Hola Mama y familia y amigos! Here I am, a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints writing my first email. Where do I start? 

I got here and all the sudden it was go-go-go. They put me through so many lines and I got so many things (no kidding, the materials they give you weigh a ton! I'm going to have to be sending things home). Then I got on a bus and almost died of heat stroke. But I didn't, obviously so that was good. Then as soon as I got off the bus I heard, "Hola!" And I looked up and there was ELDER BRETT HIGBEE from my BYU ward. I couldn't believe it. So cool to see a familiar face so soon. Since then I've seen Elder McFarland, and Bradham from BYU, Hermana Sammi Lu? However you spell her last name and Sorensen from BYU anddddd Elder Wallwork! So cool. We are serving the Lord and it rocks. 

I live with three other hermanas and I love them all so much. My companion's name is Hermana Turley. She's from AZ and she is super sweet. Really strives to be obedient and has a strong testimony. (I need to find out her favorite flavor of cheese nips soon... get down to the nitty gritty). My zone and district are sososo chistosos (funny).
