We had spoken to Christian on Jan. 20 as he was waiting to board his plane at the Salt Lake City Airport. He sounded upbeat and positive about his MTC experience and excited/nervous about heading to San Diego. It was soooo nice to hear his voice.
We are so grateful that your sons and daughters arrived safely in San Diego today. They were a bit weary due to early morning travel, but we were able to feed them lunch, get them some rest (along with a letter written to you), and some training. I was able to individually meet with each of our new missionaries and am so impressed by their dedication and desire to follow Jesus Christ. Tomorrow morning, we will assign them their first area and missionary companion.
Thanks so much for your love and support of these great missionaries. It is truly our privilege to serve alongside them.
May God's choicest blessings be with each of you and your families.
