Greetings from the South Africa MTC
Your Elder is here. Due to mechanical difficulties and bad weather, it took an extra day to get everyone here, but we are very happy to say they made it. We are still missing luggage, but that will be sorted out by tomorrow. What a wonderful group of Elders. We love them already. God has blessed us with an incredible bunch. They had a busy day yesterday. They found their rooms, met their companions, unpacked, filled out forms, saw the nurse, ate, had a tour of the MTC, emailed, and were interviewed by President Collins. Last night we had our first meeting with them. We taught each other the "Doctrine of Christ." Even with their jet lag, they did a great job of participating and teaching. We can tell they have been well prepared for their missions and are focused and ready to learn. We will take good care of them for the next 11 days and will do our best to help them become the consecrated missionaries the Lord wants and needs.
The next time you will hear from your Elder will be on Thursday--their Pday.
