We just received the itinerary for your daughter, Hermana Syphus. She was almost breathless with excitement when I called to tell her the great news. What a cutie. We finally met her last week in Ephrata and took her and her companion to lunch. She is wonderful and we are sooooo sorry we are losing her. But, we are excited for her next adventure.
Note that the itinerary says: MISSIONARY WILL TRAVEL ON A TOURIST VISA – travel document, passport and visa receipt will arrive to the mission office via FedEx this
week. Missionary has been booked on the itinerary below to coordinate with other missionaries traveling on the same date.
That means that she will be a tourist (working as a missionary) and then her REAL visa will arrive before it expires. This is a pretty common practice and works well.
Let’s see . . . what else do we know. At first her itinerary had her traveling all that way alone. I’m a mom and I didn’t like that idea one bit. So, I changed it and now she will be traveling with THREE elders who will keep her safe and sound. It is a MUCH better plan.
If you have any questions, let me know! By the way, she said to tell you hello and that she loves you SO MUCH!
