Emilee left for Chile at 11:15am Tuesday, December 31st. Here she is getting ready to go through security.
Does she look like a fantastic Missionary or what! It was a long day and a long night as we waited to hear of her arrival. Her flight landed in Santiago at 9:00am, January 1st. We just received our first email:
I have arrived safely and am at the CCM now. There were 7 other missionaries that I met in Alanta and we all flew together. They were really fun to meet and I felt like a genius because I was the only one who was fluent. The flight went really well and I was able to sleep for 5 hours. Which is good since we are going right to work. After arriving we went to that historic building (we read about it on a blog) that is not part of the CCM to stay and live, but it turned out that Antofagasta missionaries dont stay there. So i was specially driven over to the CCM. We are working on memorizing some scripture right now, but I have 5 minues to write. I will be in the CCM for two weeks, since apparently I still remember all of my Spanish. So my departure date is January 14. Everything has been fun and I am getting along well with all the latina sisters, which is good because they will be my companions while I am here. I have only met three other people going to Antofagasta, which is crazy because the misison is soooo much bigger than any other in Chile. Well I have to go! Talk to you later I love you all. Not sure when P day is yet
What a blessing to have our sweet Emilee serving a mission. We will continue to post her emails and pictures.
One Proud Missionary Mom!
