This is my email notifying you that I have successfully and
safely arrived at the CCM and am looking forward to learning much and getting
some SLEEP! I could not sleep at all on the flights (no surprise) but all
is well and I can still last the next few hours before lights out.
P-Days start on Thursday of next week, so you won’t be

Any peoples desiring to be at the airport to visit with him when he walks out of the terminal must arrive at the airport promptly at 10:00 pm to be blessed by his presence and be given the opportunity to hug him before his mother...hahaha
If you don't wish to be a part of this, or find yourselves without the ability of doing so, please send hugs via the internet, or text message, or Facebook and they will be received with open arms and loving hearts.
Those who decide that party pooping is their job and must not do any of the previously stated activities that are given for your profit and learning, will be given a handshake and a "how do you do".
