Elder Bailey Leaves for Taiwan – 6 Sep 11

You can now send letters to Elder Bailey at:

Elder Spencer Keith Bailey
Taiwan Taichung Mission
498-11 Wu Chuan Road
Taichung, 404-46 Taiwan
R.O.C.

Spencer called home for a few minutes yesterday from the airport. He was doing great, and said that he was the group leader of the traveling group. They ended up flying with 40 missionaries total. So they were quite a group. Only about 20 of those will go to his mission in the south. The rest will stay north. He will have 21 hours of travel, and will arrive Thursday night at 10 pm Taiwan time. Then he has a 3 hour drive south to the mission home, where he will have a 2 day training and then he is off to work.  On the plane from Utah to LA. he sat by a business man from Heber. Of course he made friends with him by the time they got to LA. and the man told him to gather all the missionaries and he would buy them lunch.( Spencer told him you probally don’t want to do that , there’s 40 of us.) The man fed them all at Panda Express.  Spencer thought that was remarkable! He set to work talking to everyone in the airport, he didn’t want to waste a single minute. He LOVES  missionary service.

Thank you, Thank you, to all of you who have taken time to write to  Spencer, he has really appreciated your thoughtfulness and kindness! Your letters are a great support to him.

Love to you all,

Elder Bailey’s Mom

    So happy for you Spencer! I’m sure you’ll be a great missionary! I have 2 grandsons that are looking forward to applying for missions next year about this time. Right now, they are “newbies” at BYU, which will be a great in-between time to break them in to being away from home and family for extended periods of time. Talk to ya’ later….Love ya’….Aunt Sharon
