Wednesday was new missionary orientation. We had three new missionaries, Elder Ashton from Utah, Elder Lau from Hong Kong, and Elder de Moura from Brazil. Since Elder de Moura spoke good English, he only stayed in the MTC for three weeks instead of 9 weeks so he arrived early. For this reason Elder Woodruff was transferred to Picking (leaving Elders Lima, Workman, and de Moura as a threesome). Since we were also new, we joined the new them at the new missionary orientation with Pres. and Sister Eyre.

Saturday was a very busy day. We started the morning with a new session of ESL classes. We were assigned to teach the Portuguese class (the beginning class for those who know very little English). No one showed up so Elder Wheeler joined with class "C" (low level of English) while Sis. Wheeler waited to see if anyone else showed up. There was an older man in the class who spoke Chinese (Cantonese) and very little English. Elder Wheeler had to do a lot of translation into Mandarin for him. Sister Wheeler is really being put to use playing the piano for district meetings and ESL. We had a 4:30 appointment across town for the elders to introduce us to an inactive member. The member was not home so we rushed back just in time to attend a farewell social for Pres. and Sister Eyre at the McNabbs house.
