I meant to post this Monday, but I kinda forgot until this morning when I was watching Good Morning America. On March 10th, 2003 I flew from the MTC to Munich to start my mission! I still remember it like it was yesterday...
calling my parents (& Jess!) at the airport in SLC, g
etting lost in the Chicago airport,
flying a LONG ways to London Heathrow Airport over Ireland and a very clear London Town,
almost missing our flight to Munich because Heathrow is a wierd airport where you don't wait at your gate,
meeting Pres. Wirthlin and Sister Wirthlin for the first time on March 11th and traveling by U-bahn for the first time... and getting lost with the APs in Munich!
Eatting my first dinner in Germany, in a Doner Kabab shop inside a Walmart
Wandering around said Walmart and hearing the Wirthlins argue about buying a house plant
finally getting some sleep (in the Gen. Authority room)!
waking up March 12th at 6:30am and wondering what I should do since the Wirthlins weren't up yet
memorizing a scripture while waiting for breakfast
spening the whole day at the Mission Office getting oriented
meeting my trainer, Sister Davis on March 13!
hearing that Elizabeth Smart had been found (hence why I remembered today, GMA interviewed them this morning... I remember being suprised, I had lived in Utah when she was kidnapped, Sis. Davis didn't even know who she was!)
leaving the Mission home and traveling to Wuerzburg!
I seriously can't believe its been 5 years, but its been a GREAT 5 years!
