Elder Wade heads to France as his MTC experience comes to a close.

Jesse arrived in France on Tuesday!!  We got to talk to him for a few minutes at the Salt Lake airport, and then again when he landed in Paris.  He sounds so great and excited!!  Here are a few photos from the airport in Utah.  He had some friends that were leaving on a trip and got to see him and sent us some pictures and a video of him bearing his testimony in French too.  He is a little nervous about the language and scared too, so that made me a little sad, but I know he will be comforted and will be great.  We got 2 emails from the secretary at the Mission home in Lyon.  The first is him with his Mission President and wife, Brother and Sister Roney.  They are from Provo Utah.  The second is a photo of Jesse and his companion Elder Boynton.   Elder Boynton is from England, but was born in Arizona Utah.  They will be serving in Nice which is right on the coast.  It is beautiful!!  I am including a map of where he is at.  We should hear form him hopefully next Monday.

The gift of tongues is real.  Jesse is learning French very quickly!
Jesse ran into some classmates from Davis at the airport on his way to France!

Dear Parents of Elder Wade,
We are happy to let you know your son arrived safely in Lyon this morning. He was met at the airport by President and Sister Roney. After arriving at the Mission Office he had lunch, his picture taken, took care of paperwork, and had an individual interview with President Roney. Tonight he will have dinner with President and Sister Roney as well as the other missionaries that arrived today. He will stay at the hotel in Lyon tonight. Tomorrow he will meet his new companion who will be his trainer. Then he will have training with President Roney and the Assistants to the President. After the short training he will leave with his companion to go to his first area. We will send you his address and companion’s name tomorrow.

Please see today’s photo in the attachments.
Thank you for sending us such a fine young man. We will take good care of him.
