We welcomed 9 new elders to the Kobe Mission this past week. One is from Australia, one from the Philippines, 2 from the US and 5 from Japan. All attended the MTC in Provo and arrived together. Two of the Japanese elders were in Sister Erika McIntyre' class in the MTC. She is now a teacher for the Japanese missionaries at the MTC.Front row left to right - Sister McIntyre, Elders Toring, Tateishi, McKellar, Tsushima and President McIntyre.
