Week #3

Dear Parents,

We are happy to let you know your son arrived safely in Geneva today.  President and Sister Murdock met the missionaries at the airport and brought them to the Mission Home.  After having lunch the missionaries had an interview with President Murdock and then learned about mission finances and their visas.  Tonight he will have dinner with President and Sister Murdock.  Tomorrow he will meet his companion/trainer and then will have training with President Murdock and the Assistants to the President.  After the training he and his companion will board a train to travel to his first area.

Thank you for sending us such a fine young man.

Sister Todd, Mission Secretary
France Lyon Mission

Elder Ioannidis has been assigned a wonderful trainer/companion, Elder Wahlquist.  Attached you will find a picture of them together.  They are serving in Toulouse, France.  If you or anyone you know will be sending a Christmas package to your missionary please send it to his apartment address.

There is a Mission blog that is updated at each transfer.  You can follow the mission happenings there.  The address is:   http://switzerlandgenevamission2009-2012.blogspot.com/ (it carries the name of our mission before it was consolidated on July 1)

We are grateful to have your wonderful son in our mission!

With Warmest Regards,
Sister Todd, Mission Secretary
France Lyon Mission
