We didn’t receive an email from Marie yesterday but we knew we wouldn’t. A couple of days ago we received an email from the MTC president letting us know Marie and the other missionaries going to Birmingham would be leaving the MTC on Tuesday and likely wouldn’t have time to email. The next time we hear from her will be next Monday. We did receive an email from one of the sister missionaries, Sister D’Costa, who is still at the MTC with pictures of their district!
This is their class room with one their teachers, Brother Webb (center with the white name tag).
Their main teacher, Brother Wilford, is in the white shirt in the middle.
Their district was called the Ammon district. All the districts were named after Book of Mormon missionaries.
Yesterday our family went bowling at lunchtime and when we got home there was a message on our answering machine. Take a listen!
We were so sad we missed a call from England! But we are thankful for kind strangers letting us know she is safe and being taken care of. We DID get a long, 10 page handwritten letter from Marie yesterday and I will be posting that soon with other pictures we received from Marie.
Oh! And the mission has a blog and they posted pictures of all the new arrivals today! Check it out here: Welcome New Missionaries – 14 June 2016.
