Here is Alex’s last letter:

hey. see you guys on Friday.
I guess she figures she can just talk to us on Friday. Thank you all for reading her letters. We certainly have enjoyed hearing about her adventures in Ecuador. From the city to the Galapagos Islands, to the jungle, she has had some memorable experiences. We have enjoyed hearing her stories of struggles and success. She has loved being a missionary so I’m sure it will take some time to adjust to civilian life and speaking English. We are excited to have her home.
She arrives Friday night. Her homecoming is Sunday at 9:00. If you are planning to be there please come early. There is a farewell that same day so it’s a good guess that the Chapel will be packed.
Thanks again for all your support, concern, and prayers for her.
