Good week here in the southern hemisphere. This week improved because now Elder Salmon knows almost all of the investigators, members, and area, so we can work more effectively. On Wednesday we had a multi zone conference with the President. He sent out an email about 4 weeks ago and warned everyone that a companionship would be selected on that day to do a 5 minute practice teaching the atonement to an ¨investigator¨ that we would meet that day. So everyone has been studying and focusing on the atonement to prepare. Needless to say, Elder Salmon and I were selected on the spot to participate in the practice and teach in front of about 60 other missionaries. It was a great learning experience and I feel good knowing the president picked us. We spent the whole morning at the conference studying and discussing the atonement; something that we will never be able to fully comprehend but is so powerful when you use it according to peoples needs.

On Thursday Elder Sims hit one year, and it is a tradition in Ecuador and Peru that whenever there is a birthday or accomplishment like this, you crack an egg on the person’s head or throw flour at them. So that’s what we did. I’m sending the picture of the aftermath when Elder Sims charged us with his head and rubbed egg on all of us. Quite hilarious to watch someone smack an egg on someone’s head. In other news, we’ve got a baptismal date for next Sunday for the grandma of Luis and Kiara. I think that does it for this week. Love you fam. Que Dios les bendiga en todo lo que pase en sus vidas. Elder Farmer
