Casi alli (almost there)


I'm gonna get straight to the good important stuff.  So lets see... mom, I got my travel papers and I leave the MTC @ 6:00 in the morning and my flight leaves at 9:50 @ SL airport.  Im flyin Delta.  So that means that I will most likely be calling you anytime around 8-9:30 or somethin around there...ha.  So just try and be ready that morning I guess.  I have a four hour layover in Atlanta, GA so I can call you when I get there also.  I am set to arrive in Atlanta @ 3:35 PM Atlanta Time so I will call you anytime around then... so just be ready anytime then i guess.  I have no clue what time I will actually be calling so...Then I leave Atlanta @ 7:50 PM Atlanta Time.  Then I go straight on a 10 hour flight to Buenos Aires and the church takes care of me from there I guess.  The are not sure if I will be flying or driving to Mendoza.  So, we'll see. 

So I am also able to bring one carry-on bag which the weight limit for it is 40 lbs and not more than 45 dimensional inches and must be small enought to fit under a seat or in an overhead bin.  It says that a backpack is a carry-on though so...I am not sure.  It says that I can bring a carry-on and a personal item.  I will ask again but it can't hurt to come and drop off a carry on bag because they are fine with parents coming and dropping things off at the front desk if it is situations like this.  I will see what I can do.  I just became a little lost in thought...Ha.  I just hope this all works out.  Maybe I should pray...

Well other things I got to do this week that I don't have time to explain because I have been looking through these other travel papers and stuff but I will give you a brief overview of this week.  It was the last week of being a Zone Leader so I was able to enjoy the blessings of that.  I was able to be a host missionary.  That was a pretty cool experience to go stand on the curb and welcome in a few new missionaries and take them around.  I had In-Field Orientation yesterday which basically consists of everything that we don't learn from the teachers in our class such as finding people and working with members.  Oh, and Elder Squires and I just got a notice in the mail that says that we have been chosen to be in a role-playing activity thing in front of all of the new missionaries next week so this should be pretty interesting to host then be missionaries in front of them.  I wish I had more time to expound on my week but time is killing me right now so I will have to tell more next time! 

Somewhat Spiritual Thought:

Well, there is this old man that just walks around on my floor where my classroom is, and I am pretty sure he doesn't even work here.  He must be a volunteer or something.  But whenever he goes into the bathroom(I happened to have been in the bathroom with him about 5 or 6 times in the past week) he without fail every time he says to the Elders "Remember Elders, the Gospel brings peace, but this room brings relief."  Ha ha.  And I'll leave you with that!  Gracias para todo su amor y sus oraciones! 

Con Amor,
