My first area is an island called Cuidad del Carmen. It's beautiful! My companion is Elder Armenta from Mexico and he's way sweet. He's really helping me alot with the language. I found a scripture that says something like "they mock me because I am slow of speech" that's me right now but I'm learning more and getting better at Spanish all the time.

Well hello! We got to Tuxtla G. around 8:30 last night and our Pres., his wife and others were all waiting for us. It was cool. Then we drove for an hour to the mission home where they fed us Pizza Hut. My first meal in Mexico - ha ha. It was funny! We slept on mattresses on the floor in the apartment where the assistants live. So, get this...my first area is an island called Carmen by the Yucatan! I'm so excited! My P-day is on Monday. I love you all so much!

Well, wha da ya know ... The US Consolate finally came through for us and we got our VISA's yesterday! We were up until midnight frantically getting our laundry done and packing. Then we got up at 2 a.m. and left for the airport at 3:00! The plan is to fly to Dallas, then to Mexico City and from there to Tuxtla Gutierrez. Yeh! I'm stoked! It'll be awhile before I recover from the jet lag and culture shock but I'll keep in touch as often as I can. In the meantime, keep the e-mails coming: Bharris@myldsmail.net Chau !
