We finally got word that Elder Derek made it to Korea! He looks safe, happy & ready to get to work.
We enjoyed very much talking to him on the phone, Monday, September 30, in the morning from SLC & then in the afternoon from Detroit. He got to fly from Detroit to Inchon, Korea, flying over to north pole or near it. (Long 22 hours of travel).
He reached his goal to place a Book of Mormon with one of the other missionaries while on the layover in Detroit. We LOVE our Missionary^^!
