Sean's first area is: Krefeld!

Sean arrived safely in Germany around 6:30 AM on a Tuesday was 9:30 PM here. There is a 9 hour difference in time. He wrote us a tiny email today and said he met his President and his wife, loved his first day in Germany and then took off by train to his first area. Krefeld!

When Becky and Robbie were on their missions we didn't know where they were at until they were in Germany and Honduras for a week. It was a nice surprise to open my email today and find a note from Sean with info about him and how his trip was. His companion is Elder Hawker. I don't know much about him as of yet but Sean has promised to write more in his letter when he writes on Pday...which will be Tuesday.

Krefeld is a fairly good sized city of about 240,000. It's official name is "Krefeld-Uerdingen am Rhein. Other big cities are near Krefeld, including Dusseldorf to the South East, Essen to the North East and a couple hours north of Cologne (Koln).

Sean mentioned on the bahn ride up he saw many castles as they followed along the Rhine River. Here is a castle that stands still today in Krefeld. It looks really pretty at night with the lights on it. Sean is up to the northern most part of the mission..not too far from the boards of Holland. His missionary life has begun!
