President and Hermana Andersen

The Passing of the Keys

With the touch-down of the Andersen's plane on July1, the Presidency of the Spain Málaga Mission passed from President Deere to President Andersen, and a new chapter of the mission opened. The Andersens fit enough in the first few weeks to last months, as the pictures will show. 
First up were 3 meetings of three zones each to let the missionaries meet and get to know their new Mission President couple.


Bonus - the Hermanas of Málaga

Then came transfers on July 7. Meet our new missionaries!

Finally there was Consejo (notice the new name), followed by individual interviews of each missionary by President Andersen, followed by another Consejo (getting back on the regular schedule). Mission Presidents and their wives are unbelievably busy!
