Life in the Field: First Week in Mexico!

Last visit to the Provo Temple while at the MTC.
Dallin arrived in Mexico on Monday, October 27, 2014. He and his MTC district traveled together and were picked up by missionaries and taken to the Mission President's home in Guadalajara. They all spent the night in the home, and on Tuesday were given companions and sent out to their first areas. Dallin is having a wonderful experience in Mexico. Everyone is friendly, and loves the missionaries. He has been able to have dinner with many families and says the food is delicious. He hasn't eaten anything "weird" yet, and has even had pasta twice (which he thought was quite funny!) The children in Mexico celebrated Halloween, which was also fun for him to see! He is enjoying his companion, Elder Moreno from Mexico, who only has about 10 more weeks in the mission field. Dallin is enjoying his time and anxious to share the gospel with the people of Mexico. He is currently serving in the Libertad Ward of the Refoma Stake in the city of Guadalajara. He and his companion have a very large apartment with a functioning kitchen and bathroom. Everything is going great, besides a few blisters, and Dallin is loving every minute!

One last photo with Elder Anderson!
This was where the Elders slept when they arrived at the Mission President's home.

Dallin's "Frozen" bed. Thanks to Lauren for the poster and pillow. Dallin chose the pink blanket while shopping at the missionary mall. Too funny!
