New Changes!

Hey mom!

Well I did get changed this last week! My new companion is named Elder Vera! He is from Chili! He is pretty cool! He is really good with people! Just his personality and all. He is really smart too and can teach super well! I am going to be able to learn a lot from him so I am excited for that. I am in Calderon! It is in Northern Quito! I love it here because the climate is nice and cool! No more hot and sweaty esmeraldas! Although I did like the ocean...  It is pretty awesome here the people are super super nice and they give us a lot of food! I don't know what I am going to do! Things are good! The time is flying by! I have been on my mission for almost 6 months! Crazy! I love it though! 
Sounds like every one is doing pretty good! That is awesome! I hope Ammon kicks butt at state! Im sure he will.  I am excited for him! Shalee always makes me smile! She is awesome! And yes you need to get on the blog! I am excited to see it when I get back home! 
Hmm well last week when I was in Quito, Elder Aliaga and I stopped by an investigators house to invite him to church.  It was late and we knocked on the door and nothing for a few seconds then after a while we heard someone sobbing on the other side of the door! We had no idea what to do! After a few seconds I knocked on the door again and our investigator Alex answered and he was a mess! Crying like a baby! Well i sat him down and tried to talk to him.... it did not take long to find out he was drinking before.  He started talking to me in english and well I tried to help him the best that I could! He told me that his wife is always leaving him and he feels so lonely all the time and that is why he drinks to try and get rid of the loneliness.  I'm not sure if it was true or if it was just the alcohol talking but anyways I gave him some good advice and i'm not sure how much he really took in in his state but I really feel like I have been a tool in the Lord's hands.  It makes me sad that I had to leave the next day.  I don't know if I will ever know what will happen with him or any of the other people in regocijo! Kinda sad! I am super glad to get to meet some new people though! 
Love you guys!
