So as you know this week has been a severely long one, but it is getting better and better. Before I start I wanted to finally reveal a personal goal of mine while I am on my mission. it is to stay positive no matter what the circumstances. Overall that mindset has really changed my perspective on life. Through all of these trials, I have been able to face them and by doing so, i end up stronger and happier.
It is finally coming to that time where everyone is getting back into school! I hope that Andrew is doing well in Humboldt as he has still been slacking on emailing me! Haha. I think it is funny that Jake got stung by bees. Maybe it will be a humbling experience for him ;) Biro biro Luckily for you mom, this won't be your last email from me in the MTC. I will be able to email again on Wednesday so try and respond before then. I can't believe that I am already about a month and a half there. That leaves basically 22 months left since I am supposed to come back about 2 weeks early.
The MTC has been an amazing experience. I loved the opportunity of being a Zone Leader. I got to know the Zone so well and these new Elders are soo awesome. I am gonna miss all of them. I am super excited to head out! The official flight plan is from Salt lake city to Tokyo. And then from Tokyo to the Philippines. I am pretty sure that the visas all went through and we are ready to travel. I believe that I finally sent that letter back home, but I will double check to make sure. My goal for these next 4 days is to get my suit dry cleaned. if it doesn't happen, I will be thoroughly stinky on the way home........ Anyways that is about it for now! I will talk to you again soon and i will try and send pictures at some point!! Love you all!
