Hey fam!

All is well as always haha We are doing great here. Hermana Gardiner is the sweetest. She is super cute and loves to laugh at my dumb jokes so we get along great haha. The funniest thing happened yesterday in church. One of the families that we are teaching came to church and they brought their dog hahahaha we had no clue what to do. We invited her to tie it up outside but she insisted on keeping it with her so I just looked at Hermana Gardiner and laughed but luckily she got their a little late so it was just on the classes and not the sacrament meeting. Its just funny because the same family got to church late last week as well and they were just knocking on the door during the sacrament because here they close the door when they pass the sacrament. They are such a quirky funny family. Weve got a lot of explainning to do haha 

I love you all tons and hope you have a good week!!

Hey fam!!

This week has been great but kind of sad. There are just so many sweet families going through such hard times but mytestimony of the atonement has grown. Its amazing how strong the healing power of the atonement really is. We have seen lots of miracles and we had lots of new less actives in church! We also found a new investigator that looks like Aunt Jemema from the syrup bottle haha she is a cute and sassy little old ladyand I love her to death. 
I got permission today to go visit Jennifer in Conocoto she was the first investigator that got baptized in my mission a year ago. It was so fun to see her! Here are some pics of a few family home evenings that we had this week and the cute old people are the famous grandparents Perez. They are members for about 50 years and he was one of the first bishops here in Ecuador because the churchonly has 51 years here. Its amazing how much has happened in short little time!

I love you all and hope youhave a great week!

Hey fam bam! 

All is well here is paradise:) We had a ton to do this week! We had divisions and studies basically every day! We are seeing lots of miracles here and I feel so blessed to be Hermana Gardiners coomp. She is the sweetest! I had the worlds worst alergic reactions to some vitamen C pills and I broke out in hives all over my body and she had to rub stuff on my back every night ahahah she is a champ! 

On sunday it was the best thing ever! We were ableto reactivate a less active family a few weeks ago and the dad had been less active since he was 8 so he had never blessed the sacrament so he was ordained a priest last week and was able to bless the sacrament for the first time in his life and he is 28. It was the sweetest thing ever! I love the gospel and I love you all as well! Have a great week!!

Hey family! 
This week was great! I sure love you all tons and Hope you are enjoying life. We are finding lots of less actives and lots that are going to progress! We are excited! I still love this work with all of my heart and Im sorry but Im never coming home. Im going to run away to a place called Taisha in the jungle part of Ecuador to live like Tarzan so they dont make me go home:)
Emarrassing moment of the week... It started to rain and we took out my umbrella and everything was going great but we left it outside to dry off while we ate lunch at a memebers house and when we went outside we say that there was brown stuff all over my umbrella and we thought that is was dog poop or something but it didnt smell like it so I looked in my bad to see if it came from there and sure enough there was a rotten banana from like a week and a half ago that a different memeber gave us that I forgot to take out hahahaha the memeber just looked at me and died laughing because it was the grossest banana I have ever seen. It was completely black and everything was squished out.
I love you all tons!!! Have a great week!

Dear fam bam! 

This week was great! We are finding some new families to teach! We also had a conference like every day! We had leadership cousel, zone conference and mini conference. Hermana Gardiner and I are pretty much pros at giving capacitaciones. We have given like 4 in the past 2 weeks. All is well here in paradise! I dont have a lot of time to write but thats nothing new! haha I love you all tons!!

Embarressing moment of the week: So I let Hermana Peralta wear one of my slips and she finished her mission so she left it in the offices for me and I wore my white skirt to the zone conference. Long story short I forgot to put on a slip and you could totally see right through my skirt. SO the mission nurses came like an hour before the conference was finished and they gave me a little bag and it just so happened to be my slip! I was so happy! Nurses save lives my dear fam!

I hope you all have a good week!!!
