Safely Arrived

Editors Note:  Elder Neuberger left the MTC on Tuesday, July 15, 2014.  He flew out of Salt Lake to Los Angeles, departing at 6:00pm.  From Los Angeles they flew Cathay Pacific Airlines to Hong Kong (14.5 hours), and from Hong Kong they flew Dragon Air to Phnom Penh (2.5 hours), arriving at 10:25 am local time.  In total it took them 27.5 hours from the time they left Salt Lake.  

This is the note we received from Elder Neuberger when he arrived at the mission home:

Hey I made it! Its been crazy! Went straight from the airport to the market to contact for an hour! Way fun! In the mission home for training right now. Love yall! Email yall soon!

We also received a letter from his mission president (with a few more details):

Dear Brother & Sister Neuberger,

We are excited to welcome your son to the Cambodia Phnom Penh Mission!  He arrived safely here today after their long flight and travel.  After their group arrived at the airport we took them to a local market where they were paired with a more experienced missionary and they had an opportunity to do some contacting—their first proselyting experience here in Cambodia.  They loved being able to try out their new language skills and do some real missionary work.  After a lunch with us at the mission home we spent the afternoon providing orientation, instructions, and having interviews with the mission president.  They will sleep here at the mission home tonight—after dinner we sent them off to bed—they were tired and ready after their long travel and full day here!  Tomorrow they will meet their new trainer and companion, and head out to their assigned areas.  Hopefully you should receive a short e-mail from them letting you know they are here safe.

We are so grateful for your sacrifice in letting your son serve and know it will be a great blessing to him and to your entire family.  We will do our very best to keep him safe and well.  If you have ever have any concerns or questions please know that you can always contact us using the information below.  Packages and letters for him can also be sent to the address below.  We encourage our missionaries to send you an e-mail each Monday, their preparation day.  Thank you for sharing your wonderful son with us!

Best gospel wishes,

President David C. Moon & Sister Kathryn T. Moon
