Welcome to this new blog Josh in Ecuador! I'm Nikki (Josh's sister), and I have started this blog to update anyone interested about Josh (AKA Elder Thomas) as he serves his two year mission in Quito, Ecuador for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
So far, Josh has spent 3 weeks in the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah and he just got into the Missionary Training Center that's in Lima, Peru on July 3rd. We (my family and I) have absolutely loved getting emails and letters from Josh each week--he's doing so well! We even got to talk to him on the phone--twice--on the day that he flew to Lima. We didn't get to talk for very long, and at one point his voice sounded like a robot shutting down, but it was wonderful to hear his voice which we've missed so much. Josh is really doing well, and is working hard to learn everything he can in order to be the best missionary that he can. Anyways, I'll be posting some snippets from each of Josh's letters soon!
