to the man's house later.

Yesterday we had training for the new district leaders and their companions and included the Sister Training Leaders and Zone Leaders. The Assistants helped out with the training and did a fantastic job. We feel the urgency. These missionaries will help in sharing ways of altering our daily activity to hasten the work--to be urgent.
