On July 1 we held a mission conference to celebrate the first anniversary of the new Ecuador Guayaquil West Mission. All of our missionaries came in from outside of Guayaquil the evening before and stayed in the temple housing apartments. We started the next morning by taking a mission picture and then we began our mission conference, including several talks, a testimony meeting, a slideshow with 800 pictures from the first year, and part of video, "The Book of Mormon: How Rare a Possession" because Pres. Dennis has focused greatly on the Book of Mormon this past year. Afterwards we had a very delicious lunch and then each zone presented the skits or musical numbers they had prepared. We finished with closing remarks and our mission hymn in the chapel. Then the zones outside of Guayaquil attended the temple that evening and the zones in Guayaquil attended the following week. It was a wonderful conference and has been a wonderful first year. We have the best missionaries in the world!! Ayudarles a Perseverar Hasta el Fin!!
