                             We picked the missionaries up from the bus stop in Urdaneta

                                Then dinner was served at the Urdaneta Stake center

                           Sisters get served first!  :) .....   then Elders Davis and Dela Cruz
                                              talk to the missionaries after dinner

              (L) President Monahan with Elders Dela Cruz, Davis, Mayes, Hyatt, Peñaranda,
                             Matthews and our wonderful cooks: Sisters Carol and Viviene

                                 First night in the mission field = lots of tired missionaries!

  The next morning, missionaries arrived early to have their interviews with President, then we
  went outside for Sister Engels to take our pictures--thanks for providing the shade, Elder Mayes.

               The missionaries did a great job making their own PB&J sandwiches for lunch

                         After lunch, they walked across the parking lot to the mission home for
                                         an orientation meeting followed by testimonies

                                                Back to the stake center for dinner.....

                                               and a couple of games before leaving.

                              All the new missionaries are ready to hit the ground running!
