Sister Erika McIntyre Arrives in Sapporo and Begins Her Service in Japan

Erika (Sister McIntyre, not to be confused with her mom who is also Sister McIntyre!) upon arrival at the Sapporo Airport with President and Sister Daniels September 29, 2008
The new missionaries in Sapporo. The two Japanese sisters arrived from the Japan MTC and Sister McIntyre arrived with 4 elders from the Utah MTC. The Elder the second from the right is Elder Burton. His twin brother (Elder Burton) arrived in our mission from the MTC on the same day! They look an awful lot alike. Sister McIntyre knew both of them from the MTC.
The Sapporo group at the mission home. The couple on the left are the Makise's. They left from the Hanayashiki ward in Osaka in the Kobe Mission and also just arrived in Sapporo. Before leaving on her mission, Erika spent some time in that ward on splits with the Sisters in the Kobe Mission and met the Makise's. Now she is serving in the same mission with them. Small world!
Sister McIntyre and her first companion, Sister Aloi who is from Canada. Her first Area is Ebetsu. We are excited for her!
