Arrival in Cambodia!

Edward had a great MTC experience and is feeling comfortable with the language so far. He enjoyed his time there and was looking forward with great anticipation to teach the gospel in Southeast Asia.

With Elder Brady Call, an Orem High School friend, heading to Peru.  

Traveling with 11 other missionaries bound for Cambodia, they left the MTC Tuesday afternoon, May 21, 2013, and took the Front Runner to the airport. He flew to LAX for a three hour layover. We had a great telephone visit with him during that layover. His plane left LAX 1:00 a.m. Utah time and flew to Hong Kong arriving there Thursday morning (what happened to Wednesday?) at 5:45 a.m. (Wednesday, 3:45 p.m. Utah time). He called again from Hong Kong and had another wonderful visit with Emily (she made sure to give him domestic and international calling cards). Then on to Cambodia arriving on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. (Wednesday, 9:30 p.m. Utah time).

 This is a back alley in Edward's first area, Kampong Cham. Edward reports that this is not a typical street, most of the streets in the city are paved.
