Welcoming in our six new missionaries!

What a beautiful day it is here in Guadalajara to welcome our six newest missionaries!  We will be receiving one additional Elder on Wednesday coming in from Argentina now that his visa has finally arrived.

Let us introduce these six new missionaries joining us today.

A quick muffin and juice - taking a break 
outside for a few minutes.

After a short introduction from the assistants,
and handing them their initial materials
for their first day,
here we are on the steps of 
the Guadalajara Temple ...
holding our most powerful message,
The Book of Mormon in our hands...
in the four finger power hold.

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

And here are our six newest missionaries
excited to meet their companions for 
their first day in the mission.

Here they are, ready to head out for 
their first day in the mission. 

We begin our first full day of training tomorrow!
More to come!
