Week 6 -Arrival Pictures and Letter from Mission President Richardson

Here are some pictures of Alex during her first few days at the Mission Home in Quito.  Her new companion is Sister Madrid from Honduras. 

Dear Powley Family,
We wanted to let you know that we are delighted to have met and spent the last three days with Hermana Powley.  She is already speaking Spanish, and we were delighted to have her serenade us at our welcome dinner with her beautiful piano playing and singing as we took pictures with the missionaries.  She is a sweetheart and will undoubtedly be a fabulous missionary.  We assure you that we will do everything possible to help her have a positive experience here. 
The newly formed Ecuador Quito North Mission experiences a high number of baptisms, and success in reactivation. Our boundaries include coast, jungle, a native Indian area, as well as the highly populated city of Quito so our missionaries enjoy a wide range of experiences.
The theme of our mission is translated “The Center of the World; Centered on Christ,” and we have a wonderful group of 185 missionaries which will be growing to approximately 225 in the next few months.  She is currently serving with Hermana Madrid, one of our amazing sister trainer leaders from Honduras, here in Quito.   
We know you’re already planning on it, but we want to remind you to write your Sister Powley a weekly letter.  Her preparation day will be on Mondays.
