We just received a quick email from Sara letting us know that she has arrived safely. She is with a group of 7 sisters (the term for women in our church) and 3 elders (the term for the men missionaries), who all met up with her in Los Angeles. She is happy. Her only comments were
1 - the streets are narrow and she was nervous riding to the CCM (the place where she will be for 6 weeks as she learns the language and customs)
2 - the chefs want you to eat ALL the food they put on your plate :)
3 - Her companion (she will have a companion 24/7 for the next 18 months) is currently Sis Fraga
4 - the strawberries are good.
Her p-day (preparation day - the day when she will have time to email a little) will be Wednesday so I will post her letter, in her words, next week.
