"Greetings from Tacloban!
I have been here for about 4 hours and I love it already. It isn't as hot here as manila, there is less traffic, and people are very friendly. President Maurer and Sister Maurer (pronounced Mora, like hill cumorah) are the greatest people I have ever met. I don't have long today, just as email to say that I am here safe and sound. tomorrow, I meet my trainer, and the work begins. My new p-day is monday, so that is how that is it is now. Love you, and I will talk with you more monday.
So good to see he made it! I am most grateful to hear that his mission President and wife are "the greatest people I have ever met" - as they will be his temporary parents and it sounds like Blake is in good hands!! From here on out, this blog will be updated every Monday! We look forward to hearing of B's many adventures! If you receive any letters that you would like to share - please forward them to me and we will post them here for us all to enjoy!! WE LOVE YOU BLAKE!!
