Getting Started

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.

So your not going to mention the all the time you spent with me and Gavin that day?

Give credit where credits due. Zeb was the one who said that when we were all going to eat at Golden Corral.

Sorry Arah, we did very much enjoy our time with you and Gavin, as well as when Laura and the kids came to see us at the MTC. We love you all very much. Thanks to for the special efforts you all made to see us and spend time with us before we left. By the way, I seem to have lost my entire slide show when I tried to add text to "Because Two People Fell in Love." I am not pleased. I hope that I can figure out how to reload it once I have DSL.
