We were able to talk to Elder Platt briefly this morning from the airport, before he departed out of Salt Lake City. Final destination: Barbados! He sounded great, excited to be in the mission field after a wonderful week in the MTC. Barbados is part of the Lesser Antilles islands in the Caribbean. It is about 21 miles long and 14 miles wide - roughly the shape of a pork chop - 250 miles north-east of Trinidad and Tobago. We assumed Rob would travel first to the the mission home in Trinidad, and he does have a layover there, but his final ride today will take him to Bridgetown, Barbados. Hopefully we will receive an email soon with details of his trip. When we know exactly where he will be serving, we will update his contact information. Below is a map of Barbados, in case any of you are as clueless as we are about the West Indies.
