We have a new appreciation for the training and the resources available to help people, whether they are church members or not, find employment that fits their skills. The Church as one of the largest job databases in the country, and is constantly working with employers to post their job openings. We're also impressed with the seniors that have accepted a call to serve a mission. We love to hear their stories of why they have chosen to serve. They are all great people.
For those of you who are still wondering if we are "really" going to India, stay tuned. There are efforts afoot to see what the holdup is, but as they say, things move slowly in India. The legal counsel in India secured by the Church is attempting to contact the Houston Indian Consolate, but due to time zone differences, it may take some time. We currently have no departure date. We're keeping ourselves busy attending the temple, studying, (attempting) to memorize some key scriptures (watch out early morning seminary students, we have our own set of scripure mastery cards), and looking for opportunities to volunteer.
