Elder Allred got his flight plans for Africa. On Monday, March 18th he will leave the MTC at 4 in the morning and go to the Salt Lake Airport. At 7:35 a.m. he flies to Washington, DC. In DC he will have a few hours layover. (He says 1 1/2 hours but another elder that's flying with him says 4 hours). From there he flies to Brussels, Belgium which is a 13 hr. flight. When they arrive Brussels he will have an 8 hr. layover. Finally he leaves Belgium and flies about another 6 hours to Cotonou, Benin. He will arrive there at 8:35 p.m. Tuesday night (American time). In his words, "We are basically flying for 2 days straight!"
He is the travel group leader, which means that he's in charge of all the missionaries that are flying with him. He has to make sure that everyone gets where they need to be and if anything goes wrong he has to contact church headquarters to fix it.
The French is coming along well and he is excited to leave for Africa.
