No pics or letter today, just a terrific early morning phone call from a very happy missionary. She called from the SLC airport while waiting for her flight to Washington to officially "get her boots on the ground" there. She and her companion couldn't find an open pay phone, so a sweet lady loaned them her cell phone to call home.
She told me that there are 9 missionaries on her flight heading to the Federal Way Mission. She and her companion are the only sister missionaries -- the rest are elders. She absolutely LOVED her experience in the MTC and everything that went into it. She is excited to get to Washington and to get to work there. She was also anxious to get updates from home and to hear how everyone is doing.
She's still trying to figure out how to get her pics from her camera onto a computer to send them home. Hopefully she'll have time to figure it out soon!! *anxious mama*
Today, when she arrives she will meet her Mission President and his wife. She will also get assigned her first companion there as well as find out what part of her mission she'll start off in. I can't wait to hear about it! :)
I don't anticipate that we'll get our first email from her until next Monday.
Love that girl!!!!
