Dear Brother and Sister Schmidt,
I just wanted to let you know your daughter arrived safely today in Moscow and we love her already! What a fine missionary she is. Thank you for letting us have her for the next 15 months and we will watch over and care for her. I have attached a picture of her that was taken this afternoon shortly after she arrived. She will be here in the mission home with us tonight and tomorrow night and on Thursday she will meet her trainer. My husband has given her one of our very best sisters as her trainer, Sister Polishchuk, from the Ukraine, and they will serve in our upper Nizhniy Novgorod Branch. Nizhniy is east of Moscow and is about a 4 hour express train ride.
Our P-Days are on Mondays and that is when they can email home, do their laundry, shopping, etc. Our mission address for all letters, packages, etc. is:
Sister Laura Schmidt
Russia Moscow Mission
Galvpochtampt a/ai 257
We are excited to have our Sister Schmidt here in our Russia Moscow Mission. If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me.
