President Homer entered the Mission Field January of 1987 just a few weeks before 15 of us arrived as he and Sister Homer welcomed their "first" group of missionaries. President and Sister Homer are wonderful people and perhaps one of the reasons Pres. Homer was so successful at being a mission President was his love for the missionaries themselves. Because Pres. was unable to serve his own mission due to being the service, he viewed our callings as special, truly men and women of God sent to spread the word of the Lord. I was deeply impressed with Pres and Sister Homer and the love they had for us as missionaries. What memories exist of toilet papering their home after a wonderful zone conference!!
