|Pic snapped in the Atlanta airport by a family friend (Russ Ence) who was on his flight.|
Russ: So- I'm on a flight to Atlanta this morning. Sitting in my seat awaiting take-off. When suddenly, a procession of about 25 missionaries comes down the aisle. A good looking "Elder Shields" among them! We chatted for about a minute while he was stalled in the aisle. He looks great. Happy. Ready to go! Just thought you might like to know. Tell "Mom" all is well. I'll try to catch him for moment in ATL.
Sandi: This is Sandi, I happened to have Paul's phone. I am so jealous. Thank you so much for the text!
Russ: Jacob has a great smile!
Sandi: It is my favorite, he lights up, with his missionary spirit, I can only imagine.
Russ: I'm going to go ahead and wire the Atlanta airport to get the font ready. No doubt there will be someone from the back of the plane ready for baptism by the time we land (ha, ha)!
Sandi: Ha, ha, a pic is coming soon, right?!
Russ: Maybe a pic in Atlanta- deicing now.
Russ: I snapped this picture. He may not have time to call he said. They're off to catch a connection.
Look out North Carolina, Elder Shields is on his way! Can't wait to talk to him on Christmas!
