I have been in the CCM (Mexico MTC) for a week as out this afternoon! It has been crazy and awesome! Mexico City is HUGE and crowded. But the CCM is like an oasis in the middle of the city! On all my flights we had a lot of turbulence and at each stop I met up with more missionaries! My companion here in the CCM is Hermana Cortes she is from the Bay Area in California and is also going to WKM too!
The first night I was here was New Years Eve, and the new year was greeted with a BANG. Literally. Lots of fireworks, cannons (blanks were being shot... I think) and guns! Oh and to not forget the dogs, music, sirens and whatnot that happens every night too!
My district here is awesome! And so is my zone! My district is almost like a family, not quite but I am sure we will get there.
Spanish is HARD. Goodness, I thought I knew some before, but no! But I know that I will pick it up fast with the help of the Spirit! And just being here in the CCM.
So this last week was Fast Sunday and it was great here at the CCM! Relief society was amazing! It was taught by President Patts wife, Hermana Pratt. Side note this was the Pratts last or second to last sunday as President of the CCM. It was amazing and in English! Sacrament meeting was all in Spanish, and I was asked right before it started to say the opening prayer! En Español! Thank goodness I practiced! It was amazing I could only understand bits and pieces but the Spirit was super strong! I can not wait till I am able to speak like that too!
Hope everyone is having a great start to the new year! I know I am!
but I am still
