Hermana Hoth with President & Sister Burt
Hermana Hoth with her new companions & her mission president and his wife ~Sister Burt, Hermana Cobb, Hermana Hoth, Hermana Johnson (trainer), President Burt~
April 1st was Emily's travel day--no foolin'! She had to wake up at 2 a.m. Then they caught the bus at 3 a.m. The bus took them to the frontrunner station and then they rode that into Salt Lake (North Temple) where they caught TRAX to get to the airport.  Emily had all of her Spanish books in her carry on shoulder bag and it was really, really heavy. Then with her other two big suitcases to manage that weren't wheeling very well (probably way overloaded, actually 45 and 52 pounds so not too bad, but for a tiny thing like Em??, well . . . ) - YIKES - she said it was quite a struggle!! YES, she was able to call us from the airport! It was so awesome to hear her voice! We could tell she was exhausted.  She told us some of the First Vision in Spanish--she sounded good to us! Bueno! Emily said that when they left the MTC on the bus, that her and Sister Wilson looked at each other and said, we don't even know how to speak Spanish what are we doing?? She will really miss serving with Hermana Wilson--they have become really good friends which is such a blessing.  We are thinking they will probably end up serving together again at some time though since there are very few sisters who speak Spanish in the mission! One of the Assistants to the President (who happened to have just served with Elder Kitchen who is in our ward) called us Wednesday night to let us know she arrived safely and all was well.  He said President and Sister Burt already really love her! (Of course, right!!) Last night we received an email from President Burt which included these pictures.
