And now we welcome the newest additions to the greatest mission on earth!!


Our new missionaries arrived Wednesday. They are all excited to be in the best mission in the world, the OEM!!!

We brought them to the mission home where they met the senior missionaries that work in our mission office. Then, we fed them lunch. After lunch and training it was time for dinner! As a tradition, we send our new missionaries out with seasoned missionaries to go to their appointments or whatever they have planned. Sometimes it's tracting. When they return we hear from each new missionary what they did. It is amazing how many give out a Book of Mormon or a pass-along card the first day! Then we send these tired missionaries to bed. The Sisters stayed at the mission home and the Elders stayed with the Assistants.
What an exciting day!
