Week of September 27- October 4-- Arrival of large, new missionary group, and Farewell to a fantastic group of veteran El Faro missionaries

   

President Dayton and I visited the Vilafranca Ward, and toured the site for the beautiful new chapel with Bishop Borrut and President Silvestre, of the L'Hospitalet Stake. We were invited to speak in the ward which normally has 75-80 people in attendance. We found out that Bishop Burrot had sent out colored flyers and Facebook announcements with our picture announcing that the Mission President and his wife would be speaking. They have to have an average attendance of 80 per sacrament meeting for two quarters before they can build. They had fallen short the first three weeks of the month, to our astonishment approximately 125 people showed up for the meeting, over-flowing the chapel and filling the halls. The Bishop was absolutely convinced it was because he had advertised our coming, we were less convinced but very happy with their high attendance.

   

President Dayton and I say farewell to an outstanding group of El Faro Missionaries upon completion of their missions (Elders Wheat, Roberts, Dailey, Lower, Webber, Richens, and Hermana Dorgia).

   

El Faro was blessed by the addition of 26 new missionaries, on September 29, 2015. Welcome to the greatest mission on the Earth's great face.

There is nothing like meeting your new companion for the first time!!! (Elder McCreary meeting his new companion Elder Cullimore)


The best part of the training meeting is when our new missionaries get to meet their trainers and find out where they will be serving!

                          

                           

                           

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

   
We went to a Catalan restaurant it was named La Fonda and had chicken Paella and sea bass which they served whole with the head still on. They brought this live lobster and placed it on our table before our entree arrived. It was interesting to see the server fillet and bone the fish and then serve it to us. The restaurant was right by the bay and with the pretty lights it was pretty spectacular.
