E-mail just came in from Elder Vester - he made it to Vitoria! Actually he got there yesterday. It isn't as good as an email from him but it puts my mind at ease to know that he arrived safely.
Now let the work begin!
Here is the e-mail tha I just received:
We are very grateful to have Elder Vester with us in the Brazil Vitória Mission. He arrived yesterday from the CTM in São Paulo. Although a little tired due to an early plane flight, he was anxious to begin his service in the mission field. After a session of training, we met in our home for lunch and an afternoon interview. Attached is a picture taken in the mission home. Once again, it was a pleasure getting to know your son and we look forward to serving with him as we invite others to come unto Christ and enjoy the blessings of the gospel. If in the future you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
President and Sister Araujo
