This morning we had our Zone Conference where President Cottle interviewed each of the missionaries in the Zone. Elder and Sister Gowans had to leave at 1030 to attend the graduation ceremony of Brother Noah Nakaya. We had not been interviewed yet. After the graduation, we drove back to the church and there found President and Sister Cottle, Elder and Sister Meacham, the Zone leaders and the President's Assistants all ready to go to lunch together. We joined in and all drove to subway where we enjoyed one of their $5.00 footlongs. It cost $44.00 to feed 10 people, not to bad. After lunch, we drove back to the church and had our interview with the President. When he first arrived, we offered him our time, at his convenience to educate him on the role of a Military Relations Missionary. I don't know if he remembers our offer or not, but today he asked many questions and we were happy to answer.

This evening we went out to visit the Tiede family. We had never met them; he was deployed when we first arrived and had forgotten that we had never been out to get acquainted.  We had a very nice visit with them and left with them a thought out of Alma 5:16

From there we dropped into see Sister Fordham; her husband's unit returns Friday, but unfortunately he will not be with them; he may be delayed a month due to operational needs. We wanted to get the straight story from her and so she was able to fill us in on what she knew, which wasn't much, of course.
Noah Nakaya, just finished Basic Officer Leadership Course. He is from the Omaha area.
President and Sister Cottle; they are from Logan, UT
