We were able to speak with Elder Watson yesterday while he had his layover at the Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX airport. It was wonderful to hear his voice and how excited he is to enter the mission field and start teaching.
As part of his trip, a couple of things we noticed were, that he left the Salt Lake City airport about 4 hours after David and arrived in Dallas about 15 minutes after Dave left for Miami. They both called us at the same time, so we had to shuffle the calls around so we had one on each phone (I called back the payphone in the Miami airport). In addition, they both left about the same time for Argentina but Dave arrived about an hour earlier than Mike. We don't know if they were able to greet each other in Buenos Aires because Dave said he had to get to another terminal right away or he would miss his flight (even though his layover was about two hours).
This afternoon we received an email from President and Sister Argyle (Mike's mission president) that he arrived safely and that he was assigned to work in Villa Adelina with Elder Garay. We are very excited for him. We will post his first letter home when he writes us on his P-Day.
