Elder and Sister Bean are off again on another mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They will serve 18 months in the Zimbabwe Harare mission as Country Directors for the Church's Humanitarian Program. As with their mission to Uganda, the Beans will be responsible for assessing humanitarian needs, overseeing humanitarian projects such as well-digging, wheelchair distribution, sanitation, etc., and working with local government and non-governmental agencies in improving the living conditions in their region. The mission area covers Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi and the primary language is English, although several native dialects are there as well.
This blog has been established to include postings on their adventures and keep friends and family updated on their experiences. I will try to update it frequently with pictures and e-mails. If you would like to be on the notification list, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll put you on. Please feel free to send this link to others you think may be interested.
Elder and Sister Bean enter the MTC on Saturday the 24th (Pioneer Day in Utah). They will leave the following Friday for a 24+ hour trip to Zimbabwe. We love and pray for them! They will be great!
