So there was three of us Visa waiters getting sent to Vegas, so we woke up at 3:30 am and headed to the bus then from there to the airport. I was so certain that my big bag was going to be over 50 lbs, and I was so worried about it! then it got weighed and it was exactly 50 lbs. such a relief. It was a short flight to Vegas, there was about 26 of us as well walking around the airport and everyone was watching us! So as soon as we walked out it was freaking hot. It doesn't bother me because you can't complain, just learn to love it. So I don't even mind the heat at all. The first day we had breakfast with The Mission President and his wife, they are both amazing. So happy and friendly, they were all glad to see us get there safely. Then we went over to the church to get our trainers, my trainer is Elder Guiterrez, he is from the south side of Chicago and is a pretty funny guy. Our area is called Paradise! There are 3 Spanish ward members in our area, so there is a lot of work for us to do. We have a car, a 2013 Chevy Cruz! I love the air conditioning in it, we do a lot of walking as well. All we visit are apartments because that is all there is in our area! The first day I had the biggest headache in my life I can remember, and was just having kind of a rough time, but the next day was great! we met new people in the area and started to work. It has been a good week and I am happy to be here! There are a lot of Visa waiters in this mission, some going to Brazil have been waiting for 3 months and plus, but the Mexico Visa waiters always leave before 6. So all is good here in Las Vegas! Love and Miss all of you!
Elder Burningham & Elder Clayton Stetson's cousin going to Russia
He talked about serving in Northern Mexico during the devotional and I wanted to ask him if he served in Monterrey so bad, but then I got the chance! he said he loved Monterrey and loved the people.
Just another day in Vegas!
