Yesterday we received 19 new missionaries fresh from the MTC in Ghana. They were physically tired from waking early and plane and bus travel, but we had a great afternoon of training and interviews. We then sent them off to sleep in local missionary apartments.
This morning they are on their way to their first companions and assignments, eager to be engaged in the Lord’s work and, yes, a little apprehensive about the adventure that awaits them. However, from our interactions, including personal interviews, I am impressed by their strength and expect they will settle in nicely. Thank you for preparing a young man of quality.
We hope you enjoy the attached photo of your missionary with me and Sister Sherman.
May the Lord bless you and your missionary and the people he will be finding, teaching and baptizing here in Côte d’Ivoire.
