May 2016 Arriving Batch!

May 2016 Arriving Batch!

On May 11th, 2016, we welcomed another batch of missionaries to the mission. These missionaries have prepared themselves for the past few months and have arrived now in the field. After they left the MTC, they took a bus to Urdaneta, where they were met by our Office Staff and Assistants. They were shuttled to the Mission Office, where they met President and Sister Deyro, and were subsequently ushered to the Mission Home.

 The new missionaries were then fed a good lunch after the long bus ride from Manila. Once they were done, President Deyro took the opportunity to talk to each of them individually while the rest took care of some admin matters. After that, they were paired up temporarily with missionaries from the surrounding areas of Urdaneta and were sent out to work and to experience the mission field. They then had dinner and were shuttled back to the apartments in Urdaneta where they spent the night.

After a good night's sleep, the new missionaries returned to the Mission Home for their orientation meeting, where they were oriented to mission life by President and Sister Deyro and the Office Staff. After which, they had lunch together with the trainers. However, at that point, they still had no idea who their trainers would be. 

Lunch time!

Once lunch was done, the companionships were announced and everyone made their way back to their new areas to begin pruning and dunging the Lord's vineyard.
