For the first time, Russians, Ukrainians, Bulgarians, Albanians and Baltic missionaries have a place to go for their MTC experience. Previous to this they would go directly to the mission field. Some, those that were fluent in English and could get a visa to the U.S. were allowed to go to Provo, but most did not. This is our first group. They represent several countries and they all speak Russian. They also represent the tribes of Dan, Asher, Neptali, Ephraim, Manasseh, and Joseph. We are finding the lost ten tribes. They are delightful. In our second picture, we have an Albanian going to Italy (he learned Italian watching TV) and two Italians that were born in the Church. Elder Visintine's grandparents were members and his mom was born in the Church. they are going to Italy. We also have two North Americans in this group going to Spain. Today they went to Retiro Park to contact people. They started to sing in Russian and the first four people that they stopped to talk to spoke Russian. This is historic. Our next group in 3 weeks are 10 North Americans going to Spain, 10 French going to France and 4 Italians going to France. Our meetings and classes are interesting.
