New Missionary Orientation in Cocody

2019-10-23 New Missionary Orientation (9)Our hearts were as warm as the temperature outside today!  All the new missionaries came from all over (they spent the night with local Elders and Sisters) and we met at the Stake Center in Cocody for our New Missionary Orientation.  2019-10-23 New Missionary Orientation (1)

The new companionships were announced and each new missionary got to bear their testimony in French.  We aren’t the only ones learning this new language.  It was a sweet meeting.  Pres and Sis Binene both taught us about our missionary purpose, the Doctrine of Christ, and they had a bit to say about adjusting to missionary life.

After the meeting, we went outside for photos.  Each missionary had a picture taken with the Binenes, which would be sent home to their parents.2019-10-23 New Missionary Orientation (2)2019-10-23 New Missionary Orientation (10)2019-10-23 New Missionary Orientation (3)2019-10-23 New Missionary Orientation (12)2019-10-23 New Missionary Orientation (4)2019-10-23 New Missionary Orientation (13)2019-10-23 New Missionary Orientation (5)
