President going through the final transfers with our 3 assistants
Here are our 8 new missionaries arriving at the airport from the Mexico City MTC.
One Elder, (Elder Perez is in front, and he is ready to get going), is returning from having foot surgery. Elder Manzo took him to meet his new companion and he went right into the field.
The other 7 began their full day of new missionary training with us.
Later that afternoon, we picked up our one American Elder, Elder Medina
coming from the Provo MCT
We took him to the office to meet his companion and he spend the evening there. We completed his new missionary training with his companion at our home the next day.
Here they come!
they are wonderful!
We brought them to the mission home and had a bite to eat and President began his interview with each one. We did a quick English assessment, and I talked with them about their apartments, their daily schedule, their health, and their standard of conduct and appearance.
They were up at 2 am and were so tired, we gave them a few minutes, and they were out!
We came to the church and there, ready and prepared were their trainers.
We had a bit more training together before we introduced them to who their companions would be and what area they would begin their service in.
I love Elder McGregor our financial secretary who was so organized and ready to train our new missionaries regarding their personal finances.
Here are our trainers... (they will be fabulous!)
and here are the (anxious to find out who their first companion will be), new missionaries
After a few minutes of getting to know one another, we had lunch
