The day after we said goodbye to the departing missionaries, we welcomed a new batch of missionaries to the mission. The new batch of missionaries are the first batch to have gone back to the 3 weeks MTC program since the change from 2 weeks back to 3 weeks. The missionaries arrived with big smiles and were ready to serve the Lord. As we do not have a bus terminal close to the Mission Home, the missionaries got off at 7/11 and were shuttled by the Assistants and Office Staff to the Mission Home.

|After lunch, while President had his Entry Interview with them, Elder Chan, our Secretary, began with some administrative work|
After the lunch and interviews, the missionaries were paired up with our missionaries in Urdaneta and Urdaneta North Zones and spent the rest of the day proselyting. The next day, they came back for the orientation meeting, where they were oriented to different aspects of missionary life and, and to meet their Trainers.
