Sister Brown is off to Tokyo

E left the MTC for Tokyo on Monday October 28.  Because my children are rule breakers Josh, Britt, Lizzy and Alisa went to see her at the airport.  They were there bright and early at 6:30 a.m. sad to say E was not.  Her group of missionaries were given the wrong time to be at the travel office and so they were quite late in getting to the airport.  Poor Josh and Britt had to leave the airport without seeing her to get to their jobs on time.   Finally the missionaries arrived, Lizzy and Alisa got to give E a quick hug and a good luck and send her on her way.
She also got to see Trent Anderson who was on his way to Toronto for business and of course our airport guru Kirk Pace.  He always looks out for our missionaries.
Maybe E should get a job at Delta when she gets home!

We talked to her for a few minutes on the phone while she was in Salt Lake.  When she arrived at LAX she called and had more time to chat.  She sounded great and was so excited to get to Japan.

We received this email on Tuesday Evening:

Dear Parents,
We just want to send you a quick note to let you know that your missionary arrived safely in Japan last evening.  President and Sister Budge met them at the airport, fed them, visited shortly, and then sent them all to bed for a much needed rest.
Today they will receive training and will soon meet their new companions who have been chosen to train them.  We will take pictures at that time, and within a few days you will receive another email with these pictures attached, and our mailing address.
Thank you for entrusting your missionary to us in the great Japan Tokyo Mission.  We so appreciate all you have done to get these missionaries to this point in their lives!

Sister Harrison
Japan Tokyo Mission Secretary

Yay she is safe and sound and we are "patiently waiting" to hear more news!
