The next morning we are up early, have a big breakfast and then start training. The assistants and I do a few hours of orientation while President Albright interviews each missionary separately. We practice door approaches with them which can feel very intimidating, but they always do superb. Then it's off to GMU (George Mason University) for some street contacting). These group came back with about 12 contacts-SUPER. We feed them lunch. Pack the cars and head to transfer meeting where they will meet their companions and head off to work.
