10/1/14 - Arrived in Mada!!

Elder Mack left the MTC Monday morning September 29 and arrived in Madagascar Wednesday, October 1 in the afternoon.  We received the email below from the mission home this morning.  Included was a great picture with the Mission President and his wife.  It was a loooooong 3 days for Elder Mack and his district of twelve elders.  They were flying for about 26 hours total and waiting in airports for about 13 hours.  We got to talk with Elder Mack at each of his layovers.  It brought tears to my eyes to hear his voice.  He sounded so excited to finally be going to Madagascar.  His P-days will be on Monday there.  We can't wait to hear all about Madagascar.  We are in for an adventure! -Mama Mack   
Dear Mack Family,
We want you to know that Elder Mack and all of the missionaries from the Provo MTC arrived in Madagascar safely yesterday afternoon.  All of their luggage arrived with them!  They are all doing well.  They had a good night sleep and are ready for training, to meet their new companions today, and go to the areas where they will be serving. 
Elder Mack will be serving in Fianarantsoa North in the Antsirabe District and his trainer will be Elder Lehr.
Elder Mack is going to be a great missionary!  We are excited that he is here to serve the wonderful people of Madagascar.

Kimo found his trainers blog page -  Our Spencer likes that his name is also Spencer.  He sounds like he's going to be a great trainer.

  1. Mama Mack, Thank you for contacting us and giving us your son's blog info. We are excited for Elder Mack to be Elder Lehr's "mission son." They just added two more elders to the Fianarantsoa North area this transfer. So there will be six elders there now. Elder Lehr and Elder Mack will get the new or split area that hasn't been worked before. It will be an adventure for them. I am sure that your son is going to be an awesome missionary and add much to the work there in Madagascar. I noticed that your son loves to sing. He and Elder Lehr have that in common. The UVU Institute choir sang at Conference the April after he went into the MTC. He was disappointed that he didn't get to participate. Sounds like Elder Mack barely missed his opportunity to sing in conference as well. Hopefully they will have opportunities to share their musical talents in Madagascar. I look forward to reading about Elder Mack's adventures and experiences. Thank you again for letting us know who are son's companion is. :)
