I feel like we are packing her up for an extended camping trip and not an LDS mission. But I guess in many ways, going to the Philippines will be like camping: no hot water, bucket baths, mosquitoes and lots of other creepy crawly things, cooking on camp stoves, hiking around all day long, etc. We had the privilege to meet with a little sister missionary that was born in the Philippines and serving in the Ogden Utah mission. She was able to give Andrea some great advise about what to expect (and not expect.)
We just want to say thank you to everyone that has brought supplies and helped us get her ready. Without your help, Andrea would not have been so ready for the Philippines.
