WEDNESDAY NIGHT MEETING
WITH THE PRESIDENT AND MATRON
GOOD-BYE TO VELI ja SISAR JAKKÖ
Every Wednesday evening, the temple missionaries have our weekly meeting with President ja Sisar Haikkla. This week we had a little 'add-on'. The Jakkö are leaving the asuntola to go back to their home in Lappenranta on April 14th. They wanted to have a little 'dinner' for everyone to thank us for letting them work with us and stay here in the asuntola. So, after our 'formal' meeting with the President and Matron, the evening was turned over to the Jakkö. It was wonderful. Sisar Jakkö prepared a wonderful meal.
The Jakkö have been here in the asuntola with us for about 6 months. They have been wonderful to work with. They are not missionaries but they mostly worked full time in the temple...when especially her work schedule allowed.
After the 'festivities' someone said.....GIRL PICTURE!! So all of us girls lined up for the foto op! Left to right......Sisar Zaretseja (Russia), Sisar Peciuliene (Lithuania), Sisar Jakkö, Sisar Johnson (St. George), Sisar Groberg (Idaho), Sisar Mäkinen (Rauma, Finland), my and Sisar Haikkola (temple Matron).
Then someone said BOY PICTURE.....so they all lined up! L to R: Veli Peciulius (Lithuania), Veli Haikkola (Temple President), Veli Johnson (St. George), Veli Jakkä, Veli Zaretski (Russia), Veli Groberg (Idaho, Veli Mäkinen (Rauma, Finland) and Veli Allgaier
It was a fun evening. The Michie's will be joining us in 2 weeks! It will be fun to have them here. They will also be Temple Missionaries....from Salt Lake City. Because they are coming, the Jakkö have to move out. The Mäkinen's will be moving downstairs so the Michie's can be upstairs. Don't worry......we know what is going on and all will be well!! :-)
