Next we divide. I take the sisters and talk about health issues while President starts interviewing the elders. The elders waiting for their interviews also meet with the assistants to go over language goals. All Spanish speaking natives are expected to learn English while they are here, so we like to get them started on that right off.

Meanwhile--President heads back to the airport to pick up the missionaries coming from Provo. This time there were only two of them. They then came to the house for an early dinner and some training. They went to work in the evening and we finished their training the following day in the office.
The two newest ones are the two in the middle. The other two arrived in the morning from Mexico. We kept them together for training so we could do their training in English since they are all from the U.S. (we found they do better if they understand what we are saying.:-)
Next post will be all the new missionaries with their companions!!
