Leaving the MTC for Salt Lake City

Yesterday I got a text from a neighbor saying he had seen Gabe with a group of missionaries on the FrontRunner train.  Last night we got this email and photos from the Salt Lake East mission president:

Dear Parents
Your missionary arrived safe and sound in the Utah Salt Lake City East Mission.  They take the Front Runner in from the MTC.  We welcome them, photograph them and get their luggage.  After breakfast and orientation we had a wonderful transfer meeting and training.  Please know that we will take care of your child as if they were our own.  We are excited for this new adventure in their lives and want it to be positive for them.  Please write to them weekly and encourage them to be obedient.
Thank you

President and Sister Eberhardt

Good luck in Salt Lake, Gabe! You are so close but so far.  I hope your few weeks in the Salt Lake East Mission will be a great learning experience.
