We woke up Monday morning to a 6am phone call from Sister Stabenow. She was all checked in and waiting for her flight from Salt Lake to San Francisco. She was so excited and ready to head off to the Philippines.. She bore her testimony in Tagalog for us and we all thought she sounded great. She said one of the things that she really learned at the MTC was that your attitude makes all of the difference. She shared that she felt like even though the language wasn't going to be where she wanted it to be it was all going to be fine. And that she needed to be focused outward and not inward. It was great to hear her voice, and when her Dad asked her if she was nervous at all she said no! We tracked her travels on a website called flightaware.com. She arrived in Manila this morning at about 6:30 am. We aren’t sure how she is getting to Cauayan from Manilla, they thought that it looked like they might be going by train. It will be much faster than a bus which could take up to 12 hours. So she is still traveling today and we are hoping to hear that she is finally in her mission safe and sound. What a long interesting journey can’t wait to hear all about it.
