A Record of Elder Eastman's Missionary Service in the Quito Ecuador Mission

A Record of Elder Eastman's Missionary Service in the Quito Ecuador Mission

Monday, January 26, 2015



Yep it sure did happen!  It was pretty sweet.  Not very many people showed up to the service but it was still really nice.  So kinda funny story.  The baptism was in the morning and before the baptism we went of to the bishops house to get the clothes.  He gave us the biggest ones he had and also that the stake had but they were still not big enough.  So that made us worried a bit.  Then we called the zone leaders and luckily they had something bigger.  So they had to rush over to our church building and give them to us.  That was a bit stressfull.  But we got them in time and they fit.  So everything worked out just fine.  It was a really nice experience.  At the end Hna. Teresa bore her testimony and it was super awesome.  She even cried.  So i think she is going to be a wonderful member.  And then this sunday she got the gift of the Holy Ghost.  That was nice too.  

Well for my shoes i just tried to fill up the crack with some liquid silicone stuff.  I think that should work at least temporarily.  No theyre not my favorite.  I like the eccos better.  And the other shoes are doing wonderfully.  I rotate wearing each pair pretty evenly too.  
Yes I think i have read most of those letters.  They are all very nice.  And no i havnt gotten the pens yet.  Also i finaly sent a letter to you guys.  Sorry it has taken so long.  

A massive worm we found the other day.

Hola mi Padre!
Estaba enfermo también.  Pero hoy día estoy un poco mejor.  
I really really like that talk by Elder Holland.  We listen to it all the time.  
I'm definitely glad that im on a mission too.  It's been tough for sure but i know it's worth it.  
Yesterday i was listening to the talk Lord, is it I? and a sertain part really stuck out to me this time.  A part where Elder Uchtdorf talks a bit about the scritpure that says, where your treasures are, there too will your heart be also.  Or something like that.  And he says "is your heart set on the convenient things of this world, or is it focused on the teachings of the diligent Jesus Christ?" And i thought that i should probably stop worrying or thinking so much about the nice things of this world and focus my mind more on the work that we are doing here.  Becuase when i start thinking about the things i used to have and the things i dont have anymore the mission gets a bit harder.  But when i think of the good things i get to do now and the help and blessings we get to give people the mission gets a bit easier.  So i guess in order to have a great mission experience your heart needs to be really into it.  And in order to have that you need to stop focusing on the convenient things of this world.  So i'm going to start really trying to do that.  
Love you too!
Elder Eastman
