Today we received an email letter from the President Nattress, the Mission President.
Your wonderful missionary arrived here in Gilbert Arizona on Monday morning – and we love them already! We even received 6 missionaries headed to Rio de Janeiro Brazil, who are waiting for their VISAS to clear. We are so happy they will be part of our mission, even for a short time.
They all arrived excited and a bit nervous and tired. Their day began early morning at the MTC, so they had an early start and were worn out by afternoon for sure. We fed them, trained them, loved them, introduced them to their bicycles, and they were all looking forward to going to bed. They were housed in a host member’s home on Monday evening; then Tuesday they received more training, met their new companions, and headed to their assigned areas. We have attached a photo of their smiling faces taken Monday morning.
We are happy to have each one of them, and we will do all we can to support and encourage them while they are here. Thank you for sharing your missionary with us. Contact us anytime if you have any questions.
