Parents and friends of missionaries arriving in the Washington Everett Mission today:
We joyfully received eight Spanish-speaking Sisters, seven English-speaking Sisters, and one valiant English-speaking Elder today. It has been a busy day! They’ve been fed and given a little training and had a short interview with me as Mission President. They were assigned their first companions here in Washington early this evening and are now in transit to their apartments. They should all be in their areas this evening and planning their proselyting day for tomorrow. Tomorrow they will be doing the work of full-time missionaries!
They are an impressive group and we are delighted to have them. We will see them again on Friday for additional training and once again on Saturday when we will be having a conference with a visiting General Authority. I’m sure they’ll have something to say about that when they email you on Monday.
