Hello from the Mexico City Missionary Training Center--I Arrived!

My mailing address is:
Elder Austin Ray Phillips
(Novembre 4th) (Branch 9 - District c)
Carretera Tenayuca-Chalmita #828
Colonia Zona Escolar, Gustavo A. Madero
07230 Mexico, Distrito Federal
Mexico

The day started early, with my flight leaving at 6:05 AM from Las Vegas.  In Houston I met up with some other missionaries for the flight to Mexico City.  It has been a long day so far--and it's not over yet :)  I am happy to be here but it is quite overwhelming.  My preparation day will be on Wednesdays.  For those of you who have asked me about packages, you can't send packages from the states to the Mexico MTC, but there is a company website that is set up to send next day letters and packages, www.missionarypackagemx.com.  

I love you all very much.  This work is going to be hard, but I'm happy and ready to do this!  My companion, Elder Swain, is going to Antofagasta as well.  Seems super chill.   The drive through Mexico City from the airport was very colorful,  it is a different world here. The best way to describe the food here at the MTC is "interesting", although I have only had dinner so far :) Talk to you next week!

Con Amor,

Elder Phillips
