Sisters going, Elders coming (edited version)

Sisters going

One sister left on her mission recently.
Sister Pallekonda, from Visakhapatnam, has recently left on her mission to England London South.
President Funk set her apart as a missionary before her departure.
 Sister Pallekonda is such a great young woman.  She will make a terrific missionary in England.
Here we are at 1:30 am, prior to departing for the airport.  The international flights all fly at atrocious hours of the night.

Then there were the 2 Sisters who are going to Australia on their mission.  They waited for so long for their visas, it was crazy!
They were set apart in Hyderabad, together, but by different Priesthood leaders.
 President Gutty set apart Sister Polisetti (on the left) and President Funk set apart Sister Penumaka (on the right).  The reason is that Sister Polisetti lives within the new Hyderabad India Stake so must be set apart by the new Stake President.
Sister Penumaka, Sister Funk, President Funk, Sister Polisetti (the first missionary set apart by a Stake President in India!!)

Elders coming     
Elder Peck
 Elder Taylor

 Walking back from lunch. Elder Chelladurai is visiting with Sister Funk.
 We are as the army of Helaman...
This is the entrance way to the office. It's so beautiful.
These are the new Elders with their trainers.
Across the back: Elder Taylor, Elder Lara, Elder Thompson, Elder Dass, Elder Sambaria
In the front: Elder Aruldoss, Elder Smoot, Elder Peck
I prepared the documents for their registration in the country and it was fun to get to know them a little.

  1. Sister Wigg, you don't know me but I found your blog on March 28th of the year when our son Ryan received his mission call to the India Bangalore Mission! We have thoroughly enjoyed learning about India through your awesome blog! Elder Head was set apart this evening and we couldn't be more excited! Thank you for documenting such great experiences in the mission field in India! Sincerely Michelle Head
