The First Day of our Mission
We left the MTC on November 12, 2012. We drove to our son Alan's home in our truck and picked him up, then drove to the Salt Lake City Airport. We left Salt Lake City bound for San Francisco. From San Francisco we were on our 12 hour flight to Seoul. We arrived in Seoul on November 13, 2012 at 4:30 pm. We lost an entire day. The Assistant's to our Mission President were there to greet us. We then boarded a bus for Pyeongtaek. It was a two hour bus ride. From Pyeongtaek the Elders drove us in the mission van to the place we would be living for the next 23 months. We met Elder and Sister Echols. They are the senior missionaries we would be replacing. We stayed the night in the apartment, they stayed at a member families home. We met them the next morning at 9:00 am to get acquainted with them and Camp Humphrey's Army Post.
