The Journey to Freedom

Going to Church is an adventure. We left early last week and got mixed up getting off of the metro and walked for a half hour trying to find the building. We finally went back to the metro and got our bearings and got to church 10 minutes late but they hadn't started the meeting. Today we decided to use the bus. We were going to drop off a check in the night drop off the bank and then catch the bus in front of the bank. The bank after hour drop off was closed. Today they had a 10 K race and blocked off the bus route. Once again we walked for about a half hour to get to where the buses were picking up and had to wait 15 minutes for one to come. Once again we barely got there before Church started. When you leave at 9:30 to get to church at 11:00'and have a missionary meeting after church and travel 40 minutes to get home your day passes quickly. We invited 4 more Barlow students to dinner at 4:00 and we walked into the codo at 3:55. I am grateful for a crockpot that had most of the work done.

The spiritual part of the day was hearing about Trina's experience getting her patriarchal bless today. I can't believe how fast she is growing up. Thanks Trina for allowing us to fast with you and letting us be a part of this special occasion. 


  1. You will learn to use the metro very well at the end of two years. I spent a lot of time on the metro on my mission.
