So I and sixteen other missionaries leaving for Arcadia left the MTC at 4:00 in the morning and my flight left at 7:15, there was a 2 hour layover in Phoenix so about 11:15 we left for Ontario California where we were picked up by the mission president and his assistants. They had us write a letter when we got the the mission office to let our family know we made is safely We didn't get put with our trainer when we got there I don't know why instead we were put with another companionship for that night, I don't know why. The next morning though we got put with our trainer. My companion is Elder Adams from Payson Utah, he has been out for 20 months and this is his first time training. My first area is El Monte. Elder Adams previous companion was going to be giving a talk on Sunday, but he got transferred so I had the opportunity instead. I also attended my first Baptism Emmanuel Marin, he was a contact of Elder Adams had been teaching. I am happy to be here and I love my family.
