No matter who you are or where you come from, there is nothing better than a "letter from home."
Kathleen will have very limited access to email and no access at all to phone calls from home.
Beginning on July 22 you can write to Sister Leausa while she is at the MTC. She will be there for six weeks learning the Tagalog language and preparing for the Philippines. Here is her address if you would like to write to her.
