This was probably the first time in her life that Ashlyn has used a payphone, I think.
Luckily, she said her suitcases were only 45 and 48 pounds each, falling within the weight guidelines for the airlines. She put some heavy items in her carry-on. Whew!
At 10 am, we got another call from her at the Atlanta airport. This one was much shorter and much more emotional. This was the last time we talked until Christmas Day.
Ashlyn sounded humble and confident on the phone. She is ready to go teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and yet surprised at how fast the time has gone since Aug. 21st when she checked into the MTC in Provo.
She will meet her mission president & his wife, The Woodbury's, this afternoon when she arrives in Louisville. We have heard wonderful things about them & other members in the area!
