The news is not that I just signed up for Medicare, or that I have to have a root canal:
The BIG news is that we have just received official notice of the call of Elder y Hermana Poulsen to the Peru Cusco Mission! We are overjoyed to learn that Presidente Harbertson has assigned them to Historia Familiar.!! They will arrive just a few days after we leave in January. We have met them on Skype, and have started a series of email info dumps that will get them familiar with the work they will be doing. With this information, they should be able to avoid the numerous blunders and mis-steps that we made while getting started, and have a steep learning curve.
Elder Poulsen is a fluent Spanish speaker, and Hermana P is learning very quickly. Coincidentally, the world seems a little smaller when we learned that Elder Poulsen and our Elder Hasler were companions in Italy about 40 years ago! So they will immediately have friends and mentors here.
We will make sure their blog address is posted, so you can follow their service and adventures here in Peru.
