We recieved 10 new elders to the mission here in Freetown on June 21st. Here they are arriving at the Govrnment Wharf after a long water taxi ride across the water from the airport in Lungi (the water taxi ran out of gas and another boat had to bring them some). Some of the African elders were a little worried; not only their first airplane ride but also first boat ride! Three of these elders were assigned to the Liberia part of the mission and are now in Monrovia. They get to serve in the same areas as our two first-ever sister missionaries (see next post). I am sure the sisters will be happy to have some of their MTC brothers in Liberia with them.
