Dear Brother and Sister Ormsby,
I'm so sorry the first attempt to get you this email failed. I'm trying again.
Elder Ormsby arrived yesterday safe and sound (after a 2 hour delay in Amsterdam for a snowstorm) with his 5 fellow missionaries in the Bucuresti airport. Sister Hill and I were so happy to see them. They were a bit tired but glad to finally be in Romania. We had a wonderful dinner with them and then sent them to spend the night with other missionaries in the city. Today we all met at Cismigiu Park atop a little hill where in 1990 Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles dedicated the country for preaching the gospel just a few weeks after the fall of communism. This afternoon we gave them instruction and introduced them to their companions.
Elder Ormsby will be trained by Elder H and labor in the city of Timisoara. Elder H just served as my assistant, so he's a wonderful elder.
Thank you so much for sending us such a wonderful, faithful and well-prepared missionary. We love him already and are so pleased he came to our mission.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at this address.
Attached is a photo of the arriving group with Sister Hill and me as we stand on that hilltop in Cismigiu Park.
With much appreciation,
President Ned C. Hill
