Grateful for 22 More!

GRATEFUL...
We said good-bye to 21 missionaries.  What a tender mercy it is to be able to say hello to 22 more! We also had four short-term (six week) missionaries join us for a transfer.  

It is an inspirational experience to see how the hand of the Lord guides the "trainers" that are called and paired with each "trainee."  
The meeting when the trainees and trainers are introduced is one of energy and anticipation.  Everyone is quiet.  The trainers on one side of the chapel the trainees on the other.  The elders and sisters anxiously sneak peaks over to the other side wondering which missionary will be their companion. When the great "reveal" is made by the Assistant it's a beautiful thing.   Eyes meet eyes, spirit touches spirit a warm handshake or a gentle hug are exchanged.  Then the Holy Spirit helps them feel an immediate unity and bond.  It's a wonderful thing to be part of..
Twenty Two!!!
