First Letter and First Email

Rilla went to the mailbox this morning and found Jaron's first letter home from Brazil. She called me while I was driving to work and read it to me (and yes there were tears involved!) Then later this morning she received his first real email.

Jaron is doing great in Brazil. He says he is starting to recognize some of the language and getting settled in. The humidity has been bothering him but he is getting used to it now. Jaron was grateful for all the notes and letters we hid in his lugguage.

Jaron Assigned to his District

Jaron was assigned to his new district. We received this image from Sister Lewis (his branch president's wife) on March 27th. Jaron's branch president is Elder Lewis.

Jaron Arrives in Brazil

Jaron left home on March 23, 2010 for his mission in Brazil. He has been called to serve in the Brazil, São Paulo Interlagos Mission. He first flew to Dallas and then a 10 hour flight to São Paulo.

They do not look very tired for people that flew throughout the night.
