Erick Villacres Varas

6 months of mission! And what a great week!

It's such a joy to testify of the things you know to be true. Jesus Christ is the answer. He has given me more than I could ever give back to Him. I could spend my entire life in the mission testifying and never repay my debt. This week was 6 months of mission, and what a short 6 months it has been.

Elder Varas is really fun. When you stick with a companion for 2 transfers like we have (3 months now) you have the opportunity to really become friends, and refine the way that you teach together. We know each other so well that we know exactly what jokes will make each other laugh, and we have a lot of fun. We are also teaching better and better. The thing I love about Elder Varas is that he prioritizes teaching by the Spirit and knowing the person´s needs because he loves people. We did a lot of contacting (knocking doors aka clapping outside peoples gates) and met some really great families this week! We also visited the cathedral, which is a really cool conical shape! We gave an awesome training together for the zone about how to ask great questions when teaching to really know how much people are understanding to help them progress. We had a great practice with asking good questions. We made cinnamon rolls to take to people too!

I love you all, family and friends, and I love this work! Jesus Christ is indeed the Savior of the world!
-Elder Wells
