Today we had an email from Elder and Sister Porcaro whom we will be replacing. He was so enthusiastic.
"You will absolutely LOVE your mission assignment. You will have most of what you do right here in the Student Center, the Institute, and the University Ward. And that is a wonderful assignment. You can do it just by being you, and being a grandma and grandpa to students that are for the most part far from home and need you as an adult they can look up to.
Your teaching assignment, at this time , will be Mission Preparation and The Gospel and the Productive Life, along with other Institute assignments. However, we saw a change in assigned classes and you will have input later on for courses you would like to teach. Your classes will be small, from 2 to 12 students.
We have a long list of things we will leave for you or you can borrow from the Institute kitchen so you will not have to overload your vehicle.
We will get back with you and hopefully meet with you before you enter the MTC.
I do remember your daughter Erin when I was at Timpview between 1980 and 1990. Tell her hello for me.
Best from Beautiful Downtown East Lansing, The best mission ever!!!
Elder and Sister Porcaro"
We are getting excited.
