Hurray he emailed, now I may be able to sleep tonight. It’s short because he didn’t have much time but it’s enough…for now!
“Hey it´s elder hagen here, and I am at the MTC or CCM here in Mexico City!!! I have made it safe and sound with 30ish other elders and sisters, i have only been here maybe two hours and I love it, everything is so well kept, organized and invites the spirit. I am excited to be here, however, this is a general e-mail and will only have time normally to write for an hour on my p-day. I am safe and sound ready to serve.
And here is one he wrote personally to us, which I needed so much. He was very wise to not just send a general email but to write me personally. I may not always share the personal emails, but this one I thought was good info that everyone could hear.
“I wanted to describe my trip so far in a little more detail, when i went up the ramp, past TSA i waited awhile, had a bagel and some water, then boarded the plane. I felt like i was the only one who spoke english, but i met a man sitting next to me who had just gotten his citizenship in the US and is going to Guatemala who thankfully spoke english as well, excuse any errors in my typing i am trying to rush. I talked with him for a large portion of the flight, when we touched down, he helped me through customs, i was too nervous to go alone, i mean i essentially did, but he stayed in line in front of me intentionally. when i left customs there were two hermanos there waiting for me, they told me i was the first. a plane that went from Salt Lake to Dallas was on its way and had everyone else in it two hours after i arrived. from there we took the worlds sketchiest bus ride through mexico city, pothole after pothole, people driving mere inches from each other. and now i am here, safe sound, and typing, I love you all. Be safe
