Yippee! Today we received an e-mail from the wife of the MTC President. Thought we'd share:
Your son or daughter arrived here safely at the Brazil MTC this morning. They were greeted, and are now moving in and resting, and then they will have lunch. This afternoon they will attend an orientation meeting and meet with the doctor about immunizations, etc. Then they will go for a short walk around the neighborhood with a teacher. Tomorrow they will learn how to pray in Portuguese. The food here is very good. There are always two kinds of meat or chicken, a hot vegetable, beans and rice, fresh salad vegetables, a variety of fruit, a dessert, a popsicle, and lots of Brazilian juices and other drinks. They can eat all they want. We are so happy to have them here ready to serve and help the people of Brazil. It would be wonderful if you could pick them up at the end of their mission. You can then relate to them the rest of their life about their experiences here. It will be worth the time and expense. They will be able to e-mail you on either Tuesday or Wednesday which ever day is their P-day. They go to the temple that morning and e-mail you during the afternoon. Attached is the information for mailing letters and other mail to your missionary while he or she is at the MTC. Thank you for sharing them for this time. May you be blessed in their absence.
Love, Phyllis Cardon, wife of the MTC President
