1st Message from Singapore

My p-day is now monday and I don't know what that is in the states or when but it will be different. My 1st area is Singapore and one of the wards I work with makes is so I can go anywhere on the island.  Once I figure out how to send pictures I will. Singapore is amazing there is so much here, it is still getting processed the people for the most part keep to themselves but are really nice and I love 3rd Ward, they're so happy and excited.  1st Ward reminds me of home kind of.  They're all amazing.  Till next time.

A Comment from Karlene

Singapore, At Last!

Summer tried calling us from the Salt Lake City airport but called the old number instead. Her companion's father called our bishop to get our number then gave it to Summer. Once she got to LA, she finally called. Summer called us at 11:42pm Monday to talk to us. She is so excited to be going out into the field. Some of her things didn't fit so she is sending them home but got the little care box I sent just before she left the MTC for the airport. I sent her some of the peppermint from the field across the street so she has her favorite scent as well as her birthday card, SD card that she sent so I could unload it for her, and some stickers that she can use to dress up her letters. She misses us but is having a ball! I know it will be hard work but she will come home better than when she left (which wasn't bad, just needed a new outlook and patience).

Here's a picture of her in the Singapore airport with her Mission President and his wife, Pres. and Sister Mains.

Summer leaves the MTC tomorrow night to fly to Singapore with the other 23 missionaries also going there. They have a couple of layovers where they will be able to call home briefly so we may get calls at impossible hours of the night!
