Safe and Assigned

Elder Garner with President and Sister Lopez
Hello everyone!
So sorry I couldn't call in Hong Kong or Manilla. I swear, Manilla is the oddest, craziest, and most wild place on the earth. Especially the airport. Holy smokes. I'll explain more about the rest of our travel adventures in my next email. President Lopez said that this email is solely for us to tell our parents that we are safely in Bacolod (approx 8:56 pm our time), in the Mission Home in North Bacolod, and doing well. I will tell you about my interview with President Lopez though real quick that we had about an hour ago. Basically, he told us what zone we are in, what area, and who our trainers are. I'm leaving for the Cadiz Zone tomorrow at 4:00 pm our time, in the Caduhaan Area, and my trainers name is Elder Praillia. Apparently he's native Filippino, and speaks almost no english...(yay me?) All I know is that I am in for a serious ride. I know the first 3 months will be rough, because President Lopez said so, haha. So please keep me in your prayers. I will explain a lot more in my next email. I gotta go though. 
I love you all and deeply miss everyone. I hope you all are doing well! I can't wait to hear from you again.
