New Missionaries - Golden Envelopes - August 2015

August 19, 2015

D&C 68:6

Wherefore, be of good cheer, and do not fear, for I the Lord am with you, 
and will stand by you; and ye shall bear record of me, even Jesus Christ, 
that I am the Son of the living God, that I was, that I am, 
and that I am to come.

After a day of training and setting up Ipads, the new missionaries were more than ready to gather in the living room for the final event of the evening -- opening the Golden Envelopes.  Nineteen new missionaries were so excited, but wondered where those places were that they couldn't pronounce and what their Trainers would be like.  One missionary who had gone home for medical reasons was able to return to the mission at the same time.  He didn't have an Ipad when he was here before so had to go through all the training again.

Everyone was excited, but tired.  They were ready for bed because departure time was 6:30 in the morning.  They are off to new adventures.  They are missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  They are in Italy to hasten the work of the Lord.  We love them already.
