"Thirty days in the land" training...and the arrival of three elders mid-transfer.

Two days after our return, we were blessed with three more arriving elders.  They arrived mid-transfer.  Here are Elders Jensen and Preece.  We will meet Elder Koch, who is from Denmark at the mission home tonight.  He will be  training with us while waiting for his visa to Zimbabwe
Our missionaries who have been in the land for 30 days have arrived  with their trainers for a three day training.  Our newly arrived elders will take part long as they can stay awake:)

A few days later, President spoke at the YSA Golden Days event and we were able to visit with two of our returned missionaries:)  Does life get better than this?
