Our 9 New Missionaries from the USA have arrived!


We were full of excitement as we drove to the airport for the 3rd time today!  We had made two trips earlier this morning for missionaries that were returning to their homes.  The anticipation was great as we looked forward to meeting these new missionaries.  We knew that it will be only a matter of time before we are just as attached to them as we are the ones that returned to their homes this morning!
 
We love to catch the first glimpse of them through the frosted glass! 

 



 

 
They are tired but they are excited to be here!



 
Learning about the mission

 
 
Getting the Empanadas ready!


 
We are always so grateful when everyone is safely here!

Everyone now has the correct paperwork!

 
We love to celebrate with photos!

 
 
 

 
One last trip to buy Alfajores!

 
Almost every missionary has to make decisions on what to leave behind to get their suitcases to weigh what is allowed on the flight!


Some of the other Hermanas are here to help!

 
It is great to have visits from members or those they have taught.
