December 2013 Arriving Missionaries

The new missionaries came in two groups this time. The first group of 16 arrived from the Manila MTC just in time for lunch. The second group, consisting of 3 sister missionaries from the Provo MTC, arrived in the late afternoon.  All were pretty tired. After dinner the first evening, the sisters were taken to the "Sisters' House" and the elders went to the "Big House," where all were encouraged to go to bed early. 

Welcome, Elders and Sisters!!
