Alex arrived in San Diego yesterday. We haven't heard from him personally yet but received an email and picture from his Mission President.
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 feed them again! I was able to individually meet with each of our 18 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 young people. It is truly our privilege to serve alongside them.
May God's choicest blessings be with each of you.
