So on Monday, May 2nd Noble was in transit to the Philippines. Out of his MTC district, 1 sister and 2 Elders, besides Elder Hamblin were sent to the Cauayan Mission. Sister Pulu's family made them all a big lamb dinner before they flew out of Salt Lake. When they arrived at LAX (Los Angeles) another Elder had his family meet them there for their several hour layover. The missionaries family lent Noble a cell phone.
It was so great talking and laughing with him. But I tried to get in as many questions as I could so I didn't share the phone much with Todd. His MTC companion was sent to another mission in the Philippines. Noble was waiting for a flight at 2am to Hong Kong which was a 14 hour flight. Then he would have another lay over before the 1 1/2 hour flight to the Philippines. Then he had an 8 hour bus ride to his mission. We talked and joked but when it was time to say Goodbye, I was a blubbering fool because it was so good to talk to him and I miss him so much. Noble is in the right place and doing the right thing.
