We had in-field orientation yesterday where we did a lot of workshops and stuff and learned how to work with members. It was a lot to take in in just 8 hours, but I left with a lot of great insights and a stronger desire to get out and work! The biggest thing I got out of it was that I can't be afraid of making mistakes. I just have to get out, be myself, and try my best! That's all He asks, really. :) I'll make plenty of mistakes but that's how I'll learn! And besides, they always make for great stories. :)
It's just hard to believe this time is already here!
We fly out Monday morning at 11am, I think. First to Georgia, then from there to Argentina. We have a four or five hour layover in Atlanta so I will call you then! :) I'm not quite positive what time yet, I have to look at my travel plans. I'll get on again tonight after I talk to my zone and figure it all out (so feel free to email me back before then:) I called Zion's Bank and told them I'd be leaving for Argentina on Monday so everything should be good there. I think that's about it though! Thank you so very much for all the letters and the packages you've sent while I've been here, they never failed to make my day. :) And since I won't be able to get any of those while I'm in Argentina, I made sure to be extra grateful for every single one. I love all of you so much and I am so excited to talk to you on Monday!!! Just think, the next time you speak to me after that I'll probably be fluent and I'll have almost seven months on the mission. Crazy, no? Love you!
