Routines and Rain

Hi Everyone!! 

OK so to be honest nothing has changed at the MTC here in Mexico. Everyday is almost the exact same!! Studying Spanish and lessons and the gospel! I´m really loving it actually! 

Probably the best thing that has happened is that my district has really grown closer together! We literally spend every day together and its a tone of fun!! The best thing however from the last week is that everyday at around 5:00 P.M. is it starts raining. I did not expect that from Mexico!! It´s been really nice enjoying the rain and the nice cool weather!! 

I think my favorite thing is when Hermana Siddoway and I went for a run in the rain. It was great and made running actually a little bit enjoyable!! I´m super excited for general conference and can´t wait to write again next week!!

My First Companion

Hi Everyone!!

This is my first of many days here on my mission. I have loved every minute of it so far!! Learning how to be a missionary has been so great!! And just in a week and a half here at the CCM, my Spanish has improved so much!!

I have the best companion ever, her name is Hermana Siddoway and we work really well together!! We have already taught our first  five lesson to an investigator all in Spanish!! We got through it alive and OK and just a little bit more excited to go teach people in our missions!!

She is going to a mission in Chile and could not be more excited!! The thing that we both agreed that we missed the most are nap time. No where in our schedule have the let us take 30 mins to recover for GYM time of at least 5 hours of Spanish!! However, we are getting better and used to the busy class schedules!! 

Our biggest achievement this week would have to be running a mile twice this week at 7000 ft elevation, well its at least my biggest achievement anyways. Probably the best achievement was memorizing four scriptures and 280 words in Spanish!! That is something that I am really proud of actually, it was a lot of long hard work!! 

Well that is pretty much it for my first week and a half here in Mexico!! Love you all!!

Here we go!

Hello everyone! My name is Libby White, and I have been called on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to serve the people in Ecuador. Specifically, I'll be in the Quito area.

Over the next 18 months I'll be living in a variety of different environments as I experience the different culture of the people of Ecuador. More importantly, I will spend the next year and a half increasing my love for the people of Ecuador as I serve and teach them the gospel.

Each week for the next 18 months I will be writing home each week and would love to share my experiences with all of you. I can't wait to tell you all about my adventures in Ecuador!
