July 13, 2011: Good-bye Provo--Hermana Bowles

Kristin left the MTC this morning at 5:30 for an 8:30 flight to Atlanta.  We got a phone call at home from her at 7:30 am and 2:30 pm.  She sounds great but tired.  It ended up that all the missionaries going to the Lima MTC were able to get on the same flight this morning to Atlanta.  They were flying to Peru at 5:30 Atlanta time.  She said that one of the airport workers spoke Spanish over the intercom and they couldn't understand a thing!!  They looked at each other and thought Oh, no, we are in trouble!  I reassured her that she wasn't even 1/2 way through her training but still she was a bit deflated.  Her bags ended up weighing 51 pounds each but they let it slide and didn't charge her extra.  She should get to Lima at about 11:30pm.  This kind of makes the mission "official" now and I guess I will stop driving by the MTC in hopes of a sighting!  I know Kristin will love South America--we are thrilled for her.  Bienvenidos a Peru
