Lunch and an Afternoon Out with the Local Missionaries

2018-1-2 New Group Arrives (32)As the missionaries waited for lunch, they filled out their arrival forms and wrote letters home.  I also took their transfer board photos and photos with us to email to their parents, this first day.2018-1-2 New Group Arrives (33)2018-1-2 New Group Arrives (34)Then the local missionaries who will help us today began to arrive.  These good missionaries will be their very first companions, but just for a few hours. 2018-1-2 New Group Arrives (35)2018-1-2 New Group Arrives (36)Elder Taylor’s parents dropped him off and made our group complete!2018-1-2 New Group Arrives (37)2018-1-2 New Group Arrives (38)2018-1-2 New Group Arrives (39)2018-1-2 New Group Arrives (40)We had a great lunch–chicken vegetable soup, bread sticks, cheese and crackers, and fruit with cookies for dessert.

We are tired, but we are happy here.2018-1-2 New Group Evening (3)

    We are so thankful that our son (Elder Perdue) is serving in the Yakima Mission with such a loving President and First Lady! You two are amazing and I am sure, are totally exhausted with all that you do. Thank you again!
