Mark and I received the best call possible tonight- Sister Tolman, called to let us know that Gator had arrived safely in Samoa!
The Elders were worn out, and Sister Tolman let us know that they slept at the mission home, with the lights on because they didn't know how to turn them off and were too tired to ask how.
We're so grateful to know that he's doing well, and "already loved" by Sister Tolman (her words). She also let us know that they were happy to have a fellow Arizonan and that they could tell he was a hard worker and ready to get started.
Gator will be serving in Upolu. This is the main island--but he will be sent to the "back-side" which Sister Tolman said is fairly primitive--although not as much as Savai'i.
Can't wait to get his first letter!!
