|President and Sister Ames with our Elder Anders|
"Sister Ames and I want you to know that your missionary has arrived safely in Texas."
So begins an email sent to Anders' parents from his Mission President and his wife dated Friday the 13th. It's a relief to know that he is finally safely in the mission field.
Elder Anders is currently serving in the tiny town of Mexia (pronounced Me-HAY-a), Texas in the Ft. Worth mission boundaries. He writes, "The mission goes well. Mexia is a really cool place."
He adds, "One thing I've found is that we do a lot of service here in the mission." That sounds like a recipe for success anywhere.
Look out, Mexia! Our Elder Anders is coming soon to a home near you!
