July 17

Hey family dear, 

This week was alright. About almost everything we tried to do failed. BUT My voice this week is in english so that is fun. 

we are hoping to have 2 baptisms this week, one on Friday, and the other on sunday. They should both be really exciting. To tell you a little about it here's an overview. 

Nicol- She should be baptized on friday afternoon, if all works out okay. She is the daughter to a less active single mother whose son just ran away from home with is girlfriend. The mom is slowly returning to activity and is very excited to see her daughter, aged 17, enter the waters of baptism, get married in august, then be sealed in the temple next year. It has been a very long process with her and her family, but we're almost there. Just a little more work, and she will be very blessed. 

Jader- Jader is 10 years old, son of a single, recently divirced, mother-member and brother to another 15 year old member. The missionaries have been trying to baptise him for the last 2 years in Columbia, but now he's coming to live with his mom in Ecuador. He asked to be baptized upon his arrival here. 

Other than that, we have transfers at the end of the week. I don't feel I'll b getting a transfer, but who knows except God. 

We are super tired right now after a lot of work and a lot of illness but were still moving forward. 

That's all I've got for this week, hopefully pictures of baptisms next week! 
-Elder Beech

Brandon got a call from a ward member during the week.  They had been cleaning out some boxes and found this picture of another Elder Beech from 25 years ago with a little note that he left them.  That Elder Beech is Brandon's Uncle Bryce.  What a treasure for our family.  (Now Kevin needs to ask Bryce who maybe has his old mission scriptures. Maybe Brandon can go find those too. LOL)
