Our mission has undergone some serious remodeling as far as how we use the technology that we have been so privileged to use the past year. We were one of the beginning missions to get iPads and to use Facebook so we didn't really have too many rules from the bigwigs in the salt lake missionary department. Our mission president came up with a bunch of rules that helped us to stay focused and to learn the best way to use the devices. He had us try things that worked really well and other things that worked not so well haha. Now that the headquarters has had the opportunity to gather enough information they were able to see what changes needed to be made and what rules really needed to be implemented. We had a big conference where all the missionaries came together to talk about how we could best learn and use the iPad's that we had been given. They handed out booklets and talked all about the new rules and what we really should be doing. Luckily for us we were not doing too bad so we didn't need to change a bunch but some minor tweaks were made.
The rest of the week consisted of helping the missionaries set up their new iPads and working with the office staff to get everything all situated. Needless to say we didn't get too much done in our area as far as missionary work goes but this was a necessary thing to do that will bring future blessings.
I will write more of my adventures next week. Talk to you then.
