WE'RE OFF TO CEBU...

Tuesday evening of this week, we were thrilled to receive a call from our boy.  He was waiting at the SanFrancisco International Airport with 8 other missionaries.  Our conversation was so full of joy and excitement, and to be honest--a few tears. 

He sounded happy.  He sounded excited.  He sounded READY.  They were to fly through the night, arriving in Hong Kong the next morning and then in Cebu before noon on the 30th.  We should hear from him again on Wednesday.  His first meeting in the Philippines was reported to be a mission-wide conference with one of our Apostles, David A. Bednar-- WHAT A WELCOME!!

On Thursday afternoon, we received a big box of things Sumner sent home from the MTC.  Among the piles of letters from so many of you (thank you! thank you! thank you!) were these pictures taken during his last week at the training center in Provo, UT.  I wish I could post the video he sent of his district standing in a circle and singing in their new language,  "GOD BE WITH YOU 'TIL WE MEET AGAIN."  (Can't watch that one without a big box of tissue).

Thank you all for following and writing Sumner.  We feel your love and support, as he does.

Warm regards,  J
