We are so happy to welcome 20 new missionaries into the Italy Rome Mission. They arrived on Wednesday, May 18th. What a wonderful group of missionaries! Even though they were exhausted after a very long trip, their spirits were bright and they are ready to do missionary work. Here are their names (in alphabetical order).
Elders: Andersen (Cave Creek, AZ), Bradshaw (Hawthorne, FL), Bunker (Cedar Hills, UT), Cardinet (Newcastle, CA), Embree (St. Anthony, ID), Esplin (Pocatell, ID), Gibson (Pocatello, ID), Gibson (Orange, CA), Hansen (Smithfield), Hill (Valencia, CA), Holland (South Jordan, UT), Larsen (Draper, UT), Nelson (Spanish Fork, UT), Pettry (Frankfort, KY), Shipton (Rigby, ID), Simonetta (Glibert, AZ), Sloan (Red Cliff, Cananda), Wright (Rochdale, MA),
Sisters: Hicks, (Tecumseh, OK), Johnson (Hyrum, UT), and Turley (Buckley, WA).
They are all assigned to trainers and are now out in the field all over Sicily, Sardegna and Southern Italy.
Here is the entry to the mission home with the jackets from the elders hanging on the railing. It's always so great to have the missionaries in the mission home!
