Day One in the Philippines! Welcome to the Cavite Mission

Hunter and fellow missionaries arriving in Manila after a full day of travel!

Sister Tye, the mission president’s wife, posted a few pictures of the arriving missionaries in Hunter’s mission which I have copied into this post.  Following their arrival at around 10:30 p.m. local time they loaded into vans and were transported to a hotel where they finally got to sleep around 1:00 a.m.  The next morning they had breakfast and introduced themselves to President and Sister Tye.

Eating breakfast...looks like Costco's influence can be felt around the world (I am referring to the Costco muffin in the photo!)

Later that day they had a banquet which included local foods and they met up with new missionaries from other MTC’s that had arrived in Cavite.  Then they found out their first companions and assignments!  Hunter will have a chance to write and email on Monday hopefully with more details about his long journey to the Philippines!
