Soeur Vogel will not be leaving for New Caledonia on Sunday. Half of her district did not receive their working permits in time and instead will be going to Mesa, Arizona on Tuesday.
We have been assured that this is a temporary reassignment until their working papers come through. She is the only sister who is being delayed, however, which will make saying goodbye to her fellow missionaries even more bittersweet.
However, she is determined to live by her own advice and BLOOM WHERE SHE IS PLANTED.
I am sure she would love to receive an encouraging email from her friends and family: firstname.lastname@example.org.
