Dear Jackson family,
Sister Jackson gave me all you email address and asked that I include all of you in the email.
Today has been a very busy day for the newly arrived missionaries, starting with breakfast at the mission home. Then they were taken to the place where the dedicatory prayer was offered. They read the prayer together as a group. They discussed the prayer and was instructed to read it again on their own, meditate about it, then pray about it and their mission. This is a very spiritual experience for them. The spirit is so strong that they come to love Albania and the people and are excited about their missions and the work that they will be able to do here. They feel the Savior’s love for this country and for its people.
Afterwards it is back to the mission office for training, lunch, and to see who their new companion/trainer will be. Sister Jackson’s companion is Sister Coleman and they will be serving in Elbasan, Albania.
Pictures were taken throughout the day we would like to share some of them with you. Enjoy! Too many pictures for 1 email. More coming.
Thank you for sharing her with us. She is absolutely delightful. President Weidmann cares deeply for his missionaries and takes very good care of them. Every morning he sends them an uplifting text. They know they can call him anytime they want or need to; even if it is just to talk. Sister Weidmann is there by his side and making sure they have what they need and are happy. There is a senior couple there, the Orton’s who also look after the missionaries in Elbasan.
