They come from all over the mission to the Hoover building for transfers. The meeting is exciting as we introduce the new missionaries to their companions. We have provided photographs of each new companionship below and tell you where they have gone today to begin their missionary labors. During this morning, beginning at 8:00 am, we take time to finish interviews that began last evening, train, practice missionary skills, and teach the gospel during this memorable day

Subject: Your missionary - Elder Mason Taylor!
How fun and special to have your son come to this mission. He looks good and is excited and he was happy when I gave him your testimony sheet with your picture when you left our mission in Missouri. I put your sheet in the front of the binder that all of our new missionaries receive.
We had dinner at the mission home last night and your Elder Taylor bore his testimony when President Holzapfel asked for anyone to do so that felt inclined. What a fine young man! Today he was at the Hoover building for training and to meet his new companion. Elder Lasiki from Tonga is his new companion and he will be a good trainer. Elder Lasiki also plays the piano beautifully by ear. So, your missionary is off to a great start. Best Wishes and thank you for sharing Elder Taylor with us. Sister Cope
We are looking forward to the days ahead!
