Hey Fam Bam!
I hope you all had a happy valentines day! haha This week was a little strange haha we only were working like 3 days because monday and tuesday we were locked in the house for carnaval and friday and saturday we were in Quito and its like a 6 hour bus ride. We found some new people though that are super great! But the highligh of my week was being able to meet Elder Holland. He speaks so powerful and has a really funny sense of humor. I was laughing and crying and pretty much passed through every emotion possible in about two hours. I love that dear apostle and it was even cooler because we all got to shake his hand.

Hermana Tello had a dentist appointment in Quito so I came back to Puyo with Hermana Tonga and she is great! Heres some pics
I love you all lots!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey my dearest fam!

This week we had interviews with President Christensen and I seriously love him! I always leave feeling so great and spiritual rejevenated. The spirit is always so strong and I cry in just about every single one cuz the spirit is so strong! But everything here is great! I had an intestinal infection again haha I think this country is trying to kill me little at a time! Not really haha. Im in love with Puyo and Im doing great here. Hermana Tello and I are doing great things with our investigators but I know it really isnt us. The Lord is working hard with our investigatos to help them change. We have one investigator that has/had addictions to drugs and everything and he has been clean for a month and comes to church every week. He has chagned so much and we when visit him there is a feeling way different in his home. Every time that we visit him he talls us how him and his dad are getting along better and he is helping his parents. He made the decision to go back to school and study and he has been studying his little heart out and took his exams on saturday. He also told us that he has friends that have been inviting him to do drugs but at first he just gave them excuse that he didnt have money and things like that. He told us that the last time that they invited him he told them that he doesnt want to do it ever again because God is driving his life not drugs and his friends told him that they are going to stop inviting him and that they respect the decision that he made to change.
I am dong great and loving every second that I have here. and I hope you are all doing wonderful! I love you all tons!!!

Hey fam bam!
This week was great! We had 7 investigators and lost of less actives that came to church yesterday! We are teaching a family of 5 and the little kids are so great! Their parents have to work but the kids come to church every sunday. They are only 13, 11, and 9 years old and have to walk like 3.5 kilometers and be in a bus for 40 minutes to come. They are so stinking adorable and every sunday that they come I just want to hug them but I cant cuz its a mission rule haha. Our little branch is struggling a little because we have lots of less actives but the leaders are willing to helps us out and we have lots of plans that are going to help reactivate lots! We also had a conference with some of the apostle this week. It was a world wide broadcast and it was great! I love listening to the counsel of them and their testimonies! They speak with so much power. In a could weeks Elder Holland is coming to visit our mission! Im super excited to get to meet him!! 

I am doing great and today we went to a little park that has a trail through part of the jungle and it was so stinkin pretty! I have some more pics for you! I LOVE YOU AL TONS! I hope you are all serviving in the snow while im dying of heat stroke haha

Love you!!

Welcome to the jungle aka heaven aka Puyo! We have the worlds smallest zone haha we only have 10 missionaries here in the oriente. We went to a waterfall today in BaƱos and i dont have a whole lot of time to write! But the week went awesome and Hermana Tello and I are kicking butt in the work! We are finding lots of new people and have lots of people working towards baptism! I love you all and hope you are doing great!! Ps one of the Elders, Elder Memmit is from Nevada and knows Jake Shumway. He told me that he served in his ward before he came on the mission.
Love you all TONS!! and Hope you are doing well! Have a good week!!
