Oh my goodness...I have been waiting for this my ENTIRE LIFE!!! I love it so much already!!
The flight went well- nothing too exciting. I met up with an Elder McBride from Idaho in SLC, so we flew to Seattle and then onto Tokyo where we met up with a couple other elders.
I fell in love with the Philippines as soon as we got here- it reminds me so much of Fiji (which is why I said "bula" haha- it means hello in Fijiian). It's a little humid but feels wonderful, and I love it!
Sorry this email is short- I've got stuff to do! But I love this Gospel and I know that this is the true church. I think it's amazing that a group of 19 year old kids could be willing to hop on a plane alone, travel to the other side of the world without a phone and we're not afraid at all!!! There is a wonderful spirit and power in that and I'm so grateful for the blessing the church has been in my life!!
My preparation days are Fridays, so I'll be emailing home then.
Love you all! Stay strong and be true to the things you know!!
