We got to talk to Katie on Monday when she was in the Miami airport waiting for her flight to Chile!!!
She sounds great and was excited to set foot in her new home, Viña del Mar. We had a good laugh when she said that she didn't think her Nacho Libre accent was going to get her very far in Chile ~ especially after listening to so many Spanish-speaking people in the airport. It's understandable that she would be a little nervous about the language, but I don't doubt that she'll do well. She's got the Lord on her side, and well... she's Katie. : )
We haven't heard from her mission president or from Katie since she arrived on Tuesday. We figure no news is good news at this point. I'm sure it's insane with the increased number of Elders and Sisters going into the field right now. It certainly is a unique and wonderful time to be a missionary!
Katie's new address is:
Hermana Katherine Pendleton
4 Norte 1112
Viña del Mar
