Shane leaves for Africa in 3 days!!!!! He is SO excited. I think to say that, is an understatement. His life in Africa definitely will be a lot different than what he's used to. In his words... everything in Cote D'Ivoire is going to be opposite as it is in America and France. it is funny to compare with the Toulouse france missionaries in my district because like they will be eating cheese and bread and pastries and such where as i will be eating yucca root, fufu, and fish head! how crazy is that. We have no hot water, unless we want to warm it up ourselves, we have no fridge or AC, no postage, no ice cream, scattered usage of electricity, and you wanna know the crazy part?..... I AM SO EXCITED FOR IT! I am so excited to be able to finally get out there and serve the African nation!
He also accomplished one of his main goals while in the MTC. He read the entire Book of Mormon front to back! He finished in exactly 8 weeks. Way to go Shane! We're so proud of you!
