They were also each given a Book of Mormon and challenged to hand it out during the trip to the Mission Home.
Some of them already succeeded.

The President and I are SO impressed with this new group of missionaries.
They are blessed to have been sent here, and we are blessed to add them to our family!
A parting note ...
This number was performed at the Visitors' Center on the occasion of my husband's and my introductory fireside, entitled "Why I Believe." With only one combined rehearsal, it was my first inkling into the level of musical talent we have in this missionary force!
(Bravo to Sister Nakatsuka who can be heard - albeit not seen - on the piano accompaniment!)
