Onward Christian Soldiers - Welcoming New Missionaries (Day 2)

Wow! What a fun day! This new group of missionaries is truly spectacular! This morning the new missionaries came to the Barcelona 2nd Ward Chapel where they met up with their yet unassigned trainers. After a delicious lunch of barbecue pork sandwiches with a salad on the side we took the above group picture then moved into the final training meeting. We heard messages about the Vision of the Mission, What we do in El Faro, and a presentation entailing many aspects of the missionary work here in Spain.

Finally we reached the highly anticipated companionship assignments! Here they are!
