Letter From Rhys - Week #0 - Arrival

Greetings from the tropics!

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 hearing from me until then.  I’ll do my best to upload plenty of pictures.  We are still in Eastern Standard time zone, so we are only 2 hours ahead, however I don’t know if they participate in daylight savings, so come this fall I may be 3 hours ahead.

I must keep this brief but I’m glad to be here and I'm roomed with a couple of amazing elders. I even get my own desk!

Much Love to you all! 

Elder Wheeler

Airport Pictures!

Here are some pictures taken at the airport before Rhys left on Tuesday, August 15th.  His flight left at 11:55 p.m.

A fine group of missionaries all going to the MTC in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.  Most of this group is going to the Santo Domingo West mission, 4 are going to the Santo Domingo East mission, and 2 are going to Barbados.  This is NOT the entire group on the flight.  There were 20+ on the flight from SLC to JFK and on to the DR.

These missionaries are all headed for the Santo Domingo East mission once they're finished with their training in the MTC.

One last view as he heads off through security, with Elder Malone who is also going to the East Mission.

Another Wheeler Missionary Getting Ready to Leave

Rhys will report to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) in the Dominican Republic on Wednesday, August 16, 2017.  This blog is being switched over from Kelson to Rhys to show all the relevant information for Rhys' mission.

The emails and pictures received from Kelson will still be available on this page, but new content will be all about Rhys.

Stay tuned for pictures, letters, and stories of Shenanigans from the Caribbean.
