We received the following email from the mission president and his wife in Seoul Korea.
Hello from the Korea Seoul Mission! We are pleased to inform you that your missionary has arrived safely to the Korea Seoul Mission happy, healthy, and ready to perform the Lord’s work among his children in Korea. Thank you for preparing them so well!
Just a quick update regarding Jessica and her mission.
This morning at 5:30 AM we got a call from Jessica at the Salt Lake airport. She was just getting ready to board the plane to go to Seoul South Korea. She seemed in good cheer. She was traveling through Dallas Ft Worth and then directly on to Seoul. She will arrive around 3:00 PM on 7/30/2013. Which is about Midnight MST. A long flight of over 13 hours.
One bit of news which was interesting was that there were 31 missionaries on her flight! It is a large group of missionaries heading off to Korea today- although not all of them will stay in the Seoul Korea mission.
I expect Jessica will be jet-lagged and exhausted when she arrives and will probably shoot us off a short email when she gets there telling us how the flight went.
