Jantzen's p-day in the MTC was Wednesday. In California it is Monday. He flew out on Tuesday which means that we will go about two weeks before we'll hear from him. However, we have dear friends, Pam and Jay Robbins, who live in his mission boundaries. Turns out, the man in charge of apartments for the missionaries and the mission AP's live in Pam and Jay's ward! So, on Tuesday, Pam texted me to let me know that Jantzen had arrived and was assigned an area in Ontario, about 10 minutes away from the Robbins' home. Also, I received an email last night from Julia Hobbs, the mission president's wife. She also sent a photo of Jantzen with some missionaries in his mission. I will try to figure out how to post the picture!
Thank you all for your love and prayers on Jantzen's behalf.
From Sister Hobbs:
Dear Russell Family,
Elder Russell is here and he is safe! Know that he has a great companion. We are grateful you would share him with us.
