4 Days Left- I'm excited to get going!

(David's notes: Zoe sent a lot of pictures this week. I'll post some of them. Here is the first. Take a good look... it's the last time you'll see Zoe with long hair for a while!
Don't forget that you can "follow" Zoe's blog by clicking on the follow button on the right side of the page and down a little bit.
Look for Zoe's "after" picture coming soon!)

Hola Hola!

4 days left in the MTC. Crazy!! We have training all of Monday and then we leave on Tuesday morning. I'm really excited to get going!
We've had a lot of fun experiences this week. We got to go to a HUGE book fair. Apparently they do this huge book fair every year and the Church had a Family Values booth. So we went and just walked around and told people to go to our booth. It was fun and really huge. They said over the course of the few days that it was up 300,000 people attend this book fair.
We have a lot of new missionaries and I've gotten to know some of them. One of them is from Laie, HI (the same place as BYUH) and so we got to talking. He's actually from Samoa and him and his family are converts. When he was young his dad was a Catholic Pastor. They met missionaries and his dad said he would listen to them if they could answer his questions. Long story short, his whole family is members of the Church now and he's serving a mission and is just a super happy guy! It's cool how so many people here have awesome stories.
Some other fun stuff I did this week was learn acro-yoga. One new Sister here knows how to do it, so she teaches some of us during gym time. It's really cool and I'll try to get some pictures and send it next week.
Also, don't forget I am changing locations, so send my mail to the mission home address.
