12-17-18 New Missionaries Arrive

On Dec. 17, 2018, we welcomed 15 new missionaries into our mission.  We were excited to greet these wonderful elders and sisters.  14 of the 15 missionaries came together from the Provo MTC with Elder Porter coming from the Mexico MTC.  The flight from Provo was delayed for about 1 1/2 hours.  But they all arrived safely and were anxious to get going and share the gospel message.  We had a nice dinner that evening with all of them followed by an introduction to Pres & Sis. Robinson and to the AZ Scottsdale Mission.  We always love the enthusiasm and excitement of new missionaries.  Elder Porter who came from the Mexico MTC had been up since 3 am.  So we were able to get all situated in the apartments across the street and in the mission home and get all in bed by 10pm.  Tomorrow is a big day with orientation and meeting their new companions/trainers.
