New Missionaries Arrive August 27, 2014

     Around 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 our new batch of missionaries arrived. It was so nice to know they were on their way, that they didn't have to come in a typhoon, and that we would be able to meet them at the bus. There were ten missionaries. One of the arriving elders had been postponed because of illness so we actually met him at the Provo MTC in June. They are a great group of missionaries and we really enjoyed the interviews, visits, orientation, and the testimony meeting. The Assistants and Office Elders took them to a lake area in San Pablo where they learned how to OYM (Open Your Mouth) and actually placed Books of Mormons. They all seemed to really enjoy the experience. The five from the Provo MTC had actually arrived in Manila early Saturday morning and spent time in the Manila MTC with the rest of the group and went tracting with the Quezon City missionaries. We hadn't been told they were sent earlier, but because of the new immigration laws they arrived early to get their finger printing done, etc. It was actually nice because they had already adjusted somewhat to the time change. On Thursday morning after the testimony meeting we took them over to the Alaminos Chapel for them to meet their trainers and have training on "The First 12 Weeks". After the training they had lunch and headed to different parts of the mission to start their service.
