Erika finally made it...

I'm alive....barely :) So as I'm sure you probably saw, my Vancouver flight did not go so well. Long story short, my 16 hour trip turned into 25 hours, and my flight schedule got changed 5 times! Fun!! I can now safely say that I'm a pro flier now! In a nut shell, I got stranded in Minneapolis (they couldn't reschedule my ticket from Chicago to England, because that ticket was with American 1st two flights were Delta flights). Heavenly Father sent me an angel though, who pulled some strings to get me on a plane (even though I wasn't supposed to be put on one). So I went from Min to Chicago, to London, to Manchester; now I'm here!

I'll tell you more on P-day (Wednesday). Already love it here! So excited.

Love you,



  1. I am glad you are safely there Erika, sorry I couldn't make it to your family going away party... I remember when you were a little girl, I always knew you would become a missionary, you have great parents.. Love you lots! God Bless you & Take care of you on your mission!
    Love, your friend, Sister Cucek

    I echo those comments of Sis Cucek! I too am sorry that I missed your farewell - but I hope Kimmy was able to pass on how delighted we all are for you! We will follow the news of your mission with great excitement. I sense you will fast become very dear to the English people & will find many kindred spirits among 'em. God bless all of the missionary efforts in your area. We eagerly await news of the work that you & others will move forward! Love & hugs from - Sister Katrina Coleman
