1 Nephi 3:7 "...I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them."

Welcome to the San Fernando, California Mission

We finally got the letter from Jordan's mission president saying that he had arrived safely.  It included a photo of Elder Parkinson with President Martin and Sister Martin.  Jordan looks so happy and also tall :)  The letter also included a paper entitled "My First Letter Home from the Mission Field."  I think Jordan filled this out the day he got to California.

 Such a good looking Elder :)

 Hey, just sitting in Cali.  It is great.  I love it out here and I have one problem, they don't have my dmv driving record on hand.  Um, I love it so much and am so happy that I got called to serve here.  The mission president is so cool.  I don't know who my companion is yet.  I tried to call Austin (from the airport) but his voice mailbox was not set up.  The weather is so nice.  I am safe and sound.  I know that time is going to fly by here.  I love you all so much.
-Elder Parkinson
Never mind on the dmv.  They made a mistake.

Justin made sure to point out the second to last paragraph to me. 
 NO visiting him, even if we happen to be in California :(

  1. I love it. Bummer, now you can't say you weren't told about calling or bumping into Elder Parkinson! ;)
