Getting Visa in Las Vegas

Monday, September 22, 2014 we headed to Las Vegas to get our Mexican visa.  Our appointment was for 12:30, so we had plenty of time to drive even with the damage to the road near Overton, Nevada.  We found the consulate and then went for lunch.  After arriving at the consulate we had a few minutes and Craig made friends with a guard.  He took us upstairs to view the art exhibit they were showing.  We decided we liked the Mexican artist Roberto Rivas.  He had some nice paintings.  The other artists were more modern and not so much to our liking. 
When we were finished we went back downstairs and the other young missionaries were there, eight Elders and two Sisters.  They had flown down from the MTC. It took a little over an hour of waiting.  we all had to get fingerprinted and our picture taken.  The visas were put in our passports and we reviewed the information and then we drove home.  Fairly painless trip.  We are now ready to enter Mexico as far as the Mexican government is concerned.  Six weeks to go before entering the MTC, it is getting closer.
