We had a couple of challenges with Carl's flight yesterday, but he has made it safely to Santo Domingo and looks very happy. His preparation day is Thursday for now and they ask that no packages are sent to Carl while in the MTC. His mission address is included on the blog. If you wish to send something please send it there. Also, there are international taxes that he has to pay to pick up packages so it is better if they are lighter weight. I will include a part of a letter from his mission president regarding packages and letters to help everyone have a better experience with all of that.Thanks again for your love and support as Carl begins this part of his life. God Speed son.
