Our favorite day is receiving new Missionaries. They bring such an excitement with them! 7 New Elders today, the first group of this New Year 2013!
We love these new Elders!
These are the Brazilian ladies who prepare a feast for our New Missionaries. The day begins at 6:30 am. I meet them both at the Grocery store to purchase the food. We bring it back to the Mission Home and these two create the most beautiful a delicious lunch for our new arrivals.
I love these two irma's!
President and I along with the 2 AP's in the North go to the airport to pick up our new Missionaries
We bring them back to the Mission Home where lunch is ready! President tells them where each missionary will be going. I give a short orientation. Then they are off to the Mission Office where President Reber will interview and the New Missionaries go thru more orientation and meet their 1st companions
