Fabulous Four and Five

June 26, 2014, was a busy day for the Italy Milan Mission.  The fabulous four arriving missionaries came one day late.  Thus, the fabulous five departing missionaries came to the mission office on the same day.  We ate dinner together on Thursday, the 26th, after some orientation with the arrivals and interviews with those departing.  We then sent those arriving off to get some much needed sleep and the missionaries who were leaving shared their testimonies of the Doctrine of Christ.  

Here they come!

On Friday, June 27, 2014, the five departing missionaries flew out and the four new missionaries met their trainers.  It was a fun day in the office with the intimate group of four new missionaries and four new trainers.  

Hugs all around

New missionary training was held on July 3, 2014.  Again, training was held at the mission office and the missionaries were much more wide awake.  They had already settled well into the schedule of missionary life.  We look forward to a great eighteen months to two years with our fabulous four.
