Amber made it!!! I received a phone call about 8pm on Wednesday, July 31 from Sister Rahlf. (Wife of Amber’s Mission President) Amber arrived as expected in Cauayan on Tuesday. They sent me this email, but Amber gave them the wrong email address so it bounced back. Sister Rahlf called to let me know that everything was ok and to get the correct email. I was very relieved because I knew it had been more than a day since she should have gotten there. Anyway it was fun to talk to Sister Rahlf and know her a little bit! Thank you Sister Rahlf for calling. It was so wonderful to get news.

Dear Carr Family,
This morning we welcomed Sister Carr with open arms and grateful hearts to the beautiful Philippines Cauayan Mission. We wanted to let you know as soon as possible that she is safely here and already busy in the mission office and home preparing to enter the field with her new companion. We will send you additional information about her first area and companion quickly and you can expect your first email from her on Monday (or your Sunday, depending on time zone).
We hope your day is a wonderful one. Ours has been.
President and Sister Rahlf
“It’s a great day to be a missionary!”
