July 27, 2015 - Training Week

It has been another week of trainings. We started the week with President, the wife of Pdte, the assistents, and the leaders of the 2 zones in the coast in a small leaders meeting. Then on wednesday we had our zone conference with everyone in the coast and that was a really special meeting. We did some practices where the only objective was to feel the spirit, then talk about how we felt the spirit and why we did and what happened to invite the spirit. It was super neat to talk just about the spirit and how it works. It helped me remember the importance of the spirit in all that we do, especially in the lessons, instead of just teaching to teach.

Other bit of good news. We are going to move! We found a house that is much nicer than the one that we are in right now, and this week we are going to move. I am most looking forward to having quiet, peaceful study sessions. :) haha

And to finish the week off, I came to Quito with an elder in my zone that got an infection in his foot from a bite that he had from a bug, I think. And we are currently still in Quito. So it has been a weekend of some pretty good study sessions for me haha. 

Being in the coast has made me realize how valuable our time really is. We have to go home an hour early than normal for the safety, and it just makes our day seem super short. So I have been learning and practicing a lot how to make the most of every moment of the day. I have loved everything about the coast. Even the hardest moments. I have learned to see the good in everyone and everything, especially the moments that seem like there can be no good. The Lord has greatly blessed me with this opportunity to serve a mission and to represent Him in this time to serve the people and other missionaries. 

Thank you all for your support and prayers.

Love,  Elder Parker
