January 2017 arrival.

Definitely late...but well worth the wait!  We were so happy to finally receive Elder Hamp.  Once in awhile, we receive only one missionary in a transfer.  That means they have 6 weeks (for Denmark) in the MTC learning the language "one on one".   They are grouped with another mission's missionaries , and then they travel alone to Denmark.  Most of the time, this is their first trip outside of the U.S.A.  That alone, can be very daunting.  This was the case for Elder Hamp, and one more thing...he wasn't able to make the connection from Paris to Denmark on time.  Therefore, he arrived 6 hours later than planned.   He was exhausted but calm, and ready to serve. His companion, Elder Smith, was as anxious as President and I.  The bond of missionaries is real.  We are so blessed! 

Egg omelettes, bacon , toast and danish pastry for breakfast.

Ready for his first day in the land.  God be with you elder<3

First stop of the day, orientation in the office...and Elder Hamp's first taste of traditional Smorebrod (Danish sandwiches).
