Hermana Reed sent us her first correspondence from the Mexico City Missionary Training Center! Typically this email is brief and simply to let those at home know she arrived safely. Luckily she shared a few fun insights to her first day!
"Hola mama y papa! Ive made it safely to the Mexico CCM. This place is so cool. It is literally in the middle of crazy city, crazy driving, and crazy people but I love it so much. The flight went really well and I didnt miss the flight. I sat next to this nice man named David who gave me lots of advice on Mexico and he took my notebook and wrote down all the important words I need to know. Seriously the nicest guy ever. Anyways I dont have much time, but know im alive and safe and could not be in a better place!! Thanks for being the best parents ever! I love you :)
ps Spanish keyboards are hard"
She'd love to hear from friends and family as she gets adjusted to her new world! ;)

Farewell Hermana Reed
The Sunday before Fallyn left for the MTC, friends and family joined to support and celebrate Fallyn's exciting journey ahead. Thank you to all who came and showed your love! Fallyn felt your support and especially your love, as did her family. Here's to the next 18 months of hearing all about Hermana Reed's exciting adventures learning Spanish, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, and serving the people of Federal Way! :)
