|Elder deOliveira first meeting Elder Augusto.|
It is very exciting to meet your trainer for the first time. It usually includes a big hug.
It's tradition to get your picture taken, showing the area you will be working in. (All the new missionaries are on the left.)
| Elder Sambongi will be serving with Elder Kuwahara in Ichinomiya. |
|Elder Wakamatsu will be in Suwa serving with Elder Kerksiek. |
|This is Elder James with his trainer, Elder Clark. They will be in Seto.|
|Sister Eguchi (left) and Sister Inoue met seconds ago and are already best friends. |
Sister Shizuka Eguchi is from Kai, Yamanishi, Japan. She likes listening to classical music and going to concerts. Doing good deeds secretly brings her much joy. She once had a church leader touch her heart with some special advice, including reading the Book of Mormon. She followed that advice and her life changed since that day.
Sister Inoue's goal is to go to university or specialized school, possibly in a foreign country. Of course, a temple marriage and family are part of her plans, and even to become a couple missionary in the future. She is cheerful and loves talking with friends.
|These beautiful sisters will be serving in Fukutoku.|
|Elder deOliveira will be serving with Elder Augusto in Takaoka.|
|Elder Augusto is one of the funniest elders in the mission, according to another missionary who knows him well. He has the ability to love anyone, and everyone loves him. What a wonderful thing to have said about you!|
|And Elder Sarager gets to serve with Elder Ashcroft in Inuyama.|
Home for Elder Spencer Sarager is Gilbert, Arizona. He has three older brothers who have served missions. He loves the outdoors and all sports.
Elder Ashcroft's mother was converted by his father, and was born in Nagoya. How exciting for Elder Ashcroft to serve a mission in his mother’s hometown.
