Heidi was super busy today as it was her last P.Day before leaving for Germany , so she didn't have time to write much of an email....
"I am doing great and SUPER excited to leave for Germany next week .I have my flight plans!!! I fly to Amsterdam at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday morning and will arrive in Amsterdam around 8:00 a.m Wednesday. I then fly to Berlin...my home away from home for the next 17 months!!!
( Heidi is on the same flight as one of her best friends , Elder Nate Blackhurst, who is serving in the Netherlands mission. So fun they are flying to their missions together!!! )
Sorry I'm going to have to hand write my experiences from the week since I'm out of time. But I hope everything is good at home!!! :D "
She did send us a few pictures which keeps us happy until we receive a letter!!! :D
Pretty much the highlight of my week was being reunited with my dearest Megan!!! Sister Matheson is headed to the Rio De Jeniero Brazil mission. I have missed her sooooo much since we were at school together at BYU. She was the BEST roommate I could have hoped for. Whoever her companion is will be lucky. And the people of Brazil are lucky because she has the biggest heart out of everyone I know. I pretty much searched the MTC far and wide until I found her the first day . . . :)
Elder Marler and me. He was Kalin's roommate at school. He's headed to Brazil on his mission. Gotta love AWKWARD Elder-Sister photos. Related quote from brother Alston this week: "Learn to embrace the awkwardness that comes with being a missionary."
I love watching all the missionaries head over to the Marriott center for devotionals.. Army of Helaman right there!!!
