Here is the letter from the mission home the day she got there:
Dear Brother and Sister Johanson,
Your daughter has arrived at the Mission Home, has been well fed, and will sleep at the home of a nearby member (who loves to pamper sister missionaries) tonight. Attached, as “proof of life” is a snapshot of your tired but excited missionary with President and Sister Strong. Tomorrow morning, she will receive her (prayerfully considered) first assignment, then one of the mission vans will transport her to her first location! She will be able to email you on Monday with her new address. Let me reassure you that President Strong assigns his best missionaries as trainers, so your daughter will have a cream-of-the-crop companion.
You’re welcome to call or email me with any concerns. Meanwhile, we invite you to join the Arkansas Bentonville Mission – For Friends and Family Facebook Group, where you can watch for future photos of your missionary!
Secretary, Arkansas Bentonville Mission
