This week was kind of a stressful one, but it went by quick, as usual. Yesterday we did our in field training which went all day from 8 to 5:30. They taught us how to work with members and how to make goals and things like that. It was a long day haha.. We also got to skype again with a guy in Bacolod, Philippines, which was pretty cool! He was really nice to us and told our teacher afterwards that we did a good job!
We got our flight plans last Friday! The plane is leaving Salt Lake around 11:20 Thursday morning and we head to Tokyo from there. Then from Tokyo to Manilla. I sent a letter in the mail that has a copy of the paper I got so you can see the details. I'm so looking forward to talking with you on the phone--I just hope I'm able to get to a pay phone and I don't have any trouble. A few of the Elders have disposable cell phones with them just for calling from the airport. I know we talked about that before I left, but I can't remember what we decided to do about that. Let me know what you want me to do ok?It will be so nice to make some changes next week!! I just can't wait to get going!
Sorry this is short - the weeks are all the same here, so I don't have much to report. I'm hoping that they will let us access our email Wednesday before we leave so I can check in one more time before we head out.
Thanks for sending the pictures of the fence Mom & Dad - I can't wait to see it when it is done and I can't wait to talk to you on Thursday!
