After a 27 hour flight, Parker and 15 other missionaries arrived safely in Tirana, Albania. They flew from Salt Lake City to Chicago to Vienna, Austria to Albania. We had a great conversation with him by phone in Salt Lake City. He was so excited to get to the field! This was the email we received from his Mission President today.
Dear Missionary Family,
Your son, Elder Parker Stewart, arrived safe and sound at the Mission Home last evening. He will be serving in the Elbason Branch. This will be in the District of Tirana. His companion will be Elder Joseph Austin.
Sister Ford and I are so pleased to have Elder Stewart as one of our missionaries and look forward to getting to know him well. We know that he will be able to contribute much to the missionary effort of teaching the people of Albania about Jesus Christ.
Missionaries absolutely love to receive mail and can be contacted either by email or by sending letters through the post office to:
