New Missionaries in December

      After the missionaries arrive at the airport we bring them to the Mission Office and the Villahermosa Stake Center, it is next to the Office.  We use the Stake Center for all our missionary meetings and trainings. We feed them, and then President interviews each missionary, while he interviews them the Assistants, Office Elders and I do an orientation to the Mission and the area. Then we introduce them to their companions and feed them again!  This day was a little more difficult, because over the weekend the power had gone out in the Office and then the Stake Center.  That means - no air conditioning and no lights, we cobbled together some laptops so the missionaries could email their parents, but it was a interesting day and the new missionaries got to feel the full force of the Villahermosa heat.  Welcome to southern Mexico!!  Everyone did fine and got to appreciate what it meant to have air conditioning every now and then.
The new missionaries meet their companions!!
