I hope you enjoy my postings. My husband and I are serving a mission in Romania and have had some wonderful adventures. Each of us have experiences in our life that make us different from that time forth. These experiences have done that for us.

Romania Bucharest Mission Reunion

Last Friday night,during the beginning of conference weekend, we held our mission reunion at the Wilkinson Center on BYU Campus. What a great night! I'm not sure how many actually came but it was somewhere between 150 to 200 people. Most of the missionaries were from our group but we had a nice showing from President Hanson's mission too. Everyone brought good food and we all ate and talked like crazy! The noise level in the room was pretty dang high! We also finished the missionary quilt and had it on display. There was a lot of surprise as people found their own little square and were able to see at a glance how many people made up our mission over the three years we served as mission president. Half way through the night we held a small program. Three missionaries talked about funny experiences they'd had and then President Ashby auctioned off four of his treasures from the mission to help the temple/education fund. They were (1) a CD slide show of Romania, (2) a gypsy twig broom (3) a new Romanian hymn book and (4) a license plate from Bucharest! (This was a big hit and ended up with a donation of $121.00!) Afterwards Sora and President Ashby said a few words and brought everyone up to date on the status of the mission. President Ashby had letters from President Hanson, President Lundberg, and President Geambascu from Oreada. The evening turned out very well and lots of hugs and stories were passed around. Yes, we have the best mission in the church! :)
