The week of July 10-13, 2012 was spent in mission interviews. President and I, with the terrific assistance of Elder Van De Graaff and Elder Van Overbeek, met with every missionary in the mission again.
Tuesday, July 10, President interviewed every Elder and Sister in Den Haag Zone. Wednesday, July 11, we were in Rotterdam Zone doing the same thing. July 12, a rainy and cold day, we were in Apeldoorn Zone. Every Elder spent time with President Robinson. Friday, July 13, interviewing in Antwerpen Zone was completed. President Robinson interviewed our Great Senior Couple also! It was a real push with transfers coming up in a few weeks. Normally interviews take 10 days--President pushed through in 4 days. I think we will definitely take 10 days next time.
Parents, you have amazing missionaries. As I visited with almost all the Sisters and Elders, I am more convinced of the outstanding quality of the young men and women we have in our mission. The are bright, happy, enthusiastic about the work, faithful, and have strong testimonies of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Book of Mormon and the work they do each day. These are truly the great and noble ones. Their responsibility is to help prepare the world for the Second Coming of Christ. If you could see your son or daughter 'in action' you would be amazed at their maturity, spiritual strength and wisdom. Father in Heaven is truly making them equal to their call--they teach and testify with power and authority. I am humbled and amazed.
