I made it alive! We are in the church building in antelope going through some orientation stuff, super exciting. They are going to let us go to bed early though because we have all been up since three haha so that is awesome. You should have seen us, 25 dashing young missionaries plowing through the airport with giant smiles. People looked at us like we were aliens haha. It was raining when we landed, which is a blessing. It is going to be very hot the next couple of months, so we need to take advantage of this while we can. My P day is going to be Mondays, so that’s when you will be receiving emails. I find out who my trainer is tomorrow! I can’t wait! I have my interview with my Mission president in a few, and i guess from that is how he decides who goes with who. I’m already loving it here and it hasn’t even begun! Love you ūüôā


Leaving for California

Sarah called this morning from the airport.  They are on their way out to Roseville.  She said  there are around 38 missionaries that are on the same plane.  She said that they are quite the spectacle.  They were the first set of missionaries to take the FrontRunner and their luggage, switching to Trax downtown.  She had an amazing time in the MTC and has lots of great stories to tell.  She loves her companion sister Osborne.  She is from Cache Valley, Utah.  They will arrive this afternoon in California, and the mission home is waiting for them.  This is the largest group the mission home has ever received.  They said that the average was about 6 to 8 missionaries.  She has a bike there waiting for her, and will have fun trying to ride in a skirt.  It is possible from the announcement on Sunday, that she may be able to use a computer for her mission.  It may happen while she is serving.  Possibly within the next year.  She says hi to everyone, and misses you all.
