Many Hands Make Light Work

A "going away" breakfast for
Anziano Da Ponte and Anziano Wilson.
In just a few hours our new missionaries will arrive.
We couldn't do the upcoming task without the help of
all you see in this picture.
Each person has important specific responsibilities that are vital
to receiving, training, legalizing, matching, transporting
and making your new missionary feel 
not just welcomed,but loved.  
Which, indeed, they are.
