more EMTC pics

New pictures showed up yesterday in the google album that Sis. Durkin from the MTC posts.  It is so awesome to be able to see J in action and smiling and enjoying the mission experience so far.  Some of the photos were from a church history tour they took to Downham parish. They saw where President Hinckley lived when he was serving in England and also the square where the first missionaries preached in 1837.  Patti gave us most of this information.  Thank goodness for a wonderful BirmingMum!!!

We are so very grateful to Sister Durkin for putting these photos in an album online.  What a blessing to see proof of J and her excitement for the mission!!!

We got a brief email this morning from J letting us know that she will be boarding a bus with 15 other missionaries from the EMTC and traveling to Birmingham to the mission home.  They will leave tomorrow (Saturday) morning at 6:45 a.m.  She hopes to be able to email us again on Monday and let us know where she will be serving for at least the next six weeks.  Exciting stuff!!!!

  1. I couldn't sleep last night because I was so excited about J leaving the EMTC!! By now she's probably getting to know her new companion. Ah! Can't wait until Monday!
