The Mission begins . . .

Three days after our arrival on June 28th, we received our first new missionary, Hna Aguilar from El Salvador. She went through training and then was assigned her first companion, Hna Tropple. The will serve in the Rio Bueno sector of the La Union Zone. We will always treasure Hna Aguilar as "la primera".

Transfers start for real in August when we send 10 missionaries home and get 9 new ones. Every six weeks there will be transfers. In between we hold zone conferences, training and interviews with each missionary. With a mission 1,400 miles long, this means a lot of travel and many nights in hotels. Below are some pictures from a few our first round of zone conferences.
