Guess what that means in spanish? Yup! Brief, or short. I´m pretty sly, huh?

Well, Monday will be the start of my last week in the mission. Can´t wrap my head around that but am stoked to make it the best week yet! Will be heading to La Concordia (coast) and then getting lots of stuff ready for the following week with new missionaries and departing missionaries. Gotta get that baton handed off to my comp! :)

This past week we had MLC, zonf conf in Chillogallo, and zone conf in Puyo (the jungle). Thursday night we got in to Puyo and got to stay with the zone leaders down there, two of my best friends in the mish!! One finishes with me, and the other has about 10 months left. It was awesome hanging out with them. All the conferences went super well this week. Time flies when your busy. Today we went to the mall to go bowling, but it was PACKED. So we just got some lunch and came to the office to hang out and play some Star Wars Risk. For some one who has never seen any of the was TOUGH. Haha!

Love you all. Will write more next week. Until then...

Hey all,

This week I will be brief. 

We are continuing to be blessed with both trials and miracles. This week I am especially grateful for trials and small miracles. Last night we had a rough night of work. As you know, our sector is VERY active on the weekends. No one who we planned to visit was home, and many people in the street were far to busy to talk to us. None the less, about 5 minutes before going home, after a long, slightly frustrating night, a member from Washington DC calls out to us and thanks us for all we are doing here, and asking us about the work and our mission experiences. He had served in Paraguay and is currently with a few friends getting to know a few other South American countries. It was awesome talking to him and just getting a little reminder that God will never leave us alone. I am so grateful for these past ¨few¨ months in the mission, although I can hardly find ways to express that. The good times have made me more grateful than I ever though I could be, and the trials have made me stronger than ever. 

Was able to visit and work in one of my old sectors. One of the hardest and most rewarding sectors in my whole mission. 

We will be having missionary leadership council on tuesday, zone conference in Quito on wednesday, and heading into the jungle thursday/friday. Time to stride out!

Love you all.
