We flew to Hyderabad on Thursday.
The missionaries began to gather on Friday morning at about 9:00. There was electricity in the air as 77 Elders and Sisters began to arrive and visit with each other at the Hyderabad Stake Center.
Behind the Stake Center workers were busy erecting a shelter for the overflow crowd that was expected on Saturday.
We assembled in the chapel for the group picture--sooo many details!
Traditional Indian lunch was served outside so we wouldn't mess up the building!
The members had been working day and night for several weeks to make sure the facilities looked good...they even power-washed the parking lot.

President and Sister Nelson personally greeted each of the missionaries.
A time to remember always!
As he shook Elder Newton's hand, he said "Your grandchildren will be blessed."
We were taught by both President and Sister Nelson.
