Hola mi familia!
Wow that is a crazy week. That is horrible about Olivia. It sounds like she is living in a foreign country not me. This week has been a pretty great week. I was lucky to receive a stack of 13 letters this week. Wow, we had a change in Zone Leaders so they couldn´t go to the office for a little while but when they did I had a mountain of letters. This was great. Tell the activity day girls thank you for their great letters. It was awesome to get them.
Unfortunately we did not have a baptism this week because of coffee but it is all good because we are going to have them this week. I do have many opurtunites to see other missionaries because our zone is only our stake and we have at least to meetings with the zone every week. We have 20 missionaries in the zone. I am not sure how it will work on Mothers Day. We may only get to talk on the phone because it is a normal day to work. You guys definately should take Andy to Hectors. Eat some great churros for me. Presidente has not mentioned anything about the rule change so I don´t really know. Dad thank you so much for those scriptures I will definately be reading those. My worries have definately lessened here in the mission. I have read my patriarchal blessing and as the spritual experiences have increased my worries have subsided. We had a great spiritual experience just yesterday. The family I told you guys about last week, the Mom went to church yesterday. She did not like Church very much she said. So we were thinking how we could strengthen her testimony or make her feel the spirit. So we had one of the young men with us and we went to her house and watched the Joseph Smith movie with her. I paused it after Joseph was tarred and feathered and bore testimony. We then continued the movie. After the movie she seemed normal. We asked her how she like the movie and she said it was bonita, normal. Then all three of us bore testimony of Joseph Smith and this church and Eternal families and then it just broke. She started to cry being overcome with the spirit. It was awesome. The spirit was so strong there. The young man who was with us, we went to his house to eat dinner with his family. He told his mom about the experience. I am so glad we were able to have those experiences with him. He was so excited and more excited for a mission. This experiences are what make the mission awesome. We also have transfers tonight so I don´t know where my next email will be coming from but it will all work out.
Dad, thanks so much for the update on the mission presidents. They are going to divide the three mission here in Guayaquil. I could actually end up in any of the three. It just depends. It will all work out though. Both of the presidents look awesome. President Montalti is a pretty great mission president. He is pretty strict but that is good because it brings more people into the gospel. Anyways, thank you guys so much for you emails. I love them. I love you guys all so much and miss you greatly.
One scripture or chapter to study this week is Mosiah 2. It is an awesome chapter.
I love you all.
Love, Elder Benjamin Berg Duzett
