New Missionaries arrive on Monday.
After a three hour flight, they have ridden to Chicago on a 45 minute train ride -
handing out Books of Mormon & Pass-Along Cards.
They are tired and hungry. Most awoke at 2-3 am this morning at the MTC.
Two of the new missionaries.
For dinner, they eat Deep Dish Chicago Pizza at the Mission Home.
Lots of beautiful Sisters
and lots of great Elders.
After dinner, the missionaries talk to a non-member
(in the corner next to the President's Wife)
to get a feel for what some investigators might ask.
Then to long awaited BED.
Next day - more training.
In this picture, they are setting up their new IPads.
We are a mission that does On-line Proselyting.
Soon to transfer meeting where they will
meet new companions.
Then more training - then
OUT TO THEIR AREAS THEY GO.
LATER THAT NIGHT - - - - - -
IT IS TIME FOR SOME SAD FAREWELLS!
These returning missionaries are waiting for dinner, testimony meeting, counsel from the President, President interviews and President blessings. Then they will really get to sleep until their Wednesday morning plane trip home.
The returning missionaries are treated to a dinner the night before they leave,
featuring everyone's favorite !
(Thanks to Sister Woodbury)
The boys chow down, after the women get their food.
Can't believe they are all leaving.
WE ARE LOOSING 24 WONDERFUL MISSIONARIES.
HARD STUFF !!!
We are so grateful we can watch what happens to our missionaries as they go home, go back to school, start dating, getting married, and start their careers - all on facebook.
