We received this letter from George Groberg, Leah's mission president for the next year and a half. He sent it the day after Leah arrived in Jakarta, and included a few pictures:
Hello Brother and Sister Blake, March 25, 2011
Greeting from Indonesia!Our new group of missionaries is here. Sister Blake arrived safely.
The first afternoon the new missionaries went out with the office elders to do a little proselyting and shopping. Then we had a dinner at the mission home. Following a night’s rest, interviews and some training they have been temporarily assigned to companions in the Jakarta area pending work visas.
We are thrilled to have Sister Blake serving here with us. Indonesia is a challenging mission and quite an adjustment at the start but we know that she will rise to the challenge. We love these missionaries and will do all we can to keep them safe, healthy and happy in their service to the Lord here.
We thank you for preparing and sending her.
The pictures were taken on arrival at the mission home and then during their first authentic Indonesian lunch.
President and Sister Groberg
