Mission update - yahoo now we know!!!

We finally found out what kind of mission we will be serving in New York City. We will be living in and directing the Bishops store house in Bronx. The small house has been converted into the Bishop's storehouse. Main floor - store house and small kitchen in the back, upstairs - bedroom, bathroom, small office-sitting area. The couple we are replacing, the Shaffers from Bountiful, are currently home teaching 30 families. They have enjoyed great success. When they first got there, 70 people were coming to church, now there is an average of 150 people every week. Our address there is: Elder & Sister Ellett
2055 Ellis Avenue
Bronx, New York 10462
We have been told that we have about 50 baptisms every month, hence the need to home teach so many families, there are at least 6 different languages in our mission. More information about our fairwell will follow. Malea is helping with invitations. The date is November 11, 2007.
