On May 12, 2015 we received our mission call.to labor in the Germany Frankfurt Mission. Our primary assignment is to serve as PEF Self-Reliance missionaries in the Europe Area. Our mission call was to begin on January 25, 2016, it has subsequently been changed to January 4, 2016. However, since the need is immediate (the previous couple were to finish their mission on June 10, 2015), we were asked to move to Frankfurt as soon as possible and serve while still employed until Tom retires at the end of the year.
We visited Frankfurt in early June to get to know the Self-Reliance Managers in a seminar and to transition with Elder and Sister Vassel before they left their mission. We have been working with the managers since then from our home in South Jordan. On July 20, we will get on a plane and move to Frankfurt to begin our new adventure in our new home.
We sold our house to our son River and his wife Jamie. We moved out of our house and into our Condominium on May 30, 2015. We had bought the condominium in December of last year and Tom's mother has been living there since January, 2015. We spent 36 hours in our condominium before we left for our first visit to Frankfurt. We have been able to enjoy an additional month in the Condominium before moving to Frankfurt on July 20, 2015. Our condominium is in the Cornerstone Condominiums, just west of the Jordan River Temple.
