Introducing 11 New Missionaries!


Baptisms first!

Elders Peters and Shrewsbury in Utrera

Hermanas Martin and Gibson in Murcia

Elder Hales and Wright in Alicante

 What a supportive Ward!
Elders Keller and Thornley in Sevilla

Elders Hafen and Rojas in Jaen.  They are going to need a bigger building in Jaen...

A few odds and ends:

Hermana Massaro's cinnamon rolls.  Mmmmmm...

A cosecha in Murcia, and
Elder Rodriguez loves dogs.  Did you know that?  I didn't.

Introducing our 11 new missionaries who arrived on 3 October 2012:

Here we go.  We are all in this together.  In every way!

The hymn before assignments...everyone is so excited!!

Hermana Cano from (believe it or not...) Jerez!  She will be serving with Hermana Torres in Granada.  Welcome!  (And Elder Hunt)

Elder Adams from the U.K. will be serving with Elder Hafen in Jaen. 

Elder Chumbipuma will serve with Elder Bird in Almeria.  Welcome!  (Hi Elder Hunt)

Elder Leon is serving with Elder Hooper in Cordoba.  Bienvenidos!  (Hola Elder Hunt)

Elder Lucero is serving in Malaga with Elder Forrest.  (Elder Hunt)

Elder Merchan is serving with Elder Hales in Cartagena.  (Elder Hunt's smile is getting a little fake now.)

On the right, Elder Pardo will serve in Alcazar de San Juan with Elder Jones.  (Elder Hunt's arm is getting tired.)

Elder Rodriguez will serve with Elder Kirkham in Malaga. Elder Hunt still smiling in the back.

Elder Pena will serve with Elder Gomes in Caceres. (Perservar hasta el fin, Elder Hunt)

Elder Sandelin will serve with Elder Berrett in Puerto de Santa Maria. Elder Hunt no longer smiling.

 Last but not least, Elder Scheible will serve with Elder Gochez in San Lucar.
Justin was so excited he wanted to be a missionary too.

Mmmmm.  Thanks for the help Elder Bird!

The whole group of new missionaries and their companions. 

The future here is so bright we can't even see!

With all these new missionaries, it's a perfect time to go over a few rules. 

Remember, President Deere said you can always find 15 minutes in a day for an ice cream cone.  Enjoy, sisters!

No.  Just no!
Welcome everyone!  We are glad you are with us!  Have a great week everyone!  Love, Hermana Deere
P.S. So long old friends.  We love you and will miss you.  R.I.P.
