Christmas Week

Monday, December 29, 2014

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!

Love y'all,
Hna Lyman

The Guillem family spoiled me.  It was also the birthday of their daughter Julia so we celebrated together.

Ice cream cake from Hermana Nancy and Isabel.  It was so good.  This was me biting the cake before they shoved my face in it.

Lots of Cooking!

Monday, October 13, 2014

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!

Sister Conference and General Conference!

Monday, October 6, 2014

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!  

No Cambios!!!!

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 week! 

Say your prayers
Read your scriptures
Go to church
Have family Home Evenings
Attend the temple regularly
