Well, we have arrived in the California Riverside Mission! President and Sister Mullen met us at the Ontario Airport.
|Ah, the arrival from Salt Lake City to Ontario Airport|
We traveled to the Mission Office where we met all of the senior couples from the Mission, the Assistants, and the Office Elders.

On Saturday evening after we arrived, we went with Elder Parson, one of the Assistants, and Elder Osberg, a Zone Leader, on a missionary split. We had a great time with them. We spoke a lot of Spanish, taught a lesson to a young man named Alex, gave a blessing, picked up two or three potential investigators, visited a member family who had a referral, and arrived back to the Church late.

We had baptisms —Sunday, July 9, 2017. Anthony from the Young Single Adult Ward (YSA was baptized. Elders that worked with Anthony included (from left to right): Elder Goodrich, Elder Yeaman, Elder Langley, Anthony, Elder Anderson, and Elder Murphy. Incredible young men! Incredible examples!
