This is our first group of departing missionaries. It is amazing to us how much we came to love them in the 6 short weeks we have known them. These are some of the greatest men and women I have known. What wonderful leaders they are going to be.
The beauty of this area still amazes us. As we travel to meetings etc. it is often cloudy and occasionally the clouds will lift or we get a clear day on a subsequent trip and we are astounded at the beauty that was surrounding us all that time.

We have just finished our first month and have traveled the mission twice. We held Zone conferences with each zones and had a chance to meet the missionaries and discuss the work we are now engaged in together. We later had a chance to return for individual interviews with each missionary. What a wonderful group of young men and women so dedicated to the Lord´s service. It is truly going to be a pleasure for us to serve with them over the comming months.
Ken & Susie Lovell received us and gave us a quick orientation. They have been wonderful Mission Presidents and already we have received many comments from members and Missionaries with expressions of love for them and their great service. They have left their mark on this beautiful country. We hope that we will be blessed to do so as well.
We arrived in Osorno on June 28th and were received at the airport by President and Sister Lovell, Elder and Sister Biddulph and the office Elders: Bastian, Hansen, Andia, Rodriguez, Williamson and Mangelson. They quickly made us feel at home.
