So this is Ali's mom. I just talked to Hermana Hansen on the phone. She called from the Atlanta airport to let us know that she is happy and well and excited about boarding the plane to Nicaragua in a few hours. It was AWESOME to hear her voice!
Here's a tender mercy from the Lord. On her flight from SLC, Ali met an LDS businessman who was born and bred in Nicaragua but now lives in the United States and has a daughter serving a mission in Nicaragua. He was able to educate her on the country and the culture and even briefed her on what to do should she ever fall prey to the stomach and intestinal issues that sometimes plague Americans in Nicaragua. He treated her to lunch and helped her get where she needed to be. Heavenly Father loves and watches over His missionaries!
