Chicago, Here I come!


Elder Herdt called this morning from the airport in SLC on his way to the Chicago West Mission.  The Chicago Mission was split July 1st and he will be in the first group of missionaries to be added to the mission.  There were 38 missionaries flying to Chicago today which I assume will be split between the 2 missions.  He said that many of the missionaries were Spanish speaking.  He enjoyed his time in the MTC and had many spiritual experiences and revelation.  Kind of like EFY on mega steroids!  Everyday was jam-packed---no time to get home sick.  Looking forward to the 2 year journey.  Wish we could have chatted longer but he was sharing a phone card with 2 other elders.  Only 15 mins:(
