On January 25, 2012 we met with all of our new missionaries and their trainers in the Las Condes Chapel for an oreintation and lunch. We felt the great love that these missionaries brought with them, and we knew immediately that they would bless our mission in unusual ways. These missionaries were an answer to President and Sister Laycock's prayers for more Latin missionaries in our mission. We needed these fine young men to come and be the Angels that take the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all who are searching for the truth.. The Lord needed these fine young men to come to the Chile, Santiago East Mission. We were so grateful for their safe arrival.
Thirteen total new missionaries arrived. Nine came from the Chile CCM, and the other three came from other CCM's in South America. Their names are: Elders Aguirre, Ayaviri, Ayuso, Bustamante, Carvajal, Cordova, Diaz, Insfran, Menendez, Rohre, Rossell, Vega, and Velandia. What a wonderful blessing they are to us and to the Chile, Santiago East Mission.
