Watch: A Glimpse Into What It's Like to Be a Mission President and a Mission President's Wife

Thanks to Mormon Life Hacker for making us aware of this video.

Being in charge of 179 missionaries is no easy task, but it's a task President Welch and his wife were called to take on every day for three years. 

In a Facebook Live event, President and Sister Welch shared the joys and challenges of their calling to all the missionaries in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission. 

Like when a record-breaking 31 missionaries arrived on the same day.

"The challenge was, here in the mission home, being able to feed them that night, interview them quickly, but also, we had them all stay here, so finding accommodations for 31 missionaries was a bit of challenge," President Welch says in the video.

Watch the video below to get a glimpse into the life of a mission president and mission president's wife.
