Elder Payne has arrived in the Micronesia Guam Mission!

Jeff is in Guam!  We thought he was going to fly out on Wednesday January 15th, but never heard any details from Jeff.  A call to the MTC Travel office let us know that he left the MTC at 5am this morning (at least that's what they said).  With a little detective work on the Internet, if had a pretty good idea he was supposed to fly out of Los Angeles International Airport at 12:30 today, connect to a different flight in Tokyo, Japan before arriving in Guam.

When we received our US Mail we found a letter from Jeff that included the itinerary for his trip.  HE FLEW OUT YESTERDAY!!

The mission president called us this evening to let us know that Jeffery arrived safe and sound at about 1am Guam time.  Tomorrow he joins his companion, Elder Peck, and flies to Chuuk. He will live in the town of Nechap.

We will have to rely on 'snail mail' since they have very limited Internet on the island.  Since Jeffery seems to prefer hand writing his letters, it should work out fine for him.

He did include some pictures from the MTC.  Below is one of his MTC District.

Here is a Google Maps link to the Chuuk islands.  Nechap is on one of the Eastern islands of the group.

  1. Hi..I just found this blog. My son is also serving in Chuuk. I was surprised when I saw the above picture of your sons MTC District. The young lady, 2nd from the left is Sis Sunday. She is serving in the Sydney Australia Mission--but while she was waiting for her VISA she lived with us here in Boise! We house sister missionaries. What a surprise to see her in the picture with your son!
