During May the mission participated in two service activities. The Manhattan zones worked for three days with the Relvon Walk Run in the city.

The Westchester, Olmstead, and Kingsbridge Zones worked to prepare Camp Liahona for the summer season. What a beautiful setting to work!

The Senior Couples number grew with the addition of Elder & Sister Pead (CES) and Elder & Sister Hanson (Family History) but were sad to say good-bye to Elder & Sister Wheelwright and Elder & Sister Passey. They enjoyed a great tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and picnic in the Botanical Gardens.

The mission received 9 new missionaries on May 28th:
Elder Avanesyan 
Elder Leung
Sister Liao 
Elder Ryan
Sister Sheets
Sister Toone 
Elder Wangsgard 
Sister Westlund
Elder Wilkins 

Transfers on May 29th was full of big changes. A well loved Assistant to the President was released and a wonderful new Assistant was sustained. We will miss Elder Hutchins so much.

             Welcome Elder Wilsher!
Elder Fife, Elder Hill, Elder Hutchins, Sister Maldarizzi, Elder Hulme, Elder Bean, and Elder Nielson.
