We have a new Mission President!
They leave behind a great legacy of service and sacrifice. He was the right man, at the right time and in the right place. That can be said of all mission presidents -- including the new one.
We will have many cherished memories of their service here and of our opportunity to share some of it with them. They have touched many lives and will be missed.
The new mission president and his wife (President and Sister Mecham) arrived on June 29th. Yes, that time is a bit unusual, as far as we know. Most commonly changes in mission presidents takes place on July 1st.
We are thrilled to welcome the Mechams and have already witnessed the Spirit strengthen and mold them as they begin their service here. We already can see the wonderful leadership they will, in their turn, provide here.
We will only have two months to get to know them and work with them before it becomes our turn to leave. That brings an interesting mix of feelings.
