Seven New Missionaries

Tuesday, October 23, 2012 we received a wonderful group of Elders and one Sister from the MTC in Provo, Utah.  We have been hearing that this group of missionaries is exceptional.  We now know for ourselves this is true.

 Front row: Elder Eastmond, Elder Ipson, Elder Lind, Sister Robinson, 
Sister Rigdon  Back row:  Elder Pitts, Elder Suckow, Elder Swingle, 
President Robinson

We took them back to the Mission Office for paper work, orientation and interviews with the President. to the pannenkoeken huis.  This is their first real Dutch meal!

 Elder and Sister Pankratz

After all the legality issues were taken care of it was off to the Mission Home for a well needed nap.  After a nap and dinner, we had a short welcome and testimony meeting.  Finally, they opened their letters telling them were they would serve and who their new companions and trainers were going to be.

Our great new missionaries.  They are well prepared from the MTC and they all come with strong and moving testimonies of Jesus Christ and his restored Gospel.  

 We couldn't be happier!  What a group!

 Elder Ipson will be serving with Elder Van de Graaff who has been serving as an AP to President Robinson.  He is now leaving to train Elder Ipson and the two of them will open Vlissingen.  Congratulations.
