I was sent this picture from a family friend, who ran into Elder Stucki in the Salt Lake airport.
She was able to hug him and send him off with encouraging words.
Thank Heaven for tender mercies.
Hey I made it here.
We are at the Mission Presidents home right now. It is so pretty here. The weather is perfect right now.
I love it. I find out my companion tonight. My p-days will be on Mondays. So I will probably talk to you next Monday.
I love you guys.

Just a quick note to let you know your son has arrived in the Washington Federal Way Mission safely. We love him already and are thrilled to have him serve with us. This is a very beautiful mission with strong wards and stakes. The Lord has hastened the work in this important hour and he will have an impact on the work here. We thank you for your sacrifice to send him to us. We know the Lord will bless your family as you share in his missionary experience.
