Dear Parents:  

Your son or daughter has arrived and all is well.  We picked them up at the 
airport Tuesday morning at 8:30 am.  We brought them to Leiden but our Mission 
Office is not big enough for the orientation, trainings and interviewing--AND--the 
mission home is not large enough to have this many stay, so we used the Tulip 
Inn across the street from the Mission Office.  We checked them in and got right 
to work with orientation and interviews with President.  After lunch of panne 
koeken,  we finished interviews and they went street contacting.  They are 
amazing!  We then let them have a nap and at 6:30 pm we had a wonderful dinner 
at the hotel with a fireside and testimonies.  Last of all they opened their 
'first call' letter to find out who their trainer would be and where they would 
be serving.  They were in bed by 10:30 pm.  At 9:00 am Wednesday morning, the 
AP's trained them.  At 10:00 am, they met their new companions and spent 45 
minutes hugging, talking, laughing and learning about the mission.  We trained 
on the 12 week program,  and had lunch together.  They all headed to the Mission 
Office to pick up phones, keys, etc.  Then, two by two they left with all their 
baggage over to the train station to head off to their new assignment.
