Reports to the Mexico MTC

 Today was the day we have all been excited and anxious for.  We got up bright and early at 5:30 am to get ready to go to the airport.  We got Kimball all checked in and he was ready to go.  We talked for a few minutes and gave some hugs (without crying at Kimball's request), until Hope fell apart.  She sobbed until he was out of sight, all the way home, and for a while after we got home.  Her little heart was broken!

Hola Familia!

     Well, first things first... I'm starving right now, but dinner is in a little bit so that's good. Anyways, the plane ride and all that stuff felt super long but it was exciting. All three of the other missionaries on my flight from SLC are in the Lima North Mission too, so that's cool. One of them is Conner Mantz neighbor! Its a pretty small world, Ive already learned that. One more thing about the airport in Mexico, they plastered the place with Ebola warnings and restricted anyone coming from Liberia and stuff like that. Kinda crazy. 
     Another thing, if you thought Barstow, California was ghetto then just come to Mexico City! It{s the craziest place Ive ever been! But I love it here, Ill send you guys some pictures for sure. The houses are all built on top of each other. It was crazy! I was just about positive the bus was going to explode! The roads here are insane but I love it, its an adventure for sure. There's not really any lane lines so people just swerve in between each other, no wrecks though. They also drive really close. The bus I was on kinda sounded like a cheese grater shredding metal or something like that. Everything is fenced and surrounded by barbed wire too... Home sweet home. haha
     The MTC isn't anything like the city though, its super nice! My companion is Elder Weaver (first name is Jordan), hes a pretty chill guy, I think Were gonna get along pretty well. Hes a little bit quiet but hes cool. Well that's about all for today right now! More details to come!
