(From previous email: MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
MOM how are you? I'm doing great today!
SO I HAVE GREAT NEWS I JUST GOT MY TRAVEL PLANS I LEAVE THE MTC IN 11 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So the way it works is I'm leaving at 10:30 the 27 of Dec.
My flight takes off at 1:30 so I bought a phone card for a couple dollars and I should be able to call you at the airport. We fly to Miami (its about at 7 hour flight)
then we fly on a smaller plane to Barbados where we'll meet the mission prez. We'll be in Barbados 2:30 local time the 28th then he'll assign us to what country we'll be in. Then the 29 we'll fly to whatever country we'll be in. Things might change but we'll see...)
As for this week. I've never been fatter in my life. Coco milk on tap has destroyed me.
Our new district is amazing. I'll send a picture from the temple this morning. We all get along very well. It's been weird being in charge of all these people. Some of these elders are older than me but it's been cool at the same time.
This week has been insanely spiritual for me.
Elder Jeffery R. Holland came.
It was the greatest talk I've ever heard. It was almost two hours long and he ended up challenging us to come of a for sure knowledge of the BOM (Book of Mormon).
So I fasted and prayed all day. It was amazing.
Of course I'll tell you more over the phone on Christmas and the 27th.
French has been really clicking. I'm learning a ton everyday. Can't wait to tell you more.
Props to Winston on learning French. If he keeps it up he'll go French speaking.
[Regarding the coat & gloves Uncle Matt dropped off at the MTC]
Oh yeah, I did .
Thanks for that, I use it all the time.
[Regarding Christmas package]
Thank you so much as a district leader I get the mail twice a day. So excited to be getting something.
Love you lots 11 days then I'm in the Barbados.
Next week I'll send you more details about calling and stuff.
Overall I'm loving the mission. So blessed to be out here. Missing you all and loving the pictures you send.
