November 5, 2012


Thanks for the emails. The BYU scholarship thing is pretty exciting that will help a lot. I'll have to see if I can find anymore. Thanks for that info.

I think the whole travel process should be fairly easy honestly. I've basically finished packing now and I just have to do a load of laundry and put in the snacks and lollies that I'll be bringing home as well. It’s been an exciting week. It’s been a fast week really. We worked pretty well until transfers on Friday and since then it’s been pretty unreal.   Friday afternoon was funny because all the greenies were in the transfer meeting with us and were able to hear our departing testimonies.  That is not how it usually works since they get really home sick.  It was funny because when we went into to have our departing interviews on Sunday; one of the new greenies was having an interview because he was homesick, lol.  In all reality the departing missionary’s testimonies were very tame so all I’m saying is that it could have been worse, lol.

Sunday night we were at the mission home having departing interviews and we had dinner with President and had another testimony meeting. It was a very special experience honestly and it was something I'll cherish.  “Departing” has been said a lot lately but it feels like a dream and it’s not quite real. Last night helped it to all sink in but it’s hard to rap my mind around it all. It will hit me as we're flying out. That usually how it works. I'm excited to be home and to see you all.  It sounds like you have the interview with the Stake President all set up. Thanks for that. Dinner does sound nice. It would be good to get some Mexican food somewhere I think. IDK though. To tell you the truth I don’t have a long list of to-do's that need to be done as soon as I get off the plane so we'll just play it by ear. As far as the welcoming home at the airport thing I'd actually prefer no big thing.  That’s just how I am. Lol.

Today is P-day and tomorrow is Zone Meeting and saying goodbyes; that and trying to not get yelled at for disturbing people's Melbourne Cup day. It’s a massive horse race and the country stops for it. It’s annoying really but we'll work around it. Other than that there is not much else to report. I'm looking forward to the flight.  Love you. Thanks for everything.
