Flight Plans!

WE FINALLY GOT OUR FLIGHT PLANS!! We got them yesterday in our mailbox. I am beyond excited! I'll try to tell you a little bit about them right now, and I'll be back on later around 4. So, we get to leave the MTC on Monday, January 9th at 1:30pm! Our flight out of Salt Lake is at 4:50 pm and will connect to the San Francisco Airport around 6 california time. We then have a 6 HOUR layover in California until we catch out flight to Hong Kong at 12:05 am. Once we get to Hong Kong, we will be meeting up with all the other Philippines bound missionaries from here (They split us into 3 groups) and we'll have a 3 hour layover before be catch our flight to Manilla. From there we will travel by ground to the Angeles mission home. 
 I know that I know over 200 vocab words... but I'm not really sure on the real numberI think that I've felt the biggest change in my perspective. I'm trying to follow Elder Bednar's council and turn outwards more like Christ.

Ingot, Mahal kita!

  1. ...side note to Garetts vocabulary... On Tuesday this week I got a phone call from the MTC. It was Garetts teacher. He explained that the District took a vote on who knew and spoke the language the most. The person with the most votes from the district was Garett. This meant that the teacher got to call his parents and tell them all about the missionary. Although I didnt get to speak to Garett, his teacher told me all about him, how he is doing. He told me that Garett has his heart and his head in the right place, has a strong desire to serve the Lord and do all that he can to be an instument in His hands. He said Garett has really learned the language well and works hard everyday to improve. I know Garett is ready know to get to the Philippines and serve the people there. He truely is an example to me!
