Nathan arrived in Mexico City and emailed around 4pm, PST on Wednesday, January 27th.
I have arrived safely in Mexico City and am currently emailing you from the MTC. The travel went smoothly. I met up with some sister missionaries in Phoenix.
We are all very excited. I did not feel nervous at all navigating the airport with a pack of missionaries by my side.
While we were waiting for a pair of missionaries that didn't show, we talked to some kind policemen by the taxi services. They didn't speak a word of English. I wish I had my Spanish copy of the BOM. One of the sisters handed him an English copy. I was able to talk with him a little bit. I told him we were Mormons and asked if he had friends who were LDS. Then I told him we believed Joseph Smith was a prophet.
The kind people that came to pick us up spoke very little English as well.
