Oct. 11, 2011 Tuesday, 2nd day of inspections. We visited the McLean Zone this day. It was delightful. It is really so much fun to go to the missionary residences and feel their spirit and see how much effort "the majority" of them put into this event.

1st stop today was with a foursome of Elders. Elders Stoker, Campbell, Coleman, Hanna and President on the sectional couch. Pretty nice place.
These are lucky bike elders. They get to stay in shape. We have these "bike mats" to keep the carpets clean. Good job- these elders have them where they belong.
2nd Stop- An apartment with 4 elders again. Elders Ness, Rios, Cheung, and Hansen with Pres Albright
The outside of the elders apartment. Very nice complex. All our places are nice.

Elders Hansen and Ness at their entrance.
This is one of the buildings that I love. It reminds me of a place in Switzerland. It's a business building in the area.

The 3rd area was in a beautiful neighborhood. I took pictures of some of the homes to show what lovely places are around their apartments.

First Day of Inspections- OAKTON ZONE.
We visited 7 apartments today. And we were pleasantly surprised. The missionaries had put forth a lot of effort and things looked really nice. Our missionaries live in nice apartments here in Virginia and with some great members in their homes.
We give the missionaries a long list of what needs to be done before we arrive and then we check it off when we get there. They get a certificate for a TERRESTIAL, TELESTIAL, or CELESTIAL dwelling.

First stop with Elders Parker and West (Elders Barrett and Mngoma were there on splits and we saw them later in the day at their place) . First stop was great.
Zone Leaders Parker and West sitting at their desks where they spend a lot of time studying.

Each of the outside doors of the apartments have a picture of Christ. We love it.

4th stop. Elders Crockett and Tilleman with President Albright

Now these 2 boys know how to make a bed. You could bounce a dime on them. Great job!
Bikes are kept on mats like this one.

5th stop.
Elders Mngoma and West and Elders Mngoma and Barretts place.
A nice clean kitchen.
6th stop. Elders West and Edgington. 4 Elders live here (Elders Dastrup and Hiatt also)
These elders have candles burning that smelled wonderful and cute Halloween decorations.
Extra points. Nice touch
