The Big Day Has Finally Arrived!!!

Well today marked the start of a new episode in the life of Sister Smart.

We took her to the Preston Missionary Training Centre for 10:00 and by 10:15 it was all over and done with, a very well structured affair, undoubtedly designed so as not to allow emotions to overcome the affair.

There was a few tears but no long lingering drawn out goodbyes, this was definitely aided by the fact that she herself had a very positive approach.

I think they even stagger the scheduled arrival time of each missionary, so that a tight reign must be kept on time so as not to allow any delays to set in and create a 'knock on' effect.

We were a little pushed for time and as we were on our own, there was no one around to take a photo of us all, so you'll just have to make do with one of Sister Smart with me then one of her with her mum.

Janet & I had not fallen out I promise.

I've got to say, I think I am a better photographer than Jamet, or at least I make Janet look better on photos than she makes me look - (possibly I have the easier task).

Just to reiterate all the contact details for her:-

The permanent address for her is:-
Sister Jessica Smart
C/O England London South Mission
West Park Road

But please bare in mind that is is the Mission Office Address and therefore mail will always get to her via this address. but may not be the quickest route, as it will go to the Mission Office then re-distributed to wherever she is currently residing.

For the next two weeks she will be at the Training Centre at Preston, but mail via that above address, after that once she receives her first assignment, I will keep you all informed (via the blog) of the best address to use.

Her permanent email address whilst she is serving is:-

N.B. Her old personal email address will not be monitored during her Mission.

Please also be sensitive to the fact that her personal time will be limited and the whole idea of this blog is to keep you all updated on her progress, so by all means write to her regularly (she will appreciate that), but please don't be offended if any mail/email received by her does not get a personal response

Please note the countdown timer has been adjusted, now counting down to her return...

  1. I think you're right about the photos. The one with you in is straight from 1972
