Those of you that know Derek Strate can totally see this- since he's always ready to chat with people. He just called home from the Calgary Airport, he had 3 minutes before the boarding of the plane. Of course the past two hours he's been sitting with Allan F. Packer, General Authority from Utah who was up meeting with Stake Presidents and then the Calgary Missionaries.
he's doing great, has loved the Calgary experience and looks forward to
the next phase of his mission in Utah. He's flying down with Elder
Packer, Barfuss's nephew and a sister missionary who are all headed to the MTC.
