Villahermosa | Mexico
Called To Serve
July 2018 - July 2020
***Today Andrew departed the Mexico City CCM for Villahermosa! He has been looking forward to this moment forever it seems. We received a quick note from him when he arrived and also a letter from the mission office with pictures attached. Elder Simonsen looks happy and ready to serve!
Well shoot! hahahaha. I finally made it to Villahermosa!!! I’m not gonna lie, it´s hot as balls but I can do it. We have just been doing some training stuff today and then we´ll get paired with our comps soon. It’s going to be dope!!! I get to email tomorrow so it’s all good. Wish me luck !
Love you guys!!!
I actually get to email today!! Holy smokes! My first area is insane! hahahaha We are in this tiny little city outside of Villahermosa called Frontero. It’s in the middle of the jungle so I have to figure out what’s going on. hahahaha It is going to be freaking awesome, I can already tell. Just getting here makes me want to learn Spanish so fast because I legit can’t talk to anyone. hahaha.
My comp is a gringo from Beaver Utah and he seems like he is dope! He said he will really help me out with the Spanish. His name is Elder Albrencht and he is sooo chill. He has about a year in the mish so he’s got the language down for sure and can help me with anything that I’m going to need. We live in this upstairs apartment in the pueblo! It is about a billion degrees and I’m sweating my balls off here already. Not only is it super hot but the humidity is insane. As soon as I walk outside I’m instantly wet. Actually it’s so hot in our apartment that I’m just always wet. hahahah This will take some time to get used too! My comp said that we have a baptism scheduled for Thursday so we´ll see how that goes hahaha.
Holy! I’m so excited to be here. I can’t wait until we can get out and teach! It is so unreal that I’m actually here. I have a lot to learn but it will come with time. I am so grateful for this opportunity and I know it’s going to be difficult but I just need to put some trust in the Lord! Right?!
Love and miss you!!!!
