We welcomed 9 new missionaries on  Monday.  They are wonderful and we are so happy to have them here in New York.  After the airport we headed to the Scarsdale Chapel for dinner, followed by a testimony meeting and ice cream sundaes at the mission home.  After a good nights sleep we met again at the Scarsdale Chapel for some brief instruction and meeting their trainers.  Then they were off to work! 

Called to Serve Him Heavenly King of Glory
Chosen Heir to witness for his name
Far and wide we'll tell the Fathers story
Far and wide His love proclaim
Onward, ever onward
as we glory in His name
Onward, ever onward 
as we glory in His name
Forward, pressing forward
as a triumph song we sing
God our strength will be
Press forward ever called to serve our King!

 Tuesday afternoon Dave and I attended a session at the Manhattan Temple with 11 missionaries who were completing their missions.  It is a huge blessing to be with them in the Temple prior to their departure for home.  We have had these Elders for 3/4 of their mission and the sisters the entire time.  It seems like yesterday we welcomed them in.  Time goes by so quickly.  They have grown and served so valiantly.  I will really miss them.
