My Dear Family,
You might be asking yourself right now: "Hey, wait a second, is Elder Christensen illegally using computers on a non-P Day?" Well I got super special permission to do it because..... OUR VISAS CAME!!! Me and Elder Dawson went to get the mail today and there was a bunch of travel plans in it. Everyone's was in there except for me, Elder Smith, and Elder Bradshaws, which I took as a really really good sign. We ran down to the travel office, but the door was closed. But we just walked right in expecting to see them hard at work on getting visas done for missionaries aaaaand they were watching the Hunger Games on their flat screen TV. Figures. Anyway, they told us that our visas had in fact gotten though and that we would be following the original travel plans we got (which I had thrown away as a sign of independence and disgust) and we're leaving Monday afternoon!!!! We have a two hour layover in Dallas, 6 hour layover in London the next day, 1.5 hour layover in South Africa, and arrive in Angola at 12:35 PM on July 22 local time I believe. Unfortunately Elder Bradshaw will most likely not be joining us because of his tonsils, but will be serving in DC with 3 others while one other is serving Arcadia. They'll probably send them out immediately after they get their visas in the middle of a transfer. Thanks for all your love and support. I'll write to you on Saturday night.
