Arrivals July 2017

A few hours after our departing missionaries, we received ten more...
Eleven more with an arrival from Sweden.  I feel this is so inspired since our focus turns to them.  We love these anxious and enthusiastic missionaries. They energize us with their willingness to learn and teach.  Missions are just the best place to be!
Lunch at a nearby bakery in the airport.  YUM!
After a visit to the mission office, they arrive at 5P for a traditional Danish meal of pork roast, meatballs, two kinds of potatoes, red cabbage and layer cake.  It's pretty delicious and they agree.
We do our best to keep them awake.  We have a short spiritual thought, short testimonies and prayer before we wake them up with... pong!  These missionaries arrive with skills:-)

We took some pretty great "hair" shots   as they turn between each return.

They finally get to bed around 9P and wake up early for training.
Traditional breakfast of burritos

Always exciting to meet and greet.
