James would like to thank all the family and friends that have been so supportive of his decision to serve a mission. He left today at 4:40. His first flight is to Detroit and then on to Sao Paulo. He should arrive at 7:40 tomorrow morning.
James asked me to share a link to a website that will deliver mail to missionaries while they are in the Missionary Training Center. This service delivers to MTC's all over the world. I believe the Provo MTC and some others are free. There is a nominal fee for Brazil, but missionaries get mail within days, not weeks. http://www.dearelder.com/
