Hola Familia! Welcome to Ecuador , the best mission in the world! Seriously. So cool here. Not literally, it really could not be hotter. Ah so much to say but so little time because, yes, I am one of the few lucky missionaries that still only has an hour to write. So dang it.
Dear Brother and Sister Brimley:
It was a very special experience to personally greet your daughter, Sister Brimley, at the airport upon her arrival in Guayaquil. We were impressed by her great spirit and desire to serve. We are grateful and humbled to have her serving here with us.
From the airport we took her and the other missionaries downtown to the Guayaquil Temple for a picture. We then went to a stake center to meet the office staff and take care of some paperwork, and orientation. We enjoyed a great Ecuadorian dinner after which it was my privilege to interview your daughter as well as the other arriving missionaries. What a nice experience it was to get to know your daughter and feel her outstanding missionary spirit!
Later in the day, they were assigned companions for their first assignment. The next morning they traveled to their new area. Your daughter was assigned to the Machala Zone with Sister Nuñez as her companion. The address for the mission office is Ecuador Guayaquil South Mission, Casilla 09-04-566, Guayaquil, Guayas, Ecuador. If, in case of emergency, you need to contact your daughter, please call the mission office at 593-04-228-2454.
Your help in encouraging her in your letters to continue to serve faithfully, being completely obedient throughout her mission will be greatly appreciated. We know that she and the Ecuador Guayaquil South Mission will be in your prayers. We also know that the coming months will bring many blessings into your lives by your daughter´s faithful service and the sacrifice you are making for her to serve the Lord.
Thank you very much for having prepared your daughter to withstand the rigors of missionary life and to now be serving with us.
May God bless you for your consecration towards furthering the Lord´s work. We send our love and appreciation.
Ecuador Guayaquil South Mission
