One example was last night. Elder Martin received a call regarding details of the arriving missionaries. Each missionary has there own credit card with a limited amount of money deposited monthly for their personal use. The call was a question with one of the access PIN's. After resolving the situation, Sister Martin remembered that two of the new missionaries did not get their FSM (Federated States of Micronesia) entry permits. These were needed to go with their passports so they could enter the other countries in the mission. Since they were leaving early the next morning, we arranged to drive back and meet them at the office. We did and all seemed to go well.
While driving back we talked about why Sister Martin suddenly remembered these important details at the last minute. We agreed that it must have been a spiritual prompting. We both received very little training before taking over at the office and are amazed we can get through each day.
A mighty miracle. A couple of days ago a young woman walked in to our office in the morning. Elder Martin asked if he could help her. She explained that last night she went on mormon.org, and entered a request for the missionaries to contact her. After doing so, she decided she couldn't wait, looked up our address and came straight over in the morning. There was a wonderful warm spirit that was present and not wanting her to wait a moment longer, Elder Martin asked two missionaries, who happened to be in the other room, to come out and answer her questions and give her the greatest message in the world, including points such as: that she has a loving Heavenly Father, the true Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored on the earth, and that true prophets were alive and on the earth now, and much more.
After the 45 min. message, Elder Ramiterre, who was leaving to go home the next day, said she accepted all that was introduced to her and the she committed to be baptized the last week of April.

More fun at the office today. Enjoyed a Zone training meeting with the missionaries in our area. Other activities included: visiting the Bank of Guam to change Zone Leader signature cards, reimbursing a lot of missionaries for airport parking, airport entry and exit fees, vehicle inspections, etc. Sister Martin ordered some missionary name tags in English, Chuukese and Palauan languages.
Tonight, after finishing up at the office we picked up the repaired Corolla from the auto body shop. After about 45 minutes in Guam's rush our traffic, we enjoyed the Banana Festival in Talofofo at Ipan beach.
