"I have arrived in safe and sound. The flights went well for the most part. The layover in Dallas was kind of boring as I had to wait over 2 hours for the next missionary to arrive, but all is well. The other guys and girls are awesome. I think we`re all going to get along great. is beautiful, well so is for that matter. It was dark for most of the ten hour flight but I was able to take pictures of the Andes mountains as we were flying over them just north of Santiago. Beautiful stuff. The weather isn`t too bad here. Nice and warm and balmy, although nothing compared to New York or Missouri.
It`s absolutely crazy here as I can`t understand a thing, and as such, I do believe I got scammed out of about 10 dollars. Fun times. I expected it to happen so don`t worry about it at all. The MTC here is great, very beautiful. The capacity is only 88 people. I`m doing well overall. Hope all is well back at home."
