We were so happy to receive a text from Elder McEwan when he arrived in Georgia (from President Fussell's, Counselor in the Presidency, phone) . . .
Hi Momma! It's Elder McEwan. We landed and are going to the mission home right now. Love Everyone
Shortly after, President Fussell himself texted . . .
This is President Fussell. Thank you for your sacrifice in lending your son to us for 2 years!! May our Heavenly Father richly bless you for it.
Later an email from Sister Jensen, Mission Secretary . . .
This is just a short note to let you know that your missionary arrived in the Georgia Macon Mission safely. Today is such a long day for them that I will be sending out only a group photo today. You will receive an individual photo of your missionary with President and Sister Grayson. Everyone was in good spirits and anxious for dinner since they had been up since about 2 am already. Tomorrow they will find out where they are assigned and who their first companion in the field will be.
