The mail situation is hard. Depending on the day, vast quantities of mail can arrive. It all needs to be picked up from the post office. Most do not have the mail box numbers on. So every item has to be picked up, examined, and the number added. Then in addition there are fifteen to twenty packages arriving from Amazon and elsewhere. It all needs sorting.

Mr. Wesley Warder does an outstanding job. With his black marker pen in hand, he does the work quickly and well. Rarely making a mistake, it is done as fast it can be done. It is not the most interesting work on planet earth, but it is important. There is much of value in this correspondence and in these packages. This is the last important stage of getting these items into the hands of the right people.

If you arrive in the Welcome Center around lunchtime, sometimes early afternoon, you can meet Wesley. Do please just pause and say thank you. The Seminary is full of people who play important tasks that make a vital difference to our lives. For Wesley Warder, the Seminary is grateful.
