Hey everyone! I honestly dont even know how to start this email. Its so crazy knowing that I am a missionary now. I LOVE IT! Being a missionary is honestly the best thing and the best feeling. Don't get me wrong it has been one of the harder weeks of my life for sure but it has also been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Thank you all so much for your emails, they really mean the world to me! Also they have a thing here that is like dear elder, just a little bit different. So you just send a normal email to email@example.com and then in the subject line you put my name and then 15A. Haha just in case you wanted to, my family has already sent me some and it makes my day! The CCM is seriously the most awesome place and lately the days have been flying by because there is just so much to do! The spirit here is so strong and the teachers I have are some of the most amazing people I have met(even though they speak Spanish most of the time haha). Honestly one of my first experiences speaking Spanish was pretty funny. It was literally right when we landed in Mexico City and we went into the bathroom and I asked the lady that was working in there where the soap was, well I thought I said soap but I actually said soup hahahah I was really embarrassed and she was so confused! My companions name is Hermana Stacey and she is amazing!! Oh my gosh I love her! She's super sassy and hilarious! And I am really glad that I lucked out with a great companion because it makes this experience that much easier. Also, I literally see Emily Wixom like all the time! It is awesome! She was one of the first people that I saw when I got here. The crazy thing is that we are in the same branch and there are only about 18 people in a branch and there are about 300 missionaries in the CCM. I am so grateful for this opportunity that I have to serve the Lord and I can already tell the difference that it is making in my life. I love you all so much and even though it is hard being away from you guys I know that it is worth it. Until next week! Hermana Stewart P.S. Haha this thing is super confusing so I really don't know how to add pics so hopefully it worked and I put some good ones haha.....,.
