New arrivals

We had the first missionary couple in many years arrive in the Cali Colombia mission on Friday, September 30.  Elder and Sister Torgerson arrived from Idaho in the United States.  She will be helping us as a mission nurse and her husband is eager to get to work on President Prince's list of things to do.  We worked hard to get their apartment ready for them.  They are trying hard to understand and speak spanish as well as adapt to the culture of Colombia.

On Monday, October 3 the newest arrival joined us at 1:35am!  Our daughter Jennie and her husband, John, welcomed a new son into their family.  Matthan Lee Airmet weighed in at 8 lbs 2 oz and is
21 1/2 inches long.  With all that black hair we think he makes a cute little Colombiano!

Oh!  How I want to kiss those cheeks!!

On Tuesday, October 4 we received 9 new missionaries.  We were happy to have 2 sisters arrive with these 7 Elders.  What great missionaries.  After 2 days of training, they are off to work with their new companions.  Welcome to the best mission in the world Elders Valeria, Mas, Novoa, Sorensen, Gomez, Bello, and Mercado.  And Hermanas Lasso and Mirabal.
