Puerto Rico San Juan

On September 14, 2013 I received my call to serve as a Mission Nurse Specialist in the Puerto Rico San Juan Mission for a period of 18 months. I am always up for a new adventure and look forward to sharing my journey with you.

Safe arrival!

I arrived safely in San Juan Puerto Rico!  The MTC shuttle driver picked me up at the Residence Inn at 2:30am Friday morning.  I arrived at the SLC airport at 3:15am and noticed that the American Airlines counter did not open till 4:15.  Oh, well...it gave me time to weigh my bag and shift a little bit over to the other suitcase so they each weighed less than 50#.  I caught a 6:15am flight to Dallas....2 hr layover...4 hr flight to San Juan.  Brother and Sister Patterson picked me up at the Airport and brought me to their apartment.  I will stay here until an apartment is located for me.  We looked a one which would be great, but need to get the owner to agree to a short term lease.  There are several Senior couples leaving by May/June, so there will be a choice of unexpired lease apartments to choose from.  There is no indication of any new couples.  The area reminds me of El Paso in some respects, so not unfamiliar.  I will pick up my car tomorrow...have the keys already.....2013 Chevy Cruze - not too shabby!  The Mission President is discontinuing cars and bicycles for most of the mission so the missionaries are more among the people.  I will go to a Spanish ward tomorrow with the Pattersons.  No more news for now...will update more next week!
