A Burchett's Tale, Day 1

(Sarah at MTC, Provo Utah)

Roommate for the last 2 yrs)

affectionately termed Kentipoopi)
     Today, January 2nd, Sarah reported to the MTC (Missionary Training Center). She was accompanied by the Isaacson Family and is so excited to officially start her mission!
     Just to clear up a few things real quick.

     While on a mission it's true that communication is limited. However, once a week all missionaries have a preparation day (P-day) which is where they...get a few hours off, so to speak. This is when they also have to email the Mission leaders with their report of the week. During this time the missionary is encouraged to send an email home to their family. Missionaries can also write and receive letters at any time during the mission. Unfortunately, they are usually too busy to respond to each individual letter personally, but they LOVE to receive mail anyways. Lastly, they are permitted on Mother's Day and Christmas to call home, or Skype if they are close enough to a computer that is set up with that technology.
     We should be hearing from Sarah once a week through email and we already have a countdown to Mother's Day when we will get to hear her beautiful voice again!
