New Missionaries....May 14, 2012

Every six weeks we go to the airport to welcome new missionaries.
  We can hardly wait to see the young men and women wearing missionary nametags
come down the escalator.  Usually as we are waiting, other passengers who have been on the same
flight will say to us...."They are coming!"
We were happy to welcome 13 new Elders to the mission this week.
They are excited  and ready to go to work!

    Sister Black, mahalo for the blog. Talking about them is one thing, actually seeing them totally blew me away! What a fine group of young men.
    Much aloha from Elder Prescott's Grammy.<3

  3. Sister Black! Thank you so much for posting pictures! They are the first pictures that we have seen of our son since he left home on March 14th. We appreciate you taking such good care of these wonderful elders! Much love from Elder Jones family in Georgia :)
