Brady sent this Email the day after he arived at the Peru MTC
hola!! this is so weird and crazy here. haha last night was ridiculous. we get off the plane there are all these Peruvian people just waiting for people. we could barely walk there were so many. we rode the a bus to the ccm (MTC) and it was like an hour. everybody was just in awe cause we are finally here. way weird. the food is a little different but pretty good. we just ate lunch. but they didn't tell us that you had to eat all of the food or you cant leave ha ha. it was tough cause i got too much food and seriously was gagging trying to just down it. i have a Latino comp and a American one cause we aren't in the same classroom as the Latinos because they are only here for 3 weeks. i have barely talked to the Latino one though ha ha its tough. my American is pretty cool though! i sat by him on the plane. i had a pretty good discussion with a peruvian girl i sat next to. she spoke English cause she lives in the u.s. but she was pretty interested! i wanted to give her my book of Mormon but they were my leather ones so i didn't. i wish i did though. all we have done today is a bunch of paper work and we all had a one on one meeting with the mission president of the ccm. hes a pretty cool guy. i guess they are a lot more strict on rules here. but that's OK! i really am so excited to get out into the field though. it will be awesome. we get like a 6 hour break now cause we didn't get here till like 1 last night so we can take naps or do whatever. i think we might play some soccer so im way excited. it was way nice talking to you guys yesterday though. it sounds like you are all doing way good. im excited to get back in the missionary zone though and start studying a learning. its funny trying to communicate with the Latinos elders. i love it ha ha. ill try and send home some pictures next time though because i forgot to bring my camera to the computers. the buildings are pretty nice here. the showers are way nice. this has definably been the toughest part of my mission so far. i think its just a culture shock though and hopefully it will be over soon! i hated the plane ride cause there was nothing to do but think! i know everything will get better though and this place will start feeling like home. i got 6 weeks here! im doing great though so don't worry about me! i love you guys!!
