So, a wonderful sister in North Carolina, Sister Evans, sent me an e-mail on the day when Joe arrived in North Carolina!
"I'm a member of the church here in Raleigh, NC and I attended the
transfer meeting today. I met your son and I asked him for your e-mail
address so I could let you know that he is here safe and sound (and
smiling), and he has actually been assigned to my ward! He is now
serving with Elder Moore in the Raleigh 4th ward. We are so happy to
have him here and look forward to getting to know him on Sunday when he
is coming to have lunch with our family after Stake Conference. I'll
get a photo of him on Sunday with his new companion and e-mail it to
She sent me these pictures with his companion, Elder Moore.
I am thankful for wonderful people who help the missionaries throughout the nation and throughout the world. It is comforting to know that there are people watching out for my missionary!
Thank you Sister Evans!!!
