Ok so this might be my last post for a couple weeks, I'm not sure how everything will be once I get to "The Holy Land." Today was orientation and it was very informative. It started to make the whole thing seem real. I don't really know how to react to everything, I'm so excited!! Tomorrow will be all day of flying.
So luckily I was able to see some of my good friends before I left. Jessica, Mckenzie, and her sister Kelby. Jessica lives in Salt Lake and Mckenzie is doing an internship in Salt Lake this winter so we met up for frozen yogurt, which ended up being a difficult task for me considering I got lost on the way, and the way back. But it was great to see them! I also got to talk to one of my best friends Lexi on the phone for a while until my phone died on her. That was my last time talking to her for a long time since she is leaving on her mission Feb. 15! Makes me really sad to think about that, but I am so excited for her!!
I was also hoping to meet up with my good friend Ben since he is in Utah as well, but that didn't work out:( I'm grateful for all the great family and friends that I do have who love and support me and I will miss them all so much! It is hard saying goodbye to those that you love. Tomorrow will be sad saying bye to my parents.
Next time I post I'll be in JERUSALEM!!! :)
Not the best one of me, but it has us all in it. Jess was a little hungry as you can tell..
