She drove in with her parents, sailed through the TSA screening and then poof! - she was gone ... for eighteen months.
Later in the evening after she had arrived in Mexico, she had the chance to send her parents a quick email:

Hola Mom and Dad!
I`m not sure how long I get on the computer (and a lot of the symbols are in weird places, which makes typing weird), but they give us some time to let you folks back at home know we are safe! When I got to Texas, I found a ton of missionaries, since apparently they routed most of us through there! It was fun to play ´´Spot the missionary´´ because nobody had tags on!
Also, tender mercy of the day: I thought I forgot my retainer at home, and was totally resigned to having to ask you to send it to me, but then I looked in my carry-on for a granola bar, and there it was! (Didn`t find the granola bar, but in the grand scheme of things, WAY less important).
I think that`s it for now? Not a ton has happened yet...more next week!
