Well...

Well, transfers came and went! I was sure I was gonna be transfered but (lucky me) I wasnt. Im still in Esperanza with Sister Velez. 

This week went by so fast, we went to guayaquil for two conferences (one with a couple of zones, and another just for Sisters) and we got to do a session in the temple! So we didnt have much time to work, but the conferences were really cool.

It looks like you guys are enjoying summer. It makes me laugh that you guys think you are having hot weather. USTEDES NO CONOCEN EL SOL! Haha, its still really hot here (surprise, I know) but im becoming a big baby, because if im in the shade for too long and there is a little breeze I get goosebumps. Needless to say when I come home I am going to die.

This week just flew by, I feel like I never have time for anything its always just go go go go! haha

The other day when we were at the beach it was super funny because we are so used to walking like "missionaries" or in other words, relly fast that we were trying to enjy a nice walk by the beach and we finished in like 2 seconds haha... oops!

All is well in ecuador, everyday we see miracles. Sometimes I forget that I live in ecuador. Until I walk into a house and there is a goat in the living room. Ive been away from home for so long that everything before just seems like a dream. Like I have been a missionary my whole life and that all the expiriences that I had before are just clips from a movie that I saw a really long time ago. Its a really weird feeling... haha I dont know how to explain it! 

I love you all so much.
You are real right? Not just a dream? haha

Love, Sister Miller

P.S...... I just really love rice.
I ate something really weird the other day... its called Bollo de pescado. LOOK IT UP

One year later... What the heck??

Well, I have blisters again. Big ones too! I dont know how I am still getting blisters.. one year later and I still got them. Dont worry I was super cruel and took pictures haha

This week was super awesome! We had so much success and we had people in church aswell! Which is super good because it was stake conference and two general authorities came. Elder Calderon (de ecuador) and ELder Waddell (de the USA) . AND my mission president and his wife. When we arrived he told us "Hey sisters, how are you doing. Did you bring anyone??" and we just about had a heart attack, but luckily we had three people come that day so he went and introduced himself! It was weird! haha, but awesome. Also, I decided that gringos are just really weird. I am so used to seeing latinos that when I see gringos it kind of weirds me out haha THEY ARE SO TALL. AND SO WHITE! haha

Last Pday we went to the beach and collected sea shells. It was so much fun! We were gonna just grab ike 10 each... but we ended up bringing home about 100 each... hahaha so right now in the house we have about 200 sea shells. Somos locas yo lo se! 

Today we are gonna go back to the beach to have a picnic :) Im super excited. My companion is awesome and we get along really good. Sometimes we drive eachother a little nuts I think, but thats normal when you have to be with one person for 24 hours each day haha

Well, Ive already been with her one cambio (6 weeks) and the next transfers will be here next monday- I really dont want to leave here! I hope that I dont have cambios! I love my sector and my companion!

AND GUESS WHAT! IM GOING TO THE TEMPLE THIS MI√ČRCOLES! WOHOOOOOOOO! I am one happy missionary.

I love you all! Have a good week!

This week we found lots of investigators... so now for this new week we will be inviting quite a few people to baptism! Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers! 

Love, Sister Me-yer (thats how they say my name here haha) or Mee-ler





MY HUMPDAY CAMEL!
ONE YEAR MARK!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

One Year!!!!!



This week I have officially been a missionary for a year! WHAT?! Where did all the time go?? Its actually really super duper terrifying to think I will be going home in 6 months. I feel like everything that happened before my mission was just a dream.... and now its super bitter sweet. 

This week we went to Guayaquil to have a conference. It was weird being back in the city. I felt like a caveman that had been trapped in the ice for millions of years and then when everything unthaws I dont know what technology is ... haha or traffic! lol just kidding, its not THAT bad, but it was pretty weird.

We have found some really good people here in our sector so we have been working with them to see if anyone is going to progress. POR FIN WE HAD PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH! It made me SO happy.... our hard work is finally paying off! lol 

My companion is good, she talks quite a bit, and just about herself our her life and stuff like that.. it gets really boring but I try my hardest to pay attention to what she says, jaja but sometimes im just so sleepy! 

I am trying my best to make every day count... because I know that six months is just gonna fly by. I love you all so much! I pray for you all everyday!.... Are you doing your family home evenings??? haha dont make me come over there!

love, Sister Miller
