On August 17th, Elder Neal L. Anderson was in Columbus, Georgia for a stake conference and authorized President Cottle to gather his missionaries from all over the mission for a special meeting. We drove from Augusta to Columbus (almost 3 hours) and had a very spiritual meeting w/Elder Anderson. He made sure he shook hands w/every missionary. The missionaries loved it and so did we. Then a 3 hour drive back to Augusta. Long day but well worth it.
On the first transfer after moving to the Georgia Macon Mission, the three companionships in our district were split up. Elders Meyer and Pack and Sister Lusk transferred and we received Elders Crist and Phillips and Sister Tevi. Elder Crist is from Las Vegas, Elder Phillips is from Perth, Australia and Sister Tevi is from Texas. Interestingly, her 'little' brother is playing football at the U. of U. and Jeremy and his boys met him at Fan Fest. He told him his parents were serving with his sister in Georgia which surprised him. Sister Tevi says he needs to shave the stuff off his chin.
