We attended our District Meeting today, September 9, 10:30 a.m. at the chapel in Vinton, Virginia.
After the meeting Sister Chapman took this picture of all the male members of the District. (She declined to be photographed).
Back row, l to r:
Elder Pirir (pronounced Pareer, originally from Guatamala, his family now lives in Utah); Elder Boling of San Diego in the dark glasses; our District Leader Elder Fullmer of Rexburg, Idaho.
Front row, l to r:
Elder Hegland of Salt Lake City, Utah; Elder Shill of Plano, Texas, (Elder Shill is our former District Leader and grandson of our former Seminary colleague, Wynn Call); myself, Elder Chapman; and Elder Hart of Payson, Utah.
We love these young, hard working missionaries!

During the recent Roanoke Virginia Zone Conference, September 2, they had the missionary companionships pair off as part of a practice session, role playing approaches and meetings with investigators and new contacts.

Here we see our new District Leader, Elder Fullmer of Rexburg, Idaho and his companion Elder Hart (Payson, UT) practicing their testifying skills.

Elder Fullmer replaced Elder Wright here in Bedford at the Transfer that occurred the week prior to Zone Conference. He is an excellent Elder.
