The temperature in Nashville is still in the high 70s most days, even though it has been raining. The other day we actually had a great hail storm. I am so glad I have a big window in my office (even though it is behind me) to watch the weather. Elder Dunn watches all the supplies in the storeroom....but he does a great job of that. Actually, he gets out of the office alot more than I do. He is still picking up new cars. He got another this last week, and tomorrow he goes again to pick one up. He is alot happier about it when it isn't a Toyota Corolla. When he gets back from driving it to the office we have to unfold him to help him stand.
Last Monday we (the mission) received 14 new missionaries (2 from the Mission Training Center in Mexico, 2 who came from their home, and 10 from the Provo Utah Training Center. The 2 who came from home are called 2 transfer missionaries. That means they are short-term. All the new missionaries (well most) look very nervous and some a little scared. That doesn't last long. On Tuesday there is a big transfer meeting where all the missionaries who are being moved to different areas come into Nashville to meet up with their new companions. It is really a fun time. There were also
(about 1 1/2 hour drive). It was rainy and alot cooler.....enough that I did have to put on my white fleese lined jacket (but if you know me, you know that it didn't have to be much cooler for me to do that). It was 66 degrees. The locals there call this town Hoptown. I don't know why. We went just north of there to find this old Mormon Church and Cemetery. Here is the description of it from LDS.org. "James Wells Robins did not want to go on a mission, but his mother intervened and arranged for him to receive a mission call when he returned home from herding cattle.
