Thales began his journey today at the Cedar Rapids Airport At 5:30 this morning. (note: Ben was tired). He will stop in Minneapolis and then on to Salt Lake City. There he will catch an Express Shuttle to the Missionary Training Center in Provo. He will not have access to the internet (except for weekly emails to Mom :)) or a phone so please write. (Letters are little bits of treasure to missionaries). I will try to keep his blog up to date. Thanks to everyone that helped Thales to go on this mission!
