September Transfer Day

Friday, September 13th, the new missionaries met at the mission home before the transfer meeting. Then we went to the chapel where the new missionaries learned who their companions/Trainers would be for the next 12 weeks. 
 The new sisters and trainers had an opportunity to visit at the mission home before the transfer meeting. In this picture, they did not yet know their companions.
