[No letter from L this week since she was traveling on Monday and that is her Prep Day (and emailing day) for the rest of her mission. She did get to call home, however; since the rest of the missionaries had been able to chat with their families from the airport and she hadn’t been able to because the payphones restricted international calls, her mission president invited her to call and chat for a few minutes from his home when she arrived. She sounded fantastic. The next day we received an email from President Cottle about L’s assignment.
She’s in the Flat Rock area of the Columbus Georgia zone, which is on the Chattahoochee River on the border between Georgia and Alabama. Fort Benning is in that zone and, since she grew up attending a ward that included an Air Force base, we imagine that it’ll be a great fit for her first area.]
