As is our tradition, we traveled from the train station to Montjuic to take in a view of the mission field and hear the story of Columbus.

On Wednesday morning we introduced the new missionaries to their trainers, then spent a couple of hours studying the doctrine of Christ and practicing inviting investigators to be baptized (because that is what we do).
|Hna. Ratcliff (from Auckland, NZ) practices the baptismal invitation |
with her trainer, Hna. Soderquist.
In the background, Elder Rios (Granada, Spain),
practices with his trainer, Elder Gallegos
|Elder Cerqueira (Elvas, Portugal), practices with his trainer, Elder Greep.|
Hna. Farrell (Rolling Hills Estates, CA) practices with Hna. Boone.
|Trainers (back row): Elders Gallegos, Greep, Hnas. Boone, Soderquist, Ruz, Elders Keller, Bennington, Buchkovich.|

Albacete hasn't had missionaries for about 7 years, so Elders Bennington and Arce have an exciting few months ahead of them as the build up this little branch! (Note to ex-misioneros del faro: if you would like to listen to the "secret Albacete tape" just let me know!)
