Erik is en route to Budapest Hungary. He called from the airport and gave us a short lesson in Hungarian -- he speaks as quickly in Hungarian as he does in English, so that's a good sign! He is excited and ready to go.
Here he is with his cousin Christopher who just entered the MTC going to Thailand.
This picture is from a kind man who saw the missionaries at the airport this morning and happened to be the parent of a former Budapest missionary. He took pictures and sent them on to the families.
