It was a great morning today as we were able to talk to Jennifer on the phone while she waited and waited and waited at the Salt Lake Airport. She had to rise very early this morning since she left the MTC at 4:30. Although it makes no sense to me, she flew to Denver for a layover before traveling on to Ventura, California. Evidently, there was fog in Denver, so her flight from Salt Lake was delayed about an hour and a half. Luckily her flight to California was also delayed because they were waiting for a crew member to arrive. Needless to say, she will probably drop into bed tonight.
Jennifer sounded very happy and excited to start her adventure as a real missionary. She was amazed at how people in the airport were coming up and talking to them. She says, "I feel like a real missionary now!" Now that she is out among the people and being able to talk with them she believes real opportunities will arise. She is nervous about her Spanish, but I know that she will do a great job.
We will update her address as soon as we get it from her. Thank you to all who have written, sent packages and prayed for her. Your continued support is very much appreciated by her and us.
