Faster than a condor on Cotopaxi

Well this week went by faster than a condor on Cotopaxi. Hermana Barraclough and I did a couple of exchanges and that is always a fun twist in the week. One day when we did an exchange and when we all four got home and my companion and I were dying of hunger and Hermana […]

Don’t you just love the smell of wood?

The 2nd week of the transfer is always great. Well, who am I kidding, every week is great! But this one was special because Hermana Barraclough and I attended 4 conferences (leadership, zone, zone, stake) and put into practice what we are learning. For example, we were taught to be friendly and real with every […]

Maldita Tentaciòn

  The first week of a new change is always a blast. My new companion and I started off our relationship being stuck in the house for 48 hours straight. Now that is called bonding time. Luckily, I think she is hilarious and we get along great. On Monday and Tuesday we decided to paint […]

Above all, Love one another

Hello folks! This week was Powerful. We started strong at a leadership meeting in Quito where we got to here from Elder Montoya (our area president). He is so so wise and a literal spiritual genius. He spoke to us about the importance of teaching with love. What do new missionaries need to overcome their […]

Happiness in a nutshell…

This week was a spiritual adventure! The thing about the mission is that one has to set high goals and expectations in order to work to one’s full potential. This is good and we see lots of success, however with high hopes comes high disappointments. This week I have learned that we need to put […]

Doing good in the world today!

Wowee folks! The weeks are flying and the  mission is great. Sister Beutler and I are working hard and seeing results! There is seriously nothing better. One of my favorite moments from this week was in a lesson with Mayra and Jorge (married couple with a baby). We taught them the Word of Wisdom which […]
