They are here!!!

We are thrilled to welcome our new group of missionaries!
One hour after we said goodbye to our returning home missionaries, we went back into the airport to welcome our 13 new missionaries coming to us from the Mexico City MTC.  We have one Elder joining us later this evening, coming in from the Prove MTC.

We are always anxious to meet these fresh new faces.  The hour of their mission has come and
They Are Here!!!

Just outside the Guadalajara airport doors.

After a quick bite to eat and an explanation of what their
first day in the mission would entail, 
 we took a picture on the steps of the Guadalajara Temple,
holding our most powerful tool in our hands
in the four finger power hold...
The Book of Mormon!

Here are our seasoned missionaries ready to 
spend the day with our new missionaries.

And here are our 13 new missionaries, 
excited and ready for their first day in 
the mission!

They are ready!!

Elder Philips arrived this evening from the Provo MTC.
Our assistants picked him up and he spent his first
evening with them.  We meet tomorrow for our 
first full day of training!
