We got a letter from Sean from the Mission Training Center (MTC) in Utah. He met with the Consul for Argentina on Tuesday and got his flight plans. Our baby boy (well, is 19 still considered a baby?) will be flying to Buenos Aires on Monday afternoon. He will be in Argentina for 22 months. We won't see him for two years, but he will get to call from Dallas, TX during his layover before the last leg of the flight to Buenos Aires. Then only email/letter contact once a week for the remainder of the two years. He will get to call us two times a year on Christmas and Mother's Day, so we will get 4 phone calls!
He is excited to serve a two year mission for our Church and has learned a lot of Spanish over the last two months in Utah. For his Mom and Dad, we feel Argentina is so far away, but we hear it is a beautiful country, with friendly people, delicious food, tango, gauchos, and awesome futbol.
Juan Miguel (Sean Michael) we wish you a safe journey. WE LOVE YOU !!!
