Happy Old Year?

Happy Old Year!!!! I think that here in Ecuador they celebrate the 31st more for finishing the year than welcoming the new one. For example, one custom is to burn a paper mache doll thing at midnight. It’s supposed to represent burning 2016. The people here in Ambato for real are paper mache masters. My companion and I even bought a small one to celebrate!

Besides the world turning one year older I also completed 1 year in the mission this week! AHHHHHH what is happening! It feels good. I like having a year. The best gift was that I got to do exchanges with Sister White in Latacunga (my first area)!!!! As we were walking from appointment to appointment I swear I ran into half the ward. It was great to see everyone again and especially to know that the ward is progressing! I’ll send a picture of me with our upstairs neighbors Ximena and Camila (they were basically our family while I was there).
One way that we saw the Lord’s hand in the work was when we got a call on Wednesday Morning. We had been specifically praying to know what we should do to help Patricio progress as an investigator. We hadn’t been able to teach him for a week or so and were thinking it might be best to not visit for a while. Sister Riley and I both decided separately that we needed to wait until he contacted us, to show that he really wants to learn and improve. That morning during studies we got a call… from Patricio! We called a sister to go with us and ran over to teach him. It had be a hard week for him and he was so prepared by the Lord. He came to church yesterday and I know that he is feeling the Spirit more and more in his life thanks to this Gospel.
Keep working hard and loving everyone. Dont be afraid to pray for miracles!
