Mother's Day phone call with Megan

We called Megan on the number she had given us in an e-mail and she answered and the connection was great. It was Sunday evening for us and Monday morning for her. She then told us that she couldn't talk right then because they were packing to move to another apartment down the street. She said it was Election Day and the President Malit told them they had to be in their apartment by 3:00 p.m. due to anticipated rowdiness. So we set our alarms for 5:00 a.m. on Monday morning and called her back. It was then 7:00 p.m. her time and she answered and we had a great 1 1/2 hour conversation with her. Some of the highlights were:
Her old apartment didn't have dependable water and had termites.
Her new aparment had one floor so she and her companion didn't have to follow each other to the other floor...
She received a 'Dear Jane' from Abe Anderson stating he was married. She really wasn't sad as her earnest desire was for him to be happy and she had told him not to write her any more so they could both focus on what was best for each of them.
She has been able to find clothing quite easily in a 'uki uki' which sounds like a 'flea market' of sorts with clothing just piled up high and she sorts through it to find something suitable. Sounds like Megan's kind of shopping, doesn't it?
She said she must of done something good in her previous life to deserve to have President Malit as her mission president, because he is wonderful!
At the end of the conversation she sang, "Mother, I Love You!" I did great until then and of course, I was so choked up I could hardly say good-bye, but I still loved hearing that song from her!
