Wow!!! I thought this day would never come!! It feels like a year ago I left home! Mexico City is the gnarliest, most hood rat place I have ever been to! The CCM is laike the garden of eden to Mexico City! Its so pristine and beautiful and thenright outside of the barbed wire 10 foot high fence is drug lords and gangs and all that good stuff. The drive to the CCM was so crazy! People on scooters or motor bikes ride inbetween the traffic and no one uses turn signals they just do and go wherever there is a small space. The plane rides were exhausting and by the time I got here I smelt like Mcdonalds and BO!Yuck! It was cool arriving and getting the name tag and everything. My companion is Elder Gleason from Draper, Utah he is weird but just the companion I need. He picks me up when I am down and vice versa. He told me the coolest story how he broke his face and his dad straight up healed him by priesthood and faith. Awesome! and the next day was orientation super boring but I was still super pumped. So Friday hits and I am home sick so bad. I didn’t know any spanish and most people do. Should have paid attention….but anyways I just go through the motions. Study read pray. And Saturday hits and I’m about the same and it is driving me nuts why I felt that way. So I pray some more ya know.. gets a little better.. But sunday rolls around and we go to Sacrament meeting and everyone prepares a talk in spanish and they callyou up on the spot. Luckily I didn’t have to go. so then we meet with our brach president and I broke down. He asked if I missed my family and I broke. Tears streaming ya know me all emotional. Well he told me the most inspiring story about how his wife was depressed and overdossed on pills to take the pain away and was very sick and he prayed and said I am in thy hands, my wife is in they hands. He said if you save her and help me I will serve thee. With everything I have. Well that sunday he was called first counselor in the Presidency. He was like I cant do this! not right now with my wife and he instantly remembered his prayer. And she is okay and they are still happily married and have a little girl. He prayed for me and just embraced me. A kid who is from Idaho who can´t speak his language who he doesnt even know loved me and cared about me. It meant the world to me. Ill send a pic of him next weeek. His name is Presidente Portillo. We then went straight to a devotional video of Elder Holland and it was AMAZING!! He talked about conveting ourselves first! And so that is my goal. and so far so good.
