Devon was able to call home while at the airport as he left Salt Lake to fly to Germany. It was great to hear from him. After having to spend an additional 6 weeks at the MTC in Provo to rehab his knee, he is more than eager to get out of Provo and start working with the people in his mission.
Devon was very upbeat. He still has a wear a small brace on his knee for a while longer, but he is cleared to be able to do the biking and walking that he'll be expected to do in the mission field. It appeared that the biggest struggle was keeping the luggage under the airline weight limit - he was glad when one bag was 2 pounds over the person at the Delta checkin desk said it was fine.
We look forward to hearing from him next week to hear about his first area of service.
