Here they are trying to keep busy and not think about going home. These wonderful missionaries will be leaving us in the morning. We'll get up at about 4:30 to leave for the airport at 5:00. They have flights that leave at about 7:00. We find the bowling alley is a great way to get up some built up excitement. They have spent 18 months to 2 years together and have become like family to each other. After bowling a few games, we head back to the mission home and have dessert. Then I tell them they all need to be in bed by 1:00 a.m. because 4:30 comes fast. Watching them bowl is really entertaining. President Albright impressed them all by winning the games.
