WEEK 25: 5-1/2 MONTHS

Hey Mom! Thats so good the missionaries came over and taught dad lesson 1 for the 100th time! You need to tell them to talk about lesson 2, the Plan of Salvation. Dad probably knows more about Joseph Smith and the First Vision than some members. He needs to get baptized, tell the sister missionaries to send over some elders who will be more stern and serious with Dad. I went to shady creek with glen edwards elementary, or maybe it was 6th graders there, I cant remember.

This week was way good Angel Veliz was baptized this Saturday! He is 13 years old and was a reference from the 2nd counselor in the bishopbric, Bro. Bernita. Angel is best friends with one of his sons. And it has been so great teaching him. I remember the first day I arrived here and then the day of his baptism and the difference was astounding. He has grown so much in his testimony and conviction of the gospel. The baptismal service was great. Saturday night it was pouring, and we have to walk about 25 minutes to the chapel in the rain so that was exciting as well. We took a lot of good pictures for you guys.

Hermano Luis is doing very well, and yes we are teaching his wife. She has more doubts and is progressing more slowly. She is 82 years old and has been Catholic her life so it will take more time but we are working with her! She has desires but does not want to commit to baptism date yet. Its tough because this Gospel has changed Hermano Luis. He shared his testimony with us and it is so powerful. And that he wants so much that his wife will be baptised so they can go to the temple and be sealed with their kids for time and all eternity. 

Yes we sleep with the mosquito nets every night because its always so hot so the windows are open and we have fans. The mosquitos here carry some nasty illnesses. For an address to look it up in google would be 25 de Julio, Guayaquil, Guayas, Ecuador.

A lot of the cybers here are pretty sketchy so Im having problems uploading the photos. Yeah theyre not going through so Ill have to get them sent over next week! Sorry Mom! Ill have a lot to send this next week.

Love you!

Elder Solari
