He's in Mexico!
We heard from Elder Anderson last Friday, the 1st. We had a whirlwind, crazy 4 minute conversation. He told us he received his visa and was leaving Monday morning for Mexico City. We heard from him again Monday just before he got on the plane - another whirlwind, crazy 4 minute conversation. Then, we received an email Monday night from him. Here's his email and his mission president's email as well along with some pictures of Elder Anderson and his trainer, Elder Cardona. We are so excited for him!
Just so everyone knows... I am in Mexico. I am not dead on the side of the road. Everything is fine! So far Mexico is crazy. I will explain more later. I can't believe how polluted it is here, and how crazy the roads are. I will email officially next Monday. My mission president and his wife are great. Just wanted to let you know I'm fine!
Dear Brother and Sister Anderson,
We have sent you a picture of your son as he arrived here in our mission. He looks good and is happy to be here. We are very grateful to have him as well. We have also included a picture of your son with his trainer, Elder Cardona. We will strive in every way to support, sustain and train your son so that this will be a life changing experience that will help him to grow spiritually, help him to adjust to the culture and deepen his desire to always be obedient with exactness. Thank you for raising such a good young man.
President and Sister Hicken
