My parents have sent a few pictures, but not much in the way of text for me to share, so I will provide my own commentary! After I believe 27 hours of travel, they arrived in Durbin, South Africa late on Tuesday, Sept 27th. The mission President and his wife picked them up from the airport. While in Durbin, they received some instruction on their duties for their mission, and driving lessons (hold me).
Here are a few pictures of them outside the bed and breakfast where they stayed their first few days.
And... someone had a birthday in Durbin on the 29th!
