Sami called from Santiago

We finally got a call from Sami at 4:30am this morning (7:30 am Santiago time) from the Santiago airport.

We had known there were plane problems in SLC - but Sami said that they arrived at LAX 2 hours late and barely made the flight to Santiago. Since their original plane from SLC did not take off, they were moved to other planes - some of the missionaries in her original group were sent through Dallas instead of LAX.  Sami and her MTC companion, Hermana McDaniels, were the only two sisters going to Chile - but they did not fly together since they are going to different missions. Sami had 2 elders from her MTC district as companions. On the flight to LAX she started talking to the man sitting next to her and learned that he was a General Authority - a member of the Seventies in Chile who had come to SL for conference. On the flight to Santiago she sat by an elderly man who spoke no English - so that was an interesting experience for her.

We are now looking forward to her first email from the mission field on her P-day next Monday.
