New mission calls and the Newhall 1 missionary newsletter
Today was a good day in the Newhall First Ward. We found out that two young men received their mission calls. Kyle Hill received his call to Rome and will report to the MTC March 16, 2011. This should be an exciting time to be in Rome, especially after President Monson announced the construction of a new temple at the October 2008 General Conference. Groundbreaking happened on October 23, 2010, and the temple is scheduled to open in 2013. It will be the twelfth temple in Europe and the first in Italy.
We also found out that Javan Hatch received his call to Auckland, New Zealand. He reports to the MTC on February 16, 2011. The church has a temple in Hamilton, a couple of hours south of Auckland. It was the eleventh temple built by the church. And New Zealand is where the Lord of the Rings movies were shot and where the Hobbit is scheduled to be shot. Maybe he can land a cameo.
Today the ward missionary newsletter was distributed, with excerpts from recent letters from all our ward missionaries, including Elliot. Here's a copy.
