Grant arrived in Fort Worth Texas this last Tuesday. We have been anxiously waiting to hear news of him. So anxious that when we had not heard anything by Wednesday Gary called the Fort Worth mission office and asked if our son was there. The reply was yes he made it safe and that an email was going to be sent to us with a picture and his address. So we waited and waited and finally today the email came, 3 days after he arrived. When Gary called them he was told by the very busy sounding older sister missionary who answered the phone that there had been MANY new missionaries that day, not just Grant and the 3 others from the Mexico MTC. We don’t know how many yet, that’s a question I’ll be asking Grant, but it must be the reason it took 3 days to send us information… right?
So here is the short but sweet email and a picture of my handsome boy. I have so many questions for him. Can’t wait for Monday!
Sister Ames and I want you to know that your missionary has arrived safely in Texas.
We look forward to serving together in accomplishing the Lord’s work. We hope you enjoy the attached picture of your missionary as well as knowing that the missionaries are in good hands here as they are in the Lord’s service.
Your missionary’s assignment will be in Haltom City, Texas. He will be serving with Elder Barnette.
Their apartment address is:
4808 Waldemar St. #128
Haltom City, TX 76117
Your missionary will email on Monday which is their preparation day. They are always
happy to hear from you. Thank you for your support.
President and Sister Ames”
