January 31 2013
Hello, I normally wouldn't write on a Thursday, but I have the opportunity today, so here goes: I took care of the problem that was keeping me from getting mail (they were actually holding it at the post office), but I still haven't gotten all of the mail that they were holding back from me. If any letters you sent me do get returned to you, just send them back to the mission office, and this time they will get through to me. To respond to a few of the questions you asked me: yes, they gave me a coat at the mission office, and I've bought a sweater, gloves, and a couple long-sleeve shirts, so I'm no colder than anyone else; yes, my area is Spanish, and yes, we have a car (2012 Toyota Corolla — Silver); Most of our teaching is in Spanish, but most other things are in English (so my Spanish is getting better, but not very fast);  yes, I got my baggage reimbursement, but it was in cash (because they're not giving me a missionary debit card because who knows?). On Monday, I didn't tell you because I didn't want you to get super excited over nothing, but on Friday we got a call from the mission office telling us we needed to be at the Mexican Consulate on Tuesday morning to "pick up my passport." So, Tuesday we went to the consulate only to be told that I wasn't supposed to be there (even though they'd asked for me by name and all of the other visa-waiters I arrived with were there at the consulate), so we drove back home (from the city). But today we got another call telling us we need to be at the consulate tomorrow morning (and the assistants came by and dropped off a super-special envelope that I'm not supposed to open), so I think my visa will be coming soon.
Love to all,
Elder Hall
