"Dear Families of the New Missionaries of the Belgium Netherlands Mission:
Your missionary has arrived safely and is now out in the mission field living the life of a missionary."
These words were a perfect compliment to the calming spirit I felt as Zuster Watts traveled to the Netherlands. We got to talk to her on the phone in Salt Lake City and while she waited to board her flight from Detroit. She sounded very happy and content. We asked her all of our questions and then thought of more. She just wanted to hear about what we are up to.
The blessings of technology allowed us to conference call with siblings who were not at home. We are grateful that the Lord inspired people, who probably didn't even realize it, to invent these amazing technologies that can take the Gospel to all the earth and let families connect as well.
We followed the missionary flight all the way from Detroit to Schipole Airport. The plane flew faster than predicted so all of you praying "God speed" must have worked. They arrived there Tuesday morning just after 7:30 a.m. I watched the cartoon plane land safely and felt my heart swell with gratitude and love.
She spoke of the need for letters to support them over the next 18 months to two years. Please feel free to mail Zuster Watts positive and uplifting messages at:

Sister Robinson posted this when a previous missionary was called to serve in Amsterdam: "To serve in Amsterdam is a dream of many missionaries!" Zuster Watts will begin her missionary service with that dream. Whew, now Back to Work.
