 Since everyone hasn't been able to come to the mission home at some point in your mission we wanted to show you what it looks like. This is the largest missionary room with 7 beds and a bathroom.
 Wall to wall beds and extra pads so up to about 24 can fit in the mission home if needed.
 Two more beds.
 Looking into the backyard.
 We have a wonderful forest full of birds.

 General Authority Room.
It seems a little empty, but not for long.
Remember when Elder Oaks came to visit? He had a few things to say about his experience in the Pacific.
