Mom note: This was the note we got from the mission office yesterday. We just weren't sure we'd hear from our missionary herself this week.
The missionaries have landed safely in Chicago, have met President and Sister Fenn and are headed towards the Mission Home where they will be oriented, treated to Chicago deep dish pizza and spend the night. President Fenn will interview them tonight and decide who their first companion will be. Tomorrow they will meet their trainer, have training from President Fenn, and then head out to their area. It is a very exciting time. We are so grateful to have these fine young men and women in our mission.
FYI here is some information that you did not receive in the welcome packet.
· Christmas: we are asking that all packages be sent to the mission office to arrive no later than Dec. 5th. That way if something is delayed or lost we still have time to recover before the special Christmas fireside where the gifts are handed out. Please mark the packages Christmas so we don’t give them to you missionary early.
· Facebook: It is great that our missionaries can use Facebook as a proselyting tool. While family and friends can follow their missionary on Facebook we request that you don’t comment or even “like” the posts.
· Mail: Please do not put anything besides your letter in your normal sized envelope. “Puffy or undersized letters are often charged $1.64 in postage due
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me either through email or phone. Thanks for sharing you missionary with us.
