December 26, 2016

hey im on real fast. I forgot my camera in the house but i promise you to send them the next time, and dad because i couldn't explain where i lived very well on sunday these are the cordinates to the house that we live in. Its right in front of a baseball park. yes they do use the park but only for softball and no there not very good. haha 

-2.174379, -79.900483 

Just copy and paste these coordinates in google maps and im sure that it will come up.  but our actual tracting area is called Sauces 2 Sauces 7 and Sauces 9 and a little of an area called the Garzota.  

hey also when you guys asked me about the day that i have to go home i was thinking about it and i really didnt know at that point cause i usually dont like to think about it not because i dont want to see you guys but its cause its really cool here. and its fun to see that. cause at the start of my mission i honestly didnt like ecuador. I thought it was dirty, i thought they served too much rice, i thought a bunch of stuff that i shouldnt have thought haha, but its cool cause the little things that dirty, or too much rice doesnt even matter anymore to me.  So thats why but i ended up asking president cause i was thinking about it, and he said because he is leaving at the end of June like i think the 28th and there will be a new president the misionaries that have to leave would be like 2 weeks before or i could extend 6 weeks and be able to help out a new president for 4 weeks. But i dont know yet. haha looks like i have some praying to do ahah. 
well there is not much to inform about the investigadors cause we basically dont have any. This whole past week we have been stressing out about these pictures. We tried really hard to get them all out. I honestly havent felt so stressed bout somthing in my entire life mostly because some of the pictures got mixed up so it ruined 187 pictures and i had to fix it. but thats alright. Elder Contreras and i made ourselves detectives and figured out how to fix it!! so its all good.

Also there will be a huge change in missionary work now!! There will be a world wide training this January and they are going to change the schedual!! I know nuts! that means Dallins mission is not going to be the same as the most part of mine and not even close to Joshs. They are going to have to come out with a new mission manuel and everything!! but he didnt tell us much he just said the mission presidents are going to have a little more wiggle room to change things and so are the missionaries. like Study time is not just going to happen just at one espfesific hour. It going to happen at a time when the missionaries think its best. 

any ways sorry i dont have my camera i promise ill send them next week

We had a great time Skyping with Caleb while we were visiting my family in Texas.  It was so fun to see his happy face.

He talked about an activity that the mission put on for the area in Guayaquil.  They combined with the Guayaquil West mission as well.  They built mangers (or manger scenes) around a huge amphetheater and took tons of pictures of the families who came to the activity.  Caleb was very excited about it and really loved serving the community.

He told Allyssa that he wants to go to school with her. And Josh wants them to go to school with him too.

He is doing great and loves Ecuador.

hey mom and dad

(I asked these questions and he answered)

1. What was your ward called in Quevedo?
in Quevedo it was the Quevedo north stake. the Nicolas Infante ward. 

2.  What is your ward called now?
Now its the Kennedy Stake, Isidio Ayora ward.  luckly there is a companionship of hermanas here too because its really hard to work the sector haha. 

3.  What should we plan for Christmas skyping?  (Assuming you still can do that).  We will be at Grandma and Poppy's this time, so Josh and Magen will be on a computer and both of you can skype at the same time, that way you can see them through the computer.  It is their turn with Hunters when it is our turn with Poppy and Grandma.
i still trying to think of when we can skype. its kinda hard to plan at this time because there are alot of unexpected things to do, when president calles and stuff.
ya that sounds good.  lets plan at 1 or 2 o clock my time christmas day and if it comes out to be a bad time i will have to find somway to tell you 
mom! president invited us, by us i mean all the elders in the office, to eat lunch with him on christmas at like one or 2 so i think ill have to call like at 3 or 4
4.  Do you know Elder Garrett Taylor?  He is from our stake.  I think his parents don't live here anymore but he moved from our stake.  He has been out a little bit long than you, but only a few more months.
and yes i know him he is a super great elder.  he is one of the zone leaders in one of the super bigger zones.  i got to know him really well in a bus one day and we were talking a stuff and he said he lived in highland almost all of his life and he even worked at riddles haha and i think at the same time as me, but he worked in the bakery haha
I have to go write now. We can talk about all the stuff im doing and the great experiencias on christmas :)

December 10, 2017

Well i got transferred again now im in Guayaquil.  Its pretty cool here and ive already had some great experiences.  This last tuesday we picked up a group of missionaries from the airport and i really love these guys you can tell they worked super hard to learn the language because a few of them already came with a bunch of scritures memorized. And i asked one of them what motivated him to work so hard to memorize scriptures and i could really see the sincereness that he has for teaching. he said thats its because he wants to teach by the spirit. and the spirit cant work with an empty tank. It needs ammo.  It really made me think about the importance of memorizing not just as missionaries but as normal people too.

hey mom and dad i have like no time to write right now but i got transferred.  I work in the office now with president as one of his asistents.  so this whole week weve been working like bees and i almost have not working in my sector haha weve actually have only worked there 3 hours this whole week. President is tring to make this christmas perfect or somthing haha.  But way way buisy. Thats also why im writing on saturday. cause pday in the office is saturday. im excited to day because we get to to exchanges with the zone leaders and that is going to be fun!! Choa tell the family that i love them
