Letter from Mission President and Pics in Germany

Christi's mission president sent the following email and pictures to Christi's mom.  I guess this verifies that she is really there:

Dear Sister Anderson,

Your daughter, Sister Christi Jones, arrived safely on 28th of May here in Hamburg . Although she was very tired when we picked her up at the airport, we felt of her great spirit. She then traveled to the Elbe river where we ate lunch and had some orientation. She then arrived here at the mission home for a little rest, a nice meal and a testimony meeting, in German. We then sent her to bed for a well-deserved rest.

The next morning we had some training before she received her new assignment. Her new companion, Sister Welch, came to pick your daughter up and take her to Bielefeld . We have very carefully chosen those to train our new missionaries and we know that your daughter will have a great training experience with Sister Welch.

Sister Thompson and I deeply appreciate your faith in sending your daughter on a mission and we will care for her as if she were our own daughter for the next two years.

P-day is on Mondays for the Hamburg Mission so you may wish to write your e-mail on Sunday evening so that she can read and answer it Monday morning.

Attached are a few photos of your daughter with us and also your daughter with her new companion.

Please feel free to contact us at any time with any issues or concerns.

With our warmest wishes,

President Wesley B. Thompson
Sister Rebecca L. Thompson

Hi, I stumbled across this site and thought I should post something. My name is Jason Hafer and I was one of the missionaries that picked Sister Jones up from the airport and welcomed her to the greatest mission in the world. It really is the best mission ever and I really miss it since being home.
She was really excited to be there - part of one of the most excited groups of missionaries I have ever seen and was sent to one of the greatest cities ever - Bielefeld. I served there for 6 months and loved every minute of it. She was doing great when I left and the ward and other missionaries loved her. She was always extremely happy and everyone loved her smile and positive presence.

Well, have a great time Sister Jones! Keep up the good work and enjoy every minute of it!
