Just for your information.....

Lots of things are taking place in our mission.
There were no missionaries that went home this transfer...that was a first!

February 6th is our quarterly temple day.  This means that preparation
day will be on Wednesday that week instead of Monday. So there will be
no emails on Monday, February 4th.

We received 24 new missionaries with the group coming
from the MTC this past week. Three of those Elders were the first of the 18 year
olds that are starting to come out. We are excited to see this happen!
We opened 10 new areas with this transfer. Which means 10
new places to live along with all the furnishings!

This upcoming transfer will only be 5 weeks long. Transfers take place on
February 25. This is to allow for the shortened amount of time in the MTC.
On transfer day many of the missionaries do not get a chance to email
home....if you don't get an email on February 25th....don't worry....
your missionary is busy helping the work to move forward in the mission!
Just before the mission was split in July, we had 174 missionaries.
73 of those missionaries were transferred to the new Nevada Reno Mission,
With the boundary changes that occurred at that time there were14 missionaries
transferred from the Nevada Las Vegas Mission to the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission
 which took our numbers to 115.
With this last transfer our numbers are back up to 171 missionaries.
Our complement, which is the number of missionaries that the
Church assigns to a mission, has been 190. Our new complement is 250.
We have had the complement of 18 Sisters. This number will go up to 40.
We will continue to have 28 Spanish speaking Elders.
We are excited for all of this change!
Right after Christmas President Black was contacted by one of the local
news stations about doing a story on Mormon Missionaries in
Las Vegas. The news people and camera men followed a few of the
missionaries around for the better part of a day and also spent an
hour or so with President Black. A few days later the story
appeared on the news.
