Arrival in Lyon

Email received on Tuesday, August 6th:

I am happy to let you know your missionary arrived safely in Lyon today.  President and Sister Roney met the missionaries at the airport and brought them to the Mission Office.   They had an interview with President Roney and the Office Elders and Elder Clark explained missionary finances and their visas.  Tonight  they will have dinner at the Pizza Pino and desert at President and Sister Roney's home.  Tomorrow  they will meet their companion/trainer and then have training with President Roney and the Assistants to the President.  After taking care of their legal residency issues on Friday morning they will board a train with their companion to travel to their first area.  I will send you their address and companion's name tomorrow. I am attaching a picture of your missionary with President and Sister Roney and one of the whole group.

Thank you for sending us such a fine missionary.

    We love you guys! And love the updates!

    Love, Ross and Dannielle

    1. Awww, that is so sweet! Thank you so much for that. I also can't believe she's already there--I'm trying not to think about that too much. It is easier to accept when I see how happy she is and how much she is thriving. We love you too!
