This blog is for Trissa Lyman, who has decided to give up 18 months to serve the Lord. She is serving a health mission in the Ecuador Guayaquil West mission. "Yea, verily, verily, I say unto you, that the field is white already to harvest; wherefore, thrust in your sickles, and reap with all your might, mind, and strength." Doctrine & Covenants 33:7
Christmas was fun we had Christmas lunch in the mission home with President and Hermana Dennis and the office elders. We also were allowed to watch a Disney movie so we watched Frozen which was a super cute movie. We slept which I think was my first nap EVER on the mission and in 17 months and read the BOM. It was nice but also made me miss home especially after Skyping with y'all. It was so awesome to get to talk to everyone. I cant believe how big Bruce and Clark are!! Super cute and talkative. I am excited to see everyone in February! Sarah, the mission president´s daughter is on vacation from school right now so she wanted to do a mini-mission for a few days with us which was fun. She is 16 years old and super animated and smart. She has such a great testimony and our investigatores loved her! She went back home today so we are a little sad. This transfer is going to be 7 weeks due to the holidays which means my last transfer will only be 5 weeks. That's really going to make the time fly by. Two of the families that I baptized with my trainer, Hna. Williams, will be getting sealed this upcoming week so I am hoping to be able to attend! It is such a wonderful blessing and I am super happy for them!

We made blondies today! They were so GOOD!!! We also ate Tongas in the house of Lizardo, our convert. It is rice
and chicken with a peanut butter sauce that they wrap in banana leaves
and then cook in a fire. We will try this when y'all come to pick me up!
Photos from the Sisters Conference October 1st! In the bus to Guayaquil at 6 AM! With Hermana Saucedo my compañera from 4 transfers ago!
With Hermana Quist, Hermana Saucedo and Hermana Vera. Nurses! With Hermana Blas! She picked me up from the office on my first day in Ecuador.
The Guillem Family!
We used the Gel Pens to take notes during the Conference! It was perfect for Julia! Who knew all you needed was gel pens to get a 15 year old to pay attention to conference! Thanks for the gift mom, I'm addicted to them!
Transfers happened last night
and guess what......... I DIDN'T have cambios! YAY! I have at least 6 more
weeks in Portoviejo. A lot happened this week we had the sisters
conference and traveled to Guayaquil which is always fun but tiresome. We also had general conference this weekend so we were busy making
invitations and inviting everybody. The conference was PERFECT for our
investigador, Mariana. She practices a spiritual practice called Tao
which originated in China. She believes in the book of Mormon and bible
but also in other books that have been written by other religions etc. She also believes in reincarnation. She is an engineer and is a
reference from my last convert, Lizardo. She is awesome, prayers for
her please. Don't have any more time left but hope everyone has a great
