New York City – Day 1 of 31

The three of us have arrived in New York City. We are here for the entire month of July receiving mission training from Mission to the World.
 
Our home for the month of JulyThis morning we moved into our apartment. It is located at 189th and Broadway. Our apartment is a one bedroom unit located in the building pictured to the left. We are located in a Spanish speaking neighborhood called Washington Heights.
 
Tomorrow we report for our first day of mission training. We will join 30 other missionaries in training that will include cultural adaptation, language acquisition, team building and more. Our training will take place at a church in Queens.
 
In addition we will spend the first half of each day working at Iglesia Nueva Vida.  Nueva Vida is a Spanish only church. We will be serving in this church in whatever capacity is needed.
 
This month long training is intended to take us out of our comfort zone and provide us with some of the skills we will need to succeed on the mission field.
 
Check back frequently in July as we will be sharing lots of stories and pictures from our month in New York City.
