Eleven New Anziani!

We received eleven new Anziani!
They are wonderful!
We took the opportunity to sing a hymn we don't usually use:
Hymn # 324

Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things.
Give heart and soul and mind and strength 
To serve the King of Kings.

Rise up, O men of God, 
In one united throng.
Bring in the day of brotherhood
And end the night of wrong.

Rise up, O men of God! 
Tread where His feet have trod.
As brothers of the  Son of Man,
Rise up, O men of God!

They sang it well.
We are a blessed mission to have them.

The sun was shining bright...
but they were shining brighter!

A grand day of firsts.

Thank you for sending your great sons.
We are indeed blessed!
Here are pictures from their arrival and proselyting opportunity
to Duomo di Milano.

First - Our missionaries from the Spain MTC...

Awaiting the next wave of our Utah MTC group...

Finely fed and then put to bed...

Training the next day.
I introduced them to our
Perfect Milano Missionary.
We listed the characteristics of Christ to the right...
their opposites on the left.
To become like our Savior we must
"Forget ourselves and go to work"
The essence of "Sono Secondo"
which means ... I am second.

They are going to be great missionaries!
Thank you for your love and support.
