Hey Mom,

Things have been great. I get along really well with my companion, which is always good. The work is always a little bit smoother when you have a good companion. We have been working really hard these weeks and we have taught a lot of new people. The ward I am in is really good. We have a lot of good members. This week we did divisions with one of the companionships in the zone. I was with Elder Contreras. We had a fun day together. He is from Bolivia.

There are a few companionships in the zone that are struggling, so Wednesday we went to one of their sectors to contact and help them find new people for a couple of hours. Thursday we did the same thing in a different sector with other missionaries. So we weren't able to work a ton in our sector this week but we still had success. We have been teaching the G family. They have come to church a few times now. They will hopefully get baptized during the first of August. The zone has been improving over the last few weeks.

I haven't been eating very good these last few weeks. And we've only gone running three times. We set a goal today to do better. I was doing really good until I came to Ambato. I am coming to the end of the Book of Mormon again. I have also been studying the New Testament. I will probably finish that again soon. I took up reading Jesus the Christ again and I am about to finish all the conference talks from April again. I was re-studying them. So I've basically been studying a little bit of everything. Sometimes it is hard to organize my studies especially since we study mostly for our investigators.

How's the family? So far it seems like it's been a pretty busy summer. Those pictures made me miss the mountains. I'm sure it's beautiful this time of year. My companion and I were talking the other day about what life will be like after the mission. I realized I have so many decisions to make before I go home and a lot of planning to do but no idea when I will be able to do it. My companion finishes pretty soon so that's how we got on to that subject.

Also looking at all the conference talks and what is happening in the US now is cool. Obviously they were inspired, recently two big topics have been the family and religious freedom. The second coming draws closer!! It will be extremely important to follow the prophet in these days which has also been a big topic, mostly in the October conference. So I have been thinking a little about that lately. Other than that, there is not a ton of things to report. I hope you liked the pictures I will try to take more. Send more to me as well.

Love and miss you! Have a great week!
