We have just completed our weeks training in the MTC. It was an amazing week. One of the senior couples said it was kind of like trying to drink from a fire hydrant. Sometimes we felt like that because there is so much to do and so much to learn. I feel like as long as we listen to the spirit, and take one step at a time, we’ll learn what we need to learn and do what we need to do. Returned missionaries taught most of the lessons, and it was pretty exciting to learn from them and admire how well they knew the gospel and the lessons. We got to spend Saturday at Arah's and one last time together.
Mike came to see us off at the airport. We had a good visit. It was very nice having him there with us. The entire flight was 26 hours, including two layovers and one diversion to Sydney. We met several interesting people on the plane and were actually able to discuss the gospel with them. One of the men Elder Shumway spoke to agreed to read the Book of Mormon. We will get back with him later. Pictures later, after we get DSL.
