Today we woke early and got started on a very busy day. First on the agenda was writing yesterday's blog, then head out the door to teach our last Institute class. There were enough competing activities for our class members we were not sure how many would be there. With all that, it was exciting to have 16 there.
After giving our farewells, we left Institute and made a quick run home where Sister Oveson was dropped off to make calls to family, and Elder Oveson headed back to the Church for one last Stake Presidency Meeting. After calls Sister Oveson took a Tuk Tuk back to the Church to join in Stake Council, where we were both invited to share our feelings. We have learned to truly love the leaders of the Phnom Penh South Stake and the members. Following Stake Council, we joined them for lunch at a Khmer restaurant. Several of our friends made sure we were able to order foods we would enjoy. One of the leaders asked us if it was our last meal. We assured him we have several more meals with friends before our return home.
This afternoon we were able to focus on completing three photo books of our adventures in Cambodia. We were excited with how they turned out, but a little disappointed the vendor did not give the option to share our project. These books will be on display at our open house to give a glimpse of what we have seen in our two years in Cambodia.
We volunteered to pick up the Thurstons from the airport tonight as they return from their trip to the Manila Temple with a group of members. The flight is scheduled to arrive around midnight. It is a good thing we don't have early church tomorrow!
