Traveling to Chile

Hayden left the MTC on Monday, December 2 around 1 pm to head to the airport to fly to Chile.  He flew with a group of 15, 7 of them were going to a mission in the south and 7 were headed to the Concepcion South mission.  His plane left Mexico at 7:30 pm and he had a 8 hr flight to Santiago, Chile.  Once there they had a 6 hr layover.  We were able to talk to Hayden at about 6 am our time.  It was great to hear his voice.  He was nervous and excited.  He bore his testimony about Jesus Christ and what he was about to do.  He then boarded a plane to Concepcion and had a 1hr 20 minute flight there.  This is the email we received later that day.

Hey Family!
 I made it to Chile! Im in the mission president's home and we just had lunch! The flights were good and I am glad that I was able to call and talk to you!! The mission president and all the elders and hermanas are very nice! Well I have to go! I love you!! -Elder Noel 


  1. So glad he is safe and sound. It sounds like his testimony is just getting stronger and stronger. What a great kid.

  2. So glad you made it to your final destination. Glad all is well and you are well. You have arrived at a very special time, for the Christmas season! JESUS is the reason for the season! We miss you Hayden!
