I seriously cannot believe that it is P-day. The weeks go by so fast. AND!!!!! We got our flight plans yesterday!!!!!!! We leave not this Monday, but next! Once we actually had those flight plans, it felt real that we are actually going to the Philippines. So crazy. I'm the only missionary in my zone going to Olongapo so I was afraid that I would have to fly at a different time than everyone else in my district but we all leave for the airport at the same time. And i'm flying with two people in my district to San Francisco and then to Tokyo, Japan. I'm going to Japan. Weird!!! And then in Tokyo, we meet back up with everyone in my district and fly to Manila on the same flight. So I will get to see them one more time before we split up for the next year and a half. I am going to miss them so much! Especially my kasama. Everyone else in my district is going to Cauayan mission and I'm the odd one out. But that's okay. Also, I found out that in the airport we get to call home! So, Mom/Dad you better be available to talk! The crazy thing about flying to the Philippines is that we leave Monday morning and get there Wednesday morning. So I will never live Tuesday. And when we come home from the Philippines, we will leave on a Wednesday morning say atSo this week Sister Howlett and I got a new companion so we are a threesome until we leave. Her name is Sister Carr and she was in the distrcit older that left this last Monday but she wasn't supposed to come into the MTC when she did because she's going to a new mission. so they thought that they could send her two weeks early but no one will be there to pick her up so they made her stay two extra weeks here in the MTC. That was really sad for her. It was a little awkward to add a third person to our companionship, but I think we've mostly worked it out. and get back on Wednesday morning at . So then I'll get to live Wednesday again! What a weird time difference.
Well, everyone keep praying for my visa. Even though I have my flight plans, that doesn't mean my visa came. And I probably won't find out if it didn't come until this Friday.
