New Missionaries Arrived on Tuesday, September 20, 2011

We received a group of 19 wonderful, bright, sweet, eager, smart, angel-missionaries on Tuesday, September 20, 2011. They were so anxious to get right to work sharing the Gospel! They had hundreds of questions, and they exclaimed over and over, "We are finally in Chile. This is our mission. We are really here. It hardly seems real." President Laycock and I were so grateful for their safe arrival. We welcomed 16 of them from the United States at the Santiago Airport, and then we welcomed the other 3 from the Chile CCM. We immediately loved them all so much. It is always such a miracle to me how Heavenly Father immediately allows us to feel such overwhelming love for each of our missionaries. The more we got to know them, the more love we felt for them and from them. They are a very loving and dedicated group of angels. We are so thankful for them!

I just found this website! I'm so thrilled! Thank you for posting these wonderful pictures, When I found this website I quickly looked in the archives to see if there were any pictures of my son arriving there and here they are! I'm Elder Jeffrey Allison's mother, and it's so fun to see pictures of him on his first day in Chile. He has had nothing but wonderful things to say about President and Sister Laycock. I feel he is in wonderful hands. Thank you!
