New Missionaries arrive in Panama!

As the Assistant to the President one of Elder Meine's jobs is to train the trainers and welcome new missionaries to Panama!  He loves this because he gets to be around some many missionaries from all over the country!

A Week of Training

Selfie with Elder Mann

Elder Meine Spent most of this week training and chasing Elders to and from the airport!  He did manage a few minutes online to send some photos. (I am also grateful that the Mission Presidents wife has a blog, I get many pictures from there as well).  His P-Day this week again consisted of hours spent chasing to and from the airport. He said it was all worth it because the Elder they had to spend extra hours waiting to get through migrations seems like he will be a GREAT missionary!

Busy AP Life

Life as Assistant to President Carmack keeps Elder Meine very busy in Panama!  Here is a sample of his week that he shared:

Monday:  We talked with President about changes and we sent them out to all of the zone leaders
Tuesday:  We picked up the new missionaries at 11:00 AM and 11:00 PM
                  Ran around arranging trips to the far parts of the mission
                  Welcomed the San Blas elders into our house which was a mess
Wednesday:  We threw some new sisters on a bus that left 5 minutes later to the interior
                   Worked on legal stuff with Elder Broadhead so people could go home
                   Had a hotel booking go wrong & spent 1 hour arguing w/some lady and paying too much!
Thutrsday:  3 missionaries almost didn't get past migrations and then one missed their flight because                      they changed gates and he wasn't paying attention so nap time turned into running him                        around  and getting him on another flight
Friday and Saturday:  Worked in the area and had a meeting with President.
Sunday: Had a bunch of investigators come to church!

Happy Missionaries Serve!

Missionaries do so much more than teach the gospel to investigators.  They help bring people BACK to the church, the assist and uplift members, and they serve.  Most importantly the WORK!!  This week in Panama the missionaries did a painting service project.  Even while working they seem to find such joy.

One of Elder Meine's favorite missionaries headed home to undergo knee surgery.  They are hoping to room together at BYU-Idaho!  <3 Elder Taylor

Elder Meine says he is enjoying his service as an AP because of the close contact he gets to have daily with President Carmack.   He is an amazing mission President and spiritual giant.   As his mission begins getting closer to an end we can sense a great change in him, but he is still our goof-ball.
