Happy New Year! We are so excited to welcome your missionaries to the California San Fernando Mission! Sorry for all the exclamation points, we just truly are excited to have these new missionaries with us.
I’m sure you’ll be hearing from them on Preparation Day (Monday) but I just wanted to send this picture of the group that arrived on Monday. We met all 13 at the Burbank Airport and took them to a nearby stake center. There they had some lunch, did boring paperwork and met with President Hall. They also were met by some of our very best missionaries in the area and spent almost two hours out on the street contacting people and knocking on doors. They reported some amazing experiences in that short amount of time.
Tuesday morning they met their companions and went off to their areas. Their trainers are great missionaries and excited to introduce everyone to California. They will be with this companion for at least 12 weeks (2 transfers) as they complete the training program. The exception to this is our four Elders who are here temporarily while they wait for their visas to go to Mexico. We are so glad they are here.
We love your missionaries and are thrilled with their desires to serve the Lord.
President and Sister Hall
