March Arrivals from the Provo MTC!!!!!

Tuesday, March 14, 2017, we traveled to the airport to pick up our new missionaries coming from the MTC in Provo.  We love being able to receive new missionaries and we look forward to their service here in Sweden.  Below, pictured left to right are:  President and Sister Beckstrand, Elder Pärkkä, Elder Christley, Elder Pack, Elder Winnett, Elder Jensen, Sister DeMordaunt, Elder Hawkins, Sister Hall, and Sister and Elder Anderson.

Sister Beckstrand provides some fun facts to Sister Hall, Sister DeMordaunt and Elder Winnett.

With a smaller group coming to the mission field, we took them to lunch at Vapianos in the Täby Centrum with their contacting friends.  Pictured left to right beginning with Sister Beckstrand, Elder Jensen, Elder Christley, Elder Hawkins, Elder Winnett (hiding in the tree), Elder Pack, Elder Pärkkä, Sister DeMordaunt, Sister Hall, Sister Davis, and Sister May.

It will always be a memory for Sister Beckstrand, running to COOP to purchase some last minute items for dinner for the new missionaries.

 Wednesday morning, March 15, 2017, our new missionaries received orientation to the mission and the expectations that we have for all of our missionaries.  Sister Beckstrand teaches them about the importance of exact obedience and how it can lead to miracles in the mission field.

Elder Winnett will be trained by Elder Lloyd.

As the assignments have been made and companions have been introduced, it is time for our traditional lunch of Swedish Meatballs before the missionaries embark upon their destinations.  Good luck to each one of you and we know the Lord will protect, guide, and bless you as you serve Him faithfully.  We love you!!!!!!!!
