Khristian sent this letter & pictures late Monday night before he left for the airport to fly to Ecuador. I've been waiting to post to see if we would hear from him once he got there, we finally got a letter from his Mission President a few minutes ago. He arrived in his new area today. He is in the La Pradera Zone and his companion is Elder Herrera. We can't wait to hear more next week!
Well I am now done here at the CCM! We leave in 2 and a 1/2 hours to go to the Airport. We fly out at 2:30 in the morning! We go to Columbia and then have a two hour layover and then go to Ecuador! It will be awesome! We have had an awesome week here, but it has also been super hard because I feel so overwhelmed with all the stuff I still need to get done before I go to Ecuador.
My spanish is getting better and better each week. It will be a real adventure once I get to Ecuador! We have 2 new Spanish Elders again in our dorms and they are awesome to us. One is from Mexico and the other is from El Salvador. They are really cool and we talk with them from 9:30 to 10:30 every night. It has helped my spanish out a lot. It's great to be able to talk to them with words that do not relate to the church. I feel like I am going to get to Ecuador and only know words relating to the Gospel, so it will be hard to communicate anything outside of that.
This week we got our pictures taken, for the farewell video we have every Sunday. It was pretty sweet to see us up there after watching 5 weeks worth of others going out. We were the big guys on campus here and it was pretty sweet to know that we had been here the longest. Everyone in our branch is going to miss us because we were the favorites with everyone. We also got a new Branch President this last week. He is a very cool guy and it is too bad that we got him only for our last week. Today we had to say goodbye to our 2 teachers Hermano Vargas and Hermano Polo, it was sad to say goodbye to them, but they know that the best is yet to come.
Well other than that this week was pretty ordinary! I leave tonight to go and can´t wait! It is time to start the real phase of missionary work! Everything is the real deal now! Everyone have an awesome week this week and I will hear from you guys next week!
Love, Elder Sorensen
