WAITING for your email. Can't wait to hear what is going on with you.
Malynne: Hey mom, are you there? it's me!
Malynne: Hey, I am going to be able to call you both from the airport :) I have a call card and I will be able to spend a few minutes calling. I didn't want everyone else to know because I didn't want them to feel bad because I will be calling when they are in school. I am leaving the MTC at 8 and so as soon as I get through security at the airport I will call around like 9. I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR YOUR VOICES!!!! I love you!
Mom: Can we keep everyone home from school or do you only want to talk to dad and I?
Malynne: You can keep everyone, I just didn't want them to feel sad if they didn't get to talk to me because they were at school so I though that I would just be on the safe side.
Mom I only have like 5 minutes! write faster!
Mom: We will let everyone know and let them decide. I guess you will know who loves you by who stays home.
Malynne: Oh my gosh you seriously think that they would pass up a chance to get out of school? :)
I wrote you all that letter, I will be able to talk more on the phone. I hope I will have like an hour to talk, I bought a calling so that I will be able to.
Mom: Dear Malynne, I want to know if this email address is the email that you will be using throughout your mission? I think the thing that I am most in the dark about is how do I correspond with you? The missionaries of old used to only get to have letters.....can we email back and forth AND send letters or OR send letters? I will always want to know your physical address so that I can mail you packages OR do all packages need to go to the mission home? Questions for you to find answers to. I will wait to hear from you, mailed letters yesterday.Love you tons,
Malynne: Yes this is the email that I will be using through out the rest of my mission :)
Mom: Braden Erickson got his mission call on Thursday. He's going to Uganda! I talked with Loren a bit about it this morning, and Braden is so excited. He reports May 29. His mission covers Uganda, Ethiopia, and parts of Sudan. He was told to bring 8 short-sleeved white shirts and sandals.Makayla wants to know what color you're wearing.
Malynne: That is awesome! He is going to love going on a mission. Is he English speaking?
And Makayla I am wearing a bluish green color and a flower skirt
Malynne: So I only have like 60 seconds left on the email for today. Hopefully in the field I will have more time. I will write as soon as I get there and tell you when my p-day is and stuff. :) I love you all so much! Talk to you on Tuesday!
