President Lovell and I just got home after being gone for a week. We have been with the missionaries throughout much of the mission for Zone Conferences. It has been wonderful to be with these great missionaries!
We are excited to share some news with you! On Wednesday evening President Lovell received an e-mail telling us about the new Argentina Comodoro Rivadavia Mission that will be formed starting July 1, 2013! The Argentina Neuquén Mission will be divided! We knew that it was a possibility that this could happen but we had not heard anything for certain about it until this last Wednesday evening.
We were instructed to let the missionaries know before tomorrow when the Church News would come out. The Assistants called the Zone Leaders last night and they called all the missionaries this morning to let them know. We were with the Zapala Zone today for Zone Conference so we were able to share it with them ourselves! Can I just tell you...we have wonderful missionaries! They had a few questions but they were excited!
Here are the details that we know:
The new mission president will be Mark F. Rogers.
Argentina Comodoro Rivadavia Mission will include the following:
