Elder McOmber and I left Rigby, Idaho in the rain, just about how I felt, sort of dreary and sad, but a new adventure and we were doing what we were suppose to do--serve the Lord! Alot of excitement and apprehension in the air. I prayed that I had everything we needed, but it is not a good trip unless you forget something. We also prayed that we could do all that we were called to do-be a medical specialist to the missionaries in the California, Long Beach Mission and Elder McOmber is to be a jack of all trades and help as needed.
Our start at the MTC was shaky to say the least. I developed a very bad cold/sinus problem/virus. I don't remember the first 3 days and spent 24 hours in bed one day--nothing but time seemed to help. Lonnie got the same bug as we were driving to CA, but we both are starting to get better now--3 weeks later.
