Arrival of our New Missionaries and our Visa Waiters!!!!!!
Tuesday, May 24, 2016, we arrived at Arlanda Airport early in the
morning to greet our new missionaries coming to Sweden. This large
group of 15 missionaries Included 7 new Sisters and 5 new Elders from
the Provo MTC and 3 Sisters who were waiting for their visas while
serving in the Las Vegas West Mission. We are so happy to finally

Wednesday, May 25, 2016, we met at the Täby Chapel for orientation,
instruction, and for finding out who the trainers for these great
missionaries will be, along with where they will be serving. President
Beckstrand provides some final comments before the excitement begins.
And, here are the trainers, all looking very Happy, with the exception of Elder Kendall, who always looks like this in pictures.
