So the main thing you have been waiting for. The Travel Plans! Sorry it has taken so long. I got them last Friday so I haven't had the opportunity to tell you till now. I wrote a letter about them Monday, but you won't get that till today or tomorrow anyways. So, I leave August 17th. I have to report to the Travel Offices by 5:00 a.m. Wow... My flight leaves for Dallas at 8:20 if I remember correctly. I arrive there around 12:20 p.m. and then my next flight takes off at 5:50 p.m. and I land in Guatemala at 8:15 p.m. I'm not sure how the time differs in these plans so figure it out. I'll be two hours ahead when I call. I'm so excited to go though. My companion and I are on different first flights (one of the other guys for the other companionship in my district, Elder Holst, is on my flight though, and we have gotten pretty close over the last couple weeks). Also, I found out that Elder Sakevich is on my flight. Way excited about that. Even more excited to see Elder Johnson, aka Ryan. Over the last week, nothing too exciting has happened. I had a TE. The guy that helped us, just explained to focus on the person and not the lesson. "We are teaching people, not lessons." I also had TRC. That went really well. My companion and I are really starting to click when it comes to teaching, so it is cool. Oh, tell Billy when you see him that I have a friend of his in my District. His name is Elder Bishop, and I guess they had Seminary together or something. haha. Oh also, devotional last night was good. We had elder David F Evans of the Seventy speak to us it was cool! 20 seconds!!!! Expect a package sometime next week!!!!!!!!!!
I love you all! Thanks for everything that you have done for me:
Love always and forever,
Elder David Bitner
