She arrived!

Email from Pres. and Sis. Blatter we received this morning at 11:57am

This is just a quick note to let you know that your missionary arrived safely in Tacoma today.
We took our new missionaries to the Puget Sound (photo attached). From here they will have a great lunch. Then they will be interviewed, given a brief orientation, and meet their new companion, who will also be their trainer.  After a very spiritual meeting where the departing missionaries will share their testimonies, they will be off to their new areas.

We are thrilled to welcome them into the out mission. Please feel free to contact either of us if you have any questions or concerns. You are also invited to check out the mission blog athttps://www.calledtoservewa-tac.blogspot.com/

May the Lord bless you and your family.
President and Sister Blatter

Week 3: Phone call from the Salt Lake Airport

So happy both Jaymes and Tyler were able to join us as they walked into work. John stayed home a little later and Brayden heard my happy cheers when she called. We heard her share what she loves about the MTC and what she was happy to be done with but most importantly she answered the question, "What do you think has changed the most about you in 3 weeks" and she responded, "I know my Savior better and can always depend on him." A tearful answer shared with conviction and love. Now she is on to a wonderful adventure in the Washington Tacoma mission and will be blessed for eternity. Its all over but the work! Love you Sister Monson!
