Welcome, welcome! ' Lift up your heart and rejoice, for the hour of your mission has come...'
Here we are outside the doors of the
Guadalajara airport, ready to take
a airport van to the church by the Temple.
A welcome by President Clayton and I,
and a quick bite to eat.
And they are companion-ed with these terrific
missionaries for the day!
Here they are, holding their most powerful
message - The Book of Mormon - in the
Four Finger Power Hold!
...and, they are ready to begin their first day in the mission!
One more quick picture on the steps of the Temple!
All day training!
We spent the morning here at the mission home having
breakfast, beginning our training, and
having their initial interview with President Clayton.
We then moved to the chapel by the Temple
to finish training, have them meet their
trainers and to find out where they will be serving.
A quick bite of lunch while getting to
know one another.
..and they are ready to meet their new companions.
They are ready to head out.
