After the Tears... Come the Cheers!

We said our goodbyes which takes a little piece of my heart every time...

But then ...
Yes, our new group arrived.
There are 14 of them from all parts of
Chile, Utah, California, Texas, Peru, Tennessee, & Bolivia

This is a fantastic group.

Elder McGrath on the left, has been called as an Assistant and is training
in the office with Elder Nichols and Elder Chacaltana

After our new ones arrived we took them to the hotel for some dinner and a good night of sleep.

This morning bright and early we started at the Temple Site
for the beginning of a mission dedicated
to teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ
 and helping individuals and families
set goals to go to the Temple.

Then we bowed in prayer...
devoting our time and talents to the work of the Lord.
Every day we receive way more than we give.
We can never come close to repaying our Heavenly Father.

Then to the office for some training...

Elder Márquez is the best Secretary of Suministros

Elder Barinas has the missionaries take turns on the computers to email home
about their safe arrival and their new assignments.
This is Elder Brian from Kaysville, Utah

They are also taking turns having interviews with the President.
This is Elder Mamani born in Peru but his family is now living in Chile.

We are counting our blessings every single time we receive the best missionaries ever!

And Below is Elder Chacaltana, President Turk´s Assistant
and today is his birthday.

We Love you Elder!
