Elder Yeoman and 13 other missionaries departed for Buenos Aires today (Monday, September 7th)! We were so blessed to be able to talk to him in both the SLC and Atlanta Airports. We especially enjoyed hearing him share his testimony of our Savior, Jesus Christ with us in Spanish. We were amazed! He has really enjoyed his six weeks in the MTC and couldn't say enough about how much he has learned and grown from his experiences there. He said, "it went by so fast!!" He also made so many great friends that became like brothers to him. Elder Yeoman is prepared and ready to get into the mission field and begin his work with the wonderful people in Argentina. He knows without a doubt that he is where he should be and can't wait to teach and serve for the next 22 months. He will arrive in Buenos Aires around 9:10am on Tuesday morning and I will update the blog as soon as I hear from him. I am so grateful that Elder Farnsworth's sweet mom sent these pictures of Elder Yeoman to me from the SLC Airport this morning. He sure looks happy! We love Elder Yeoman so much and will miss him every single day that he is away, but are so proud of him and so grateful for his desire to teach, love and serve the people of Argentina.
Elder Yeoman's email address and mission office mailing address is listed here on the blog. He has been overwhelmed with all of the love he has received from soooo many friends and family members during the past 6 weeks. It means the world to him. When I find out the address of his first area, I will post it here also. Meanwhile, feel free to send letters through email or directly to the mission office.
