We received 7 great missionaries today who arrived excited and ready to serve the Lord here in Parana. The bottom picture is of our new missionaries with their trainers. The new training program of the Church is a real blessing to our mission. Each new missionary has an additional hour of companionship study each day with a specific training schedule that helps not only the new missionary, but the trainer as well, focus on their purpose.
