One Very Long Day

We awoke on Thursday morning, June 28, 2012 at 5:00 AM.  The  MTC van to the airport picked us up in Provo, Utah at 6:45 AM to deliver us to the airport in Salt Lake City.  We are on our way to our mission!

Sister Robinson, trying to take a least one good picture of myself!

At 11:15 AM, we lifted of and headed to Seattle, Washington for a layover before boarding an AirBus for the Netherlands.  At 2:00 PM, MDT, we lifted off on our long flight to Amsterdam.

The flight was long, 8 plus hours, but the 'jet lag' factor was an 8 hour time difference so upon arrival in Amsterdam, it was 8:30 AM on Friday, June 29, 2012, somewhere over the Atlantic we had lost a day, or rather a good night's sleep.

  On June 29, 2012 we were met at the airport by President and Sister Burbaker, the current president, and the AP Elders-- Elder Van De Graaff and Elder Van Overbeek.  I'm not sure who was happier to see whom!  Sister Brubaker even had flowers for me!  What a wonderful sight.  It all felt unreal.  However, as odd as it may sound, I felt like I was coming home.

Hallo Belgie and Nederland.  Wij zijn blij u te ontmoeten!
