On Wednesday the new missionaries arrive at 8:00 am from the MTC. They have an orientation that last all the morning. While that is going on the president interviews each new missionary.

At 3:00 we go to the Magdallena chapel where all the missionaries come from all of Lima to receive their new assignments and meet their new companions. It is a very fun meeting. The president introduces each new missionary to all the rest of the mission.
