Hey family, I only have a few minutes to write, i'm sorry. I gave up my p day because some japanese sister who is doubling as a nurse on her mission for missionaries had to go to a medical seminar and I had to translate it for 8 hours today. My head is seriously going to explode. But it was a wonderful experience and I'm gratfeul for it.
So here's my schedule...I leave monday at like 5 in the morning. I'll be in the LAX airport and able to call family from 9:30AM to 12:30 LA time and 4:30 to 7:30PM Tokyo time, whatever that is. So yes, I don't think there is a limit on how much time I can have when i can call you but i have to pay for it with my own money when it is from the airport. so i'll use a pay phone, borrow someone's cell phone, or buy a calling card or something like that. so yes, i think the tokyo time is like from 4:30 to 7:30 in the morning tuesday or something like that...maybe wake up at 6 and i'll call you!
Anyways, i'm sorry this is so short, I love everyone and next prep day i'll be sure to write you a long email telling you how it is! oh by the way, i'm sending my memory card to brittany and then she'll send it to you! I love you all!
Sweet! My friend had some extra time of email so i'm using his!
So this last week has been pretty great! I got my travel plans and i've been talking pretty much nihongo dake (japanese only) which has been a challenge but i'm feeling the blessing of it. Spiritually I have been edified this whole MTC time. It's truly amazing what the Lord does here at the MTC. There are alot of great elders here, but so many more missionaries leave better, more prepared teachers of the gospel than the number of those who come here. Thank you for your prayers everyone. I feel part of a fantastic family and i'm very grateful for my parents. And you too Miles, Matthew, and Brittany!
So quick thought. I'm hosting this wednesday and Parker, Gainluca, and Stickler all get here that day. My chances are slim but I might be able to host for one of them and carry around their luggage! How exciting is that!?
Well once again i'll say, i love you! keep it real, be safe, pray for Grandpa Craig. I hope he will receieve baptism soon. Love you
