This morning, we received six new missionaries from the Preston MTC...five Elders and one Sister. They come from Texas, Wyoming, Utah, England, and the Netherlands. All of the missionaries...including us...were so excited to meet them.
The mission tradition is to have all of the 'greenies' stand on a wall and tell who they are, where they're from, and what part of the mission they'll be serving in. This is followed by a very loud welcome from one and all.
Assistant Bearnson is going back into the field so he can 'get wet' again....he loves teaching the Gospel. We'll miss him in the office...he's an incredible force of energy. We're very happy to have Elder McOmber as our new Assistant. He's jumped right in ready to go, and brings a wonderful spirit with him.President Ogden with Elder Brower and Elder Bearnson.
He's off to baptize the world!!!
(I don't have a picture of Elder McOmber yet...but I will soon!!!)
Transfer days are amazing...it was so wonderful to see the love between the missionaries. We know that wherever they serve, they'll be doing it with diligence and enthusiasm. We wish all of our greenies good luck...we'll be praying for you!
