Elder Bean departed the MTC on schedule the morning of December 16, 2013. We were blessed to receive a phone call from him while at the Atlanta airport. His Dad then set up a conference call with family members throughout the US to way good-bye and to wish him the best. It was a bit crazy with so many people on the phone but it was great to hear from him.
He arrived in Sao Paulo on schedule and more importantly, safe and sound.
