Arriving to the Mission

Elder Cody McCormick left the MTP (Missionary Training Prison as he calls it) on the 10th of June. He had quite a long day flying from Salt Lake City to Atlanta then on to Milwaukee. He wrote us a letter that same day, and you could tell he was tired from his travels. President and Sister Barrett prepared a home cooked meal for the new missionaries, the first since leaving home.

When he had his interview with Pres. Barrett, Cody told him that he was from South Phoenix, the ghetto. President Barrett wrote that down in his notes and Cody thought I know where I will be going. He was sent to the ghetto part of Milwaukee and he said he is liking it. He should be in that area 6 to 12 weeks.
