Elder Pack Heading Out!!!!

Reggie began his journey to the Baltics today. He flew out this morning. He has a layover in Chicago and Germany and then lands in Riga, Latvia tomorrow morning. It was so cool because Phil was able to see him at the airport. He was heading out on a business trip to Missouri at the same time but we didn't know Reggie's flight plans when Phil scheduled his flight. When Reggie sent us his plans we were so excited. He was able to give him big hugs from us, spend some time with him and snatch a quick picture of him as he boarded the plane. We have talked to him a couple of times today for about 5 - 10 minutes each. We are hoping to get one more call from him late tonight when he has a layover in Germany. He sounds so good. He even bore his testimony in Russian and it sounded awesome!!! We love and miss him so much. We are excited to experience his mission with him over the next couple of years. Thanks for your example Reg!
