He's Finally in Lithuania - June 8, 2010

We were able to speak to James on the phone from the airport (Washington D.C.) for an hour or so (in case you're wondering, it cost about $80 from the pay phone using his debit card). He talked to his mom a couple of times, but had to recall because of a bad connection. He sounded good and excited to be on his way out of the country - though he expressed some nervousness about being able to understand the people when he got there.

We received the email and photo below Tuesday afternoon from the mission president, letting us know that our missionary arrived safe and sound - and to his mother's relief - his luggage made it just fine.

Dear Family,

Your missionary made it to the Baltic Mission safe and sound.  Attached is a picture taken at the Riga Airport just after they landed.  They all look great and arrived without incident.  They spent a few hours this afternoon talking with people on the street and sharing their testimonies.  We had dinner and a testimony meeting at the mission home and then put them all to bed.  They will have some training in the morning and then leave mid-day with their companion to their new area.  We will have the office send you the details of where they are serving and some information about the mission.  You can expect them to email you next Monday on their preparation day.  

Thank you for your trust and confidence in sending your missionary to us.  We love them and are excited to work with them in sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Warmest Regards,
President and Sister Dance
Baltic Mission
