Jonna arrived in Texas!

We got a surprise phone call from Jonna yesterday morning about 7:45 am.  She had told us she wasn't going to call home from the airport...why was I surprised when she decided to surprise us?? I should have known she wanted to surprise us...again!  It was fantastic talking to her, even if it was for a few short minutes.  A.J., Addie and I were the only ones home, so we each talked with her briefly. She had a few minutes to express a sweet testimony of her experience at the MTC, and was anxious to write home about it.  We said our "I love you's", and then she called John at work and talked with him for a few minutes.  I'm so glad she called...it was great hearing her voice again.
Then today we got an email from her mission president with the following pictures and letter:
Jonna flew over with these 8 Elders from the MTC.

Jonna with Pres. & Sis. Crawford
Texas Houston East Mission President
Excerpt of email we got from Pres. & Sister Crawford today:
"Dear Families,
Your Missionary has arrived safely to T.H.E. Mission! They were treated to a great Texas BBQ, had personal interviews, and shared testimonies. The following morning was focused on training after which they met their new companion and were transported to their area of service. They are now out diligently searching for our Heavenly Father's children and doing the work of the Lord..."

We still don't know where Jonna is, but anticipate an email in the next few days.  We'll keep you posted.
