Learning to be an AP

Eric with Elders Sofele and Gubler

Elder Solfele finished his mission as an Assistant to the President (from now on short titled "AP"). When he left, Eric was called to fill his position and be a companion with Elder Gubler. This is Eric's 6th transfer and Elder Gubler's 4th transfer as an AP. Eric can learn so much from him and Elder Gubler is very kind.

Eric wrote home that he was surprised, excited and humbled to have the opportunity to serve as an AP. As one of his duties, he will travel to other parts of the Mission by air. Eric loves to travel and this is a rare and precious opportunity to see the Mission that he would not have otherwise had. He has served 17 months on Guam, and now he will get to see other islands and interact with different cultures.  Eric doesn't stay at the Mission home, but at an apartment close by. He was  also super happy to have a washing machine where he is now staying. BONUS.
