27 July 2015 Letter

Weekly Letter - 27 Julio - 6 Months!!!!

Well this computer has some serious virus goin on up in here so there is no way I am going to send or download fotos.  But I can still write!!!

Ok so here is the update.  Ñaña is the best.  This area is massive and we walk a ton.  That is the only down-side.  My comp is amazing.  He is district leader and is super humble.  His name is Elder Cornejo from Babahoyo, Ecuador.  He is super musically talented and really humble.  He is a great leader because he leads by example.  I can't ask for much more in a companion.  The area is super awesome too.  We have a super tiny ward compared with my last area but the members are here to do work!  They all know their role in missionary work.  The bishop is a stud and makes sure everyone is doing their job.  They just changed all the presidencies of all the organizations in the ward, so we will see what will happen.  Hopefully everything we still turn out well.

We have a good amount of investigators and three with a baptismal date.  One family we are working with is the Cajavilca family.  They live like 20 minutes away from our main proselyting area so it's fun to get there!  They are all investigators.  They have two daughters.  Daniela, who is 12 will be baptized this Saturday after about 2 months of investigating the church.  The mom, Norma will be getting married to her boyfriend this week as well so they can be baptized in August some time.  The other daughter, Alicia, is still missing something but is super close to baptism.  We think the baptism of her sister will really help her make a decision, though so we are super excited for this weekend.  They are a great family and they have a great story too.  One day 2 months ago Elder Cornejo and the last Elder that was here were walking in the street and went to buy soda in the corner store when a woman approached them and told them she wanted to be baptized into our church and be a member because she liked our religion.  She had never been taught by missionaries antes (before) but was super prepared and ready for the Gospel.  This woman was Norma, the mom of the Cajavilca family.  Luckily, I am here now and am honored to be able to help them enter the waters of baptism.

We are also working with another family named the Reynaldo family.  They live on the very top of this giant hill we have in the area near Huascata.  The parents aren't members nor are they married but three of their kids are members.  They have three more that aren't members and two of them, Arez (8) and Suja(10) have a baptismal date for the 15 of August and it is fairly concrete.  Their parents have already signed the permission slips and we are excited for their progression.  They are a beautiful family and I love visiting them even though is is seriously impossible to hike that hill.

I have seen the blessings of working hard and will continue to work hard till the day I die.  'Cause after we resurrect we can work perfectly hard without sweating at all!

Elder Wilcox
