Well I have almost made it through my first week here at the CCM (Spanish Version of the MTC) and I am doing well! The campus here is beautiful and the people are so nice. Sorry I don´t have any pictures of it though because I forgot my cord to connect my camera to the computer and they don´t have card readers. I´ll be sure to send all that I can though once I get into the field!
Anyway so I´ll give an overview of the week. So I arrived in Mexico with a whole bunch of Elders and a couple of Sisters and at the airport there were some people waiting for us. We got all of our stuff and hopped on a bus headed to the CCM. One thing I have to say is that I am so glad I don´t have to drive here! They drive like maniacs! It´s amazing to me that there isn´t an accident every ten seconds. Anyway, so to get to the CCM you drive through this kind of dumpy part of town but then when you go through the gates it´s like you´re in a totally different place. Everything is so green and perfectly manicured here. I feel really blessed to get to be here for the next six weeks.
Once we got here I found out who my companion was going to be and then we went through some orientation stuff and then we got to relax the rest of the day which was really nice because after that early flight I was exhausted!
So my companion is Hermana Badger and she is from Casper, Wyoming and she is going to be serving in the California Carlsbad Mission. She is really sweet and we get along well. She did not have any Spanish before coming to the CCM so I have been able to help her a lot which has been good for both of us.
The food here is good for the most part. The only thing I have not liked is the Carrot Lasagna they had...not a good combination.
I am enjoying my time though and trying to soak up everything I can while I am here!
I am so excited to get to be a missionary and to be able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to bless many lives with it. The church is true!
I love you and miss you all.
