Safe Arrival

Hermana Kent departed from Salt Lake City International airport on November 3rd and arrived in Argentina safely on November 4th.  In speaking with her before she boarded the plane her family was relieved to hear the excitement in her voice.  Hermana Kent worried about becoming homesick before she left home, this has not been a problem for her.  She has had some more difficult days, but loved her MTC experience.  Her family waited impatiently for her call, and when asked what took her so long to call, her response was, "I was doing missionary work."  This response was reminiscent of the Savior responding to his parents when he was found in the temple that He was about His Father's work.  We (her parents) paged her several times to call the "white courtesy phone" several times.  We have not learned patience yet through her serving.  Hermana Kent never heard the pages.  She and Hermana House were engaged in a conversation with a young man who had a lot of questions about sister missionaries.  They were about their Father's work.

Missionaries see miracles!  The expectation for the luggage check-in fee was roughly $100.  None of the missionaries leaving yesterday morning were charged luggage fees and those whose luggage was over the weight limit were waved on through.  I don't know if this happens for every missionary, but Hermana Kent recognized the miracle in that moment.

President and Hermana Robertson sent an email assuring us of her safe arrival.  To a mother, there is no other relief.  We are grateful for her sacrifice, testimony, and dedication in serving the Lord, for she is about his work.
