|President and Sister Rawlings and Vahnin Wilson|
Brother and Sister Wilson,
Greetings from the great land of Finland. This picture was taken at the mission home the night your son arrived in Finland. We met your son yesterday, which was a great blessing for us. We are very happy that they all arrived safely. We are excited to have new missionaries. They always bring a special spirit to the mission. This is a group of well-prepared missionaries who will see much success.
Hey mom and dad!! It is currently 845 PM and I am sitting with everyone in the mission home! We landed in Helsinki around 3 this afternoon, got to speak to real Finns on the plane and it is so awesome! President Rawlings and the APs picked us up from the airport and took us right to the Temple grounds. It was so beautiful! The temple is so much bigger and more beautiful in person. Then we came back here to the mission home and sister Rawlings made us all a dinner and we had interviews with President Rawlings. We are all going to shower and go to sleep, tomorrow we have a little orientation in the morning then get assigned our first areas! President just wanted us to send a quick email to let you know we are here safe and sound! Everything is great and Finland is absolutely beautiful! I love you! I will email you on Monday!
