Week 6 Elder Empey Flys to Paris!

Dresden in Paris with his mission President who has only been the Pres for one month.  They have a Facebook  page with the link on the right side of this page.

Breakfast with President Babin and his wife in Paris.  President Babin and his wife are from Paris.  She went on a mission to Brussels years ago and he to SLC.

Elder Empey flew to Paris on Monday August 18th direct from SLC to Paris with 30 other missionaries that were going to his same mission and several other missionaries going to other parts of Europe.  He got to call us from the airport in SLC and he sounded great.  He loved the MTC but was ready to get to Paris.  He talked with our entire family and even to Grandma and Grandpa Orton and other family and friends.  He says that he has gained 10 ponds form all the food in the MTC!  We have not yet heard from him since his arrival in Paris but have found video and pictures of his safe arrival on his mission president's Facebook page which has a link to the right.  I have also added links to Elder Empey's Eagle video.

Thanks for all your love, support and prayers for our family and especially Elder Empey.  We feel so blessed and lucky to have him as a son and you family and friends for support and love.
