APARTMENT INSPECTIONS AGAIN

We always do apartment inspections of the missionary apartments the week before transfers. There are some things I love about this time during the transfer and some things I really don't like at all. I like apartment inspections because I love going to visit some of the missionaries that we don't get to see very often. I like that we can take a few minutes to talk, look at pictures of their families, and share some of their goodies sent from home. (like peeps, or tootsie rolls). Thanks moms, dads, and siblings. What I don't like is having to inspect the bathrooms, I have assigned that task to my Companion. I stick with the kitchens and the bedrooms.

We call the missionaries a few days before we come so they have time to clean. Most of the missionaries do a pretty good job cleaning before we come. Elders Howard and Eckersley had an appointment at an Institute talking to students about the church this morning before our visit so they "didn't have time to straighten up" before we came. However, overall their apartment didn't look bad just a little cluttered. I have to give Elders Green and McKinney cudos for washing their sheets. We (the adult couples) were beginning to worry that the younger missionaries weren't taking the time to do this. Well, at least now we know that some missionaries do.

I know....................................gross huh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well we are working on hygiene around here in the Donetsk Mission.

Your missionaries are in good hands with Sisters Fry and Salamonson in Donetsk and the Mead's and the Crittendon's in Kharkiv. I mentioned before that most of the missionaries "pick things up" well but they aren't so good at scrubbing. I did see one apartment that was really clean and that was Elders Summerhays and Cullen. Way to go guys.
