I have safely arrived in Mexico! The MTC is amazing. I have never felt such a brotherhood from the people around me. I can already feel Heavenly Father´'s love for me as I take a big step in leaving for two years. A quick summary: we arrived at the MTC at around 6pm. (5pm there) We were all starving so they took us to eat in the cafeteria. We went through orientation. I GOT MY OWN NAMETAG. Then we got our companions! My companion is Elder Slade. He played volleyball in highschool! (hes 6 foot 5 inches). The final part of the day today if giving us the opportunity to write home about our first day in the mission. I can promise one thing to you. I have never been happier in my life. Knowing that I have people at home praying for me and knowing that I have Heavenly Father guiding me every step of the day is the greatest feeling in the world. Tomorrow we start classes, and get to work! I know I will love every minute here. Thank you for everything. I love you all. But more importantly, Heavenly Father loves us even more, and knows us personally. I dont know a better place to go when in need of comfort, help, guidance, or anything like that. All he wants is for us to come to him. I must end this first email, but I will email again next week (my Pday is thursdays). love you all! Ill write again soon. PS there are like 10 of us going to TJ here!
