The new missionaries went with the Assistants to hand out Books of Mormon and get referrals. They alternated in small groups throughout the day. At the mission home, after dinner, we gathered and talked about their experiences. Everyone had a golden moment, and a total of 36 contacts with people giving out their contact information so they could be taught by missionaries! This was a huge success and something we plan to continue with all new missionaries.
The missionaries are holding up the contact cards they got today. This group is amazing! We are so happy they have joined our mission family.
Counting all the contacts for a total of 36, however, one of the Elders found three more in his suit pocket later, making it a total of 39! Incredible!
