We had three great elders finish their service this week that had to get home for college entrance exams. Thank you so much for your service in the mission.
MISSION MAILING ADDRESSContrary to popular rumor, the mission mailing address has not changed. Please send your packages and letters from the US via USPS to the following address:
Name of missionary
Republica de Panama
As a reminder, you cannot mail medications to Panama and if you send food items, they may or may not make it through customs. Also, Panama does not have a mail delivery system. All mail and packages must be picked up at the post office and it can take weeks or months for mail to clear customs and get to your missionary.
MISSION LEADERSHIP COUNCILThe church just built a new stake center in downtown Panama City, which also houses the new mission office. We had our first missionary meeting there this week, which was our mission leadership council.
The new building
The new building is right across the street from one of the synagogues in Panama City.

We consumed a few pizzas. Here are some of the boxes.
