Hey mom!! I am glad you got rid of that tree!! Sounds a little dangerous! Did Jacob like his birthday? So it sounds really cold there and here it is not cold at all. Actually it is the hottest time of the year. From now until about March I guess it rains a lot and is super hot. People don't like it because it is so hot... I'm not sure what I would pick the super hot or the cold but it really is not too hot here. I guess there are other parts of Ecuador like the jungle that are a lot hotter! My package was only a little over weight so i guess it only cost 5 dollars and they are sending it here to Esmeraldas.Elder Aliaga is very chill! He is an awesome guy really! Haha he makes me laugh! He is just so chill and goes with the flow! I don't think we could have an argument if I wanted one! He is really young though. Only eighteen years old and he has only been a member of the church for about a year and a half now so he is not only young in age and maturity but also young in the church! Haha this makes the teaching interesting! He has actually only been in Ecuador for 6 more weeks than me! And our lessons are not quite the same as they were with old Elder Bautista! I guess I never really realized how good of a teacher Elder Bautista was! Elder Aliaga is good, he is just young and inexperienced as well as me haha but I cant really go through a whole lesson in full detail because my spanish is not that good yet and my companion forgets to really asks questions some times and so a veces our lessons are super short! haha so we have a lot of extra time but we are going to be working on our teaching skills and I hope it gets better!
This is Elder Gebs. He is from Evanston:
