A kind man that was on the FrontRunner from Provo to SLC this morning took this picture of Alex on his way to the SLC airport. He got up for the day at 2 am and was on the FronRunner at 3:30 am. We just got to talk to him for a bit while he was in between flights. He said he was super tired but SO excited!!! He LOVED every minute at the MTC and is thrilled to be heading to where the Lord has called him to serve. He arrives in Bucharest, Romania in 23 hours!
Even a little video of him speaking some fancy Romanian - sounds a bit like Japanese to me!
Five days later...
Best way to wake up in the morning!!! We FINALLY heard from the mission office that Alex made it to Romania. He is serving in the city Arad, Romania which is close to the Hungarian and Serbian border. From a quick google search it looks like it would have been a ten hour train ride from where Alex flew in in Bucharest. So I imagine he feels a bit like a train wreck.:This picture is with his mission president and companion (I think). Alex looks a bit like a giant! Can't wait to get our personal letter from Alex on Monday.
