We didn’t receive a letter from Craig this morning, but he mentioned last week that he would be at zone conference today, so we will probably hear from him tomorrow. However, we did receive the following e-mail from the mission president this morning.

To the Family of Anziano Jones ,
We are pleased to inform you that Elder Jones has been called as a District Leader here in the Italy Rome Mission. It is a position of trust and an opportunity to serve. As a District Leader he will be responsible for all of the missionaries in his district. He will meet with and teach them weekly in a district meeting. He will also encourage them in their own areas, supervise their service, and be a mentor to them. He will interview all baptismal candidates and supervise the baptismal services.
Elder Jones has been called to this new assignment based upon his outstanding service and dedication as a missionary.
Sister Waddoups and I thank you for your faith and prayers on behalf of our mission and for all you have done to prepare such an outstanding missionary.
Michael G. Waddoups

I found this picture of Craig’s new companion, Anziano Blair, on Sister Waddoups’ blog. It was taken back in May when Anziano Blair first arrived in Italy. The building under construction behind him is the Rome Temple.
