Dear family of Elder Ridd-
We are delighted to tell you that Elder Ridd arrived safely in Munich this morning. He is tucked away in bed now after a long day of orientation.
We thought you might enjoy these pictures from this evening. His new companion is Elder Stilger, and they will be serving in Tübingen, Germany.
We are thrilled that he is here and are very impressed with his preparation and enthusiasm. He will be a great missionary. Thank you for all you have done to help him become the fine young man he is today. We love him already, and we will do all we can to help him grow as a missionary and have a successful mission. Your son's preparation day is on Mondays and that is when he will be emailing you home each week. If you would like his apartment address where he will be serving - please email him before next Monday and ask him to give it to you in his first email next Monday. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. May the Lord bless you and your family at this wonderful time of missionary service.
