Eight New Missionaries in the Angola Mission Region
Saturday, the 17th, brought us 8 new missionaries! They arrived in the dim light of a new day in Luanda. We fit them all into two vehicles, but President Walton had to tie down the mound of luggage in the back of the zone leaders truck. After arriving at the mission home they ate breakfast, got to know the other missionaries, looked at the map of Angola, showered, and tried to stay awake during the day long training. Finally President Walton assigned them their new area and trainer. After taking pictures and a quick dinner, they all headed to their new homes. Elders Richter and Perry stayed behind for a day or two before they caught a bus to their area in the south, Lubango. Our little band of pioneer missionaries include, back: Elders Call, Manuel, Nequetela, Bauer, Allison, Perry and Borden; middle: Elders Tolman, Rainbolt, Schioser, Richter, Kelsey, Davis and Walker; front: Elders Ventura, Bene, and Sande. The Lord has truly blessed the work here with these special missionaries.
