We met the missionaries at the bus stop in Urdaneta
We brought the luggage to the mission office, then walked next door to the mission home
Lunch time....take out from KFC
The new missionaries were able to work with missionaries in Urdaneta Zone.
They loved it! Then they all met for dinner at....you guessed it--KFC.
None seemed to mind eating KFC food again because they were pretty tired.
After the elders and sisters had a good night's rest in missionary apartments,
they returned to the mission home for an orientation.
Time for lunch....no KFC today :)
President Monahan finished interviewing the rest of the missionaries after lunch.
They enjoyed another opportunity to go on appointments with companions in the Urdaneta Zone.
