New Missionaries - Busy Day

August 18, 2015

The first day in Rome is exhausting for a new missionary.  They have been awake for hours traveling on a plane.  They are exhausted and in a different time zone.  They are also very hungry.  The first thing we try to do once they leave the airport is take a picture at the temple site on the way to the villa and then feed them.  After some training by the office missionaries, the assistants usually take them for a ride on the metro to see the Colosseum.  It's an opportunity for them to interact with the Italian people and try their hand at handing out pass-a-long cards on the way.  It's also a great way to become immersed in the culture of Italy.  And then they are hungry again!
