1st Area

Wesley arrived in Blaine, Washington last night about 8pm PDT. He and his companion are living with a member couple...actually "empty-nesters" with a son on a mission. The sister called last night to let me know that he had arrived safely. It was a relief, as I had worried about him all day. I've included two maps here to give you some perspective on where he is actually located. Blaine is the northern-most, western-most area in the mission. Any further north and he would be in Canada, any further west would put him in the Pacific Ocean. It is about 110 miles north of Seattle and the average precipitation in Blaine is about 36 inches per year.
Unfortunately, email is not available in Wesley's mission, so all contact is done snail mail. His current mailing address is: 4453 D Street, Blaine, WA 98230.
