Elder Jesse Bundy travels to Thailand!!!
On Monday, May 25, 2015, Jesse called us from the Salt Lake City, Utah airport! We had a GREAT visit as he expressed his excitement to finally be headed toward his assigned mission. Jesse had also been assigned to be the lead missionary for his group of six missionaries in making sure they all arrived safe and sound in Bangkok.
He also spoke to us in Thai!!! It was AMAZING!! We received the following pictures and letter from his mission president detailing what he would be doing his first several days in Thailand:

Dear Brother & Sister Bundy:
We are happy to report that your son arrived safely in Bangkok late last night, clearing passport control early this morning. He spent what was left of the evening in a hotel with his companion, where he will also stay this evening. He is in good spirits and is anxious to begin laboring in the Lord's vineyard in Thailand. We are thrilled to have him as a missionary in the Thailand Bangkok Mission family.
Elder Jesse Abraham Bundy will join other newly arrived missionaries, together with President and Sister Senior and the Assistant's to the President at Lumpini Park for a morning devotional. Lumpini Park is the site where then Elder Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the land of Thailand in 1966. Elder Bundy will have the opportunity to dedicate and consecrate himself to the most wonderful work. Your expressions of encouragement and spiritually uplifting email correspondence will be of great support. The new missionaries will be trained by Sister Senior and me, and later oriented by the Office Couple, Elder and Sister Meeker, and the Mission Assistants. New missionaries will have their first experience street contacting in the area followed by dinner at the Mission Home.
Your son will receive his first assignment tomorrow morning. Preparation day will be on Monday and he will be able to email you each week. I am sure he will have much to share regarding his experiences in Thailand, missionary activities and his first Sunday in his assigned area. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions during your son's term of missionary experience.
