Hey family,
how is everyone doing? we had another full week here in Ecuador. there hasnt been too much new this week. we are getting ready for the General Confernce this week, always a good expirience. we should have a few baptisms for the 10 of April. those that had there baptism dates for this past weekend dont feel like they are ready so we are going to help them be prepared for the week after conference.
me and my companion get along really well so that deffintly helps with the teaching. we are trying to find new people to teach which is pretty tuff in this sector but nothing that we cant do. the ward members are great here. most of them have been leaders in the church and know how the things should work. they are helping alot with the investigadores.
i hope that all at home is well. looking forward to seeing everyone soon.
love and miss you all.

Elder Smith 22 Mar 2010

Hello Family,
Looks like I missed you guys today but that’s ok. How is everyone at home doing? I hope that all is well. We had a good week here in the Sanborondon de Ecuador. We met some new people this week that we are hoping will be able to complete with the commitments that we have given them so that they can be ready to for their baptism. We are excited to be here in this sector and to be able to teach the people.
There hasn’t been too much new stuff that has happened this week. We are getting ready for General Conference and the investigators understand the importance to listen to the voice of a living prophet.
Hope that everyone at home is well. Looking forward to hearing back from all of you next week.

Elder Smith Mar 8 2010

Hey family,

How is everyone doing? i hope that all is well at home. another great week here in Ecuador. this weekend we had two baptism and put four baptism dates. the work is progressing a lot in Quevedo. the bad part about all that is that have been called to serve in another sector. They called us last night at about 10 oclock and told us that we had to be at the bus station at 5 in the morning to travel to Guayaquil. My new sector is a suburb out side of Guayaquil called Duran. My new companion is from Michigan, a gringo, the first time since my trainer. we were in the zone about 3 changes ago so we are looking forward to being able to work together.
Guayaquil is even hotter than Quevedo!! we are looking forward to having a lot of success this change. Enduring to the end, using all of my time with wisdom to complete the work that i have come here to do.
looking forward to hearing back from all of you next week. Paz a vosotros. haha

Elder Smith 1 Mar 2010

Hello family,
How is everyone doing at home? Here in Ecuador we are doing well. Doing all that we can to stay dry and to keeping helping the people come unto the Lord and receive the restored gospel in their lives. This week we had another Noche Blanca, it was a really good turn out, 12 people were baptized. We are hoping ot have another baptism service this Saturday with four people from upr ward that will be baptized. My companion and I get along really well and that helps a lot with being able to teach by the spirit. We hope to be able to have one more change together here in Quevedo.
I hope that all is well at home. Keep the people that we are teaching in your prayers so that they be receptive to our message. I love and miss you all and im looking forward to hearing back from all you. And if I don’t hear from you, seeing all of you soon.
