Training our new missionaries 6-13-17

Today we have enjoyed a full day of training with our 6 new missionaries!
They have been wonderful, and even though they were tired, and their heads
are no doubt spinning from all the information... they have stayed engaged
with us all day long.  Their attitudes are outstanding!
Each of these new missionaries have come with fervent testimonies and a
earnest desire to serve the Lord.
We are so grateful for each of them and love them already!!!
Here are some pictures of our day together!
We began with a delicious grande pancake breakfast.

President then went to our large mission map
and explained our mission boundaries, our
zones and areas.

We stepped outside before the sun got too hot
to take a quick picture together on the front porch 
of our mission home. 

While President Clayton interviewed each
missionary individually, I went through
*our daily schedule 
*missionary health
*missionary apartments
*language study

The assistants helped our new Spanish speaking 
missionaries set specific goals to learn English
while they are here in the mission.

A quick last picture together at the mission home. 

We came to the Union Stake building by the 
Temple to finish our training.

Standing up for a few minutes to stay alert. :)

Elder Taylor went through mission finances 

Our fabulous office Elders.
They help us with so many details for
each and every meeting we have.
I am so grateful for them!
