Sister Riggs Arrives in San Diego

Sister Riggs has left the building!!! (a.k.a. the MTC!) Early on Tuesday morning, July 17, 2012, she flew out of the Salt Lake City airport to San Diego, California, where she will serve for the remainder of her mission. She was greeted by her mission president and his wife, President and Sister Clayton. Here is a photo of all the newest missionaries in the San Diego Mission!
Because Sister Riggs was traveling last week, we did not receive an email. So in lieu of a weekly letter, we have a few fun photos to share with you! Her last week in the MTC she got to train at Temple Square. Ralynne's sister, LaDawn, happened to be in SLC that week and was able to "run into" Sister Riggs and listen to a wonderful message she had to share about the gospel! LaDawn said Sister Riggs was just beaming with the spirit!

 Sister Riggs is already busy at the Mormon Battalion. This photo was sent to us from one of her visitors there.
She looks pretty good as a pioneer, don't ya think?! Last but not least, below is a photo of her and Sister Rasmussen (one of her roommates in the MTC), in their Mormon Battalion costumes.
We look forward to her next email are we are so excited for her and can't wait to hear about all of her adventures in San Diego!
