A Twist in the Travel Plans
Hi All! It's Jordanne's mom.
Jordanne and her companions left the MTC early this morning for the airport where they would fly from SLC to Los Angeles, and then from Los Angeles to Santiago. She sounds like she is doing well. She is excited, and a little frightened. She is grateful to have 3 sisters and 7 elders who she knows from the MTC to travel with.
She asked me to email her a copy of the addresses that had been posted on her mission address book. I wasn't aware that there was a mission address book, so you may not have either! Before I email it to her, I'm going to post the address to it here so that those who didn't know it existed will have a chance to fill it out. This information is transmitted to a private document that only Jordanne and I have access to. Here it is:
So now for the twist. We got up early this morning to await a phone call from the airport. Jordanne did call, just before 8:00 AM and several of us had a chance to talk to her. She mentioned that she may call again during their layover in Los Angeles, but when 3:00 rolled around and I still hadn't heard from her, I figured she couldn't work it out and I would hear from her mission president when she arrived in Chile. Then, at about 3:30, Jordanne called again. She said that their flight to Chile today had been cancelled!! They will stay in a hotel in Los Angeles and catch another flight in the morning.
So Jordanne and her companions will arrive in the mission field a day later than originally planned, but they will probably be a bit more rested than most missionaries are when they first arrive. That's probably not a bad thing.
Keep the letters coming! Thank you so much for your support!
