We had just enough time to drop off Emily's stuff before they closed yesterday. The mission home is in Scottsdale, AZ and so we enjoyed a nice drive together. The front desk was covered in packages and addressed to all the missionaries. It was really fun to meet some of the couples serving in the mission office.
One of the sisters went and found Sister Ellsworth and said she wanted to meet me. Sister Ellsworth is a kind woman and is very excited to meet and serve with Emily. All of the ladies in the office had been practicing how to say Sister Kranendonk's name. They wanted me to pronounce Kranendonk, just to be sure they were saying it correctly and could properly welcome her. Needless to say, they are ready for her.
Here is some of the information I found about Emily's mission president and his wife:
|R. Spence and Laurie Ellsworth|
Sister Ellsworth is a former stake Relief Society president, ward Young Women president, ward Relief Society and Primary teacher and institute teacher. Born in Seattle, Wash., to Ezra Taft Benson Jr. and Mary Beth Wheeler Benson.
I think they are all ready for Sister Kranendonk. I am so excited for her to come!
