Our Assignment

President and Sister Trayner were very excited to have us in the mission at last.  After one day to unpack and shop we began our adventure as housing coordinators for the mission.  There are about 80 apartments for which we are responsible.  We also make sure the missionaries have furnishings and household items that they need.  Because there had not been anyone specifically assigned to oversee housing for some time, we had a big job ahead of us.  The first couple of weeks we shopped til we dropped!  We had to catch up on a lot of needed supplies and household items for the apartments.  We spent a lot of time at Walmart, Target, and Lowe's.  Sister Choules enjoyed this much more that Elder Choules.  Some of the items we purchased were:  microwave ovens, blenders, toasters, vacuums, mops & brooms, toilet brushes, bathmats, front door mats, etc.
After making our purchases, we then had to organize and label the items by apartment and zones.  We had to do this in a weeks time so we could get the items to the zone leaders at the Zone Leaders Council which was on Feb 1, 2012.  The zone leaders then were able to distribute the items to the apartments.  Hurray, we did it!
