Lauren's brother Clark, who works in the Missionary Training Center, was able to go in with Lauren and see that she got settled. What a great and tender mercy! He was also able to see her with her new companion and texted us this picture.
Lauren's cousin Greg is going to Oklahoma and entered the MTC one week before Lauren. In his letter home to his parent this week he wrote,
"I haven't seen Lauren quite yet but i snuck up
to her room last night to see her and she was in a zone meeting. i saw her
through the window but she didn't see me. She looked very attentive and
excited! Can't wait to see her. Her companion also looked excited."
It is so great just hear anything about her. We can't wait for our first letter from her.
