Week #73 - Coca, Ecuador - December 21, 2015

Dear Family and Friends,

¡Feliz Navidad a todos! Christmas time is here!

Well, the holidays are a bit different here. First of all, it doesn't feel at all like Christmas because it's very hot. I'm pretty use to it now because I was in Esmeraldas for 3 transfers where it was also very hot, and now on my second transfer here in Coca. But this week, it has been a lot more mild. Before changes last week, it was super hot but this week has been nice.

My companion Elder Jeffery was in Tulcán before he came here, which was the coldest part of the mission. So he has been trying to get used to the hot weather now. Hahaha! We get along really well. He is super cool and really funny. He´s the craziest guy I have met on the mission so far! He is from some part of Utah I have never heard of.

Because of the holidays coming up soon, the missionary work here is getting harder because our investigators and many of the people we teach are traveling, but even so, we were still able to get 6 of our investigators to church on Sunday. And we are still continuing to work on getting Christian and Jennifer married so they can get baptized. It looks like it will be delayed even further because so many places are closed for the holidays. Actually, many of our investigators arent' married, so it going to be a problem for a while as we are teaching these people. Although when I was proselyting with Elder Perez, we found a lot of people willing to listen to our message and have a lot of potential for the future. They include:
Familia Vaca-Sánchez
Familia Rivadeneira-Salinas
Alejandro Chinkim
Familia Medina-loor

I would be grateful if you could please keep these people/families in your prayers so that they can accept the invitations we give them. Have a wonderful Christmas and remember: Ha nacido un Salvador.
