Devon's First Adventure - The Trip to India

Elder Jenks and his 13 "Batch Mates" headed off to the SLC Airport at 6 am, Monday morning. Their flight left around 9 am. After a stop in Chicago, IL., they arrived in Fankfurt, Germany around 8 am Frankfurt time. The missionaries were allowed one call home during their flight; Devon called us just after midnight MST from Germany. It was great to hear his voice. He was very tired and a bit nervous about being so far from home. He was able to get some sleep on the third leg of his flight, thanks to Uncle Fred, and disembarked just after midnight on Wednesday morning in Bangalore, India.

The missionaries were greeted at that early hour by President and Sister Nichols. They were farmed out to Zone Leaders' apartments for about 4 hours of sleep on the floor and then gathered up again for a home cooked breakfast prepared by Sister Nichols.
His trainer is Elder Hansen from Las Vegas, NV and they will be serving in Coimbatore Branch in Coimbatore.

We are happy and relieved that he has arrived and all is fine.
