June Cambios (2) . . .

We received an extra sister this week which was a wonderful surprise. Hna Byam is from Alberta, Canada and was originally called to serve in Argentina. While waiting for her visa she has been serving in Independence, MO. Fortunately for us, her assignment was changed and we received notice last week that she was on her way. Susie and I were in Coyhaique when she arrived yesterday, so our senior couple, the Hamiltons, and our assistants picked her up and gave her some training and orientation. We were able to have her over to the mission home today to meet her and have lunch. She is a wonderful young lady and will be a great missionary. We are very happy for this extra gift for the mission.

Seated above l-r are: Hna Earl from Mt Pleasant, Utah who will be Hna Byam´s trainer, Hna Byam and Hna Contreras from Santiago, Chile who will also be her companion. Hna Contreras has been out for only one cambio and unfortunately, Hna Earl finishes her mission in July. This trio of Hermanas will be powerful.

One of our typical photos of the new missionaries is with their companions showing where they will be serving in the mission. These three sisters are assigned to the Ovejería Ward in the Osorno Stake.

It was great to look on the blog. I am Hermana Byam's mom and she looks very happy to be there. It looks like a beautiful place. I am sure she will love it and be able to influence people for good and teach and testify. Looking forward to hearing from her. Thank you for welcoming her.
