Trainers Meet their New Companions!

2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-10While our new missionaries were gathering their things after breakfast, we sneaked the trainers who came to the door into a back room so they wouldn’t be seen until after the new missionaries were told where they’d be going.  This all feels a lot like Christmas Morning and coming down the stairs to see the tree and the gifts there!

Gathering things and packing bags:2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-11Then we took these new missionaries into President Lewis’s office to reveal the transfer board.  When the doors opened, they tried to find their picture next to a companion.2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-122016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-13It takes a few minutes to find their pictures.2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-142016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-162016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-18When they were all found, we took these four out into the family room, where the trainers were waiting to meet them:2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-20Welcome to your new best friends!2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-212016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-22Elder Hodges will be serving with Elder Sanchez in Wenatchee.2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-24Hermana Petersen will be serving with Hermana Faulk in Moses Lake.2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-25Hermana Tolliver will be serving with Hermana Knight in Ellensburg.2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-26And Hermana Graff will be serving with Hermana Juarez in Royal City.2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-27We spent the rest of the morning in our traditional Trainer & Trainee Training.  It was great to have both companions here right from the get-go.2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-29Opening song is our Mission Song, Called to Serve, with the additional 2 verses translated from the Spanish Hymnal.2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-302016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-31Here are a few of the things we talk about:2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-322016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-332016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-35For part of this special training, the APs meet with the new missionaries, while President Lewis visits with the Trainers upstairs.2016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-362016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-372016-12-14-orientation-tt-transfers-38
