I flew to McAllen, Texas early this morning!  We had to be packed and on the airport-bound bus by 3:00 a.m.  I had planned to call my family between 4:30 and 5:00 a.m. from the Salt Lake International Airport, but the payphones were "crazy busy" with other missionaries calling home.  I decided to wait and call my home during a layover a few hours later.  Sister Perez and I were the only ones in our MTC District going to McAllen, so we kept each other company during our two flights.  Of interest, the airlines did not charge us for our baggage.  I had planned to spend $50 - $60 on baggage fees, but they were waived!! 

I arrived in McAllen around 2:00 p.m.  I am so excited to be here!


  1. Glad to hear you are there, and I know you are ready to serve the Lord!

  2. Welcome to warm TX.....good luck
