Lima MTC or Bust!

 Will left for the Lima, Peru MTC at 6:30 in the morning from St. George!  It was great to only have to travel across town, as he would meet up with other missionaries in SLC and Atlanta.  He was excited and ready to start his new adventure!   Rachel and I were a little less excited, but we know he is going to be a
 Great Warrior for the Lord!

 There were many tender mercies that day!  When he boarded the plane, some dear friends were on board and Lisa Thorpe texted me that she would take care of my baby for at least the first leg!
We also received an email from G!!! The "Chapas" were posted and they were ready and waiting for my son!  He's in great hands- I know!

There were 22 missionaries on his flight from Atlanta to Lima.  They got in late and he emailed this morning! He said that the MTC was smaller than he expected and that there are a lot of rules!  :)  I am sure there are many things to adjust to!  Will said he is in a threesome companionship for now and that all the missionaries he traveled with were really cool.  No pics from the MTC and he didn't mention when his P-day is!  Guess we will patiently wait for his next email. My boy is in PERU!!!!

    We've arrived in a foreign land. The people appear to be friendly, although there are a lot of mysterious rules to follow...

    So glad he made it!! Please post his address
