We received an email from Anna Waddoups (the mission president’s wife) saying “All is Well!” and it included this picture.
Craig with Presidente and Sorella Waddoups (The Italy Rome Mission President and his wife, Anna) standing in front of the Mission Home where the Waddoups live. The Waddoups will be serving in Rome from July 1, 2013 through July 1, 2016. They are from Utah, and before going to Italy, President Waddoups was the President of the Utah State Senate. I am grateful for Anna Waddoups because she is keeping a “Mission Blog” with a lot of great information, some of which has already been helpful to me. A link to her blog is found in the right sidebar of this blog under “Other Missionary Blogs We Love To Read.”
This is another picture of the Mission Home which is called “The Villa.” It was built in 1924 by the Italian dictator, Benito Mussolini, for his niece.
We have not heard from Craig yet and probably won’t until his P-day next Wednesday. Now that he is in Italy, the best way to write to him is to email him at the following address:
