We just received our first email from Japan! I want to share a short part of it, to give you all an update!!
Hello family GREETINGS FROM JAPAN!
I made it in last night safe and sound after a loooong day of plane travel. I am here with my whole district, and will be spending one more day at the mission home. I find out who my first companion is tonight at 9pm. I think it is probably like 5pm in Utah right now, its currently 8:45 am. We just had a delicious breakfast provided by our lovely mission president's wife. I just had my first interview with him, and it was great. P-DAYS are Monday, so you can expect to get emails from me on Sunday evenings because of the time difference. I will let you know what area I get assigned to as soon as i can ok! I have to go, but i love you! Don't worry about me, I am in great hands here and I am going to love Japan!
