Elder Ruiz' we presume?

Elder Woolf's mom sent this picture of her son, with Landon, and if I had to guess, that would be Elder Ruiz in the middle. Our sons became very close with Elder Ruiz. He was very friendly, and something just "clicked" and they became fast friends. He is from Iquitos, Peru, and is the only member in his family. It is a really sad situation. His dad threw him out of the house because he wanted to serve a mission. He cleaned the church, and they let him stay there. He slept there for about 6 months. He has been a member for a year. He is great missionary. He is excited to teach and serve. Elder's Woolf and Rich got his address in Iquitos, and told him they would try their best to teach his family. He told them he doesn’t know where he is going to live after his mission, because of his dad. "It’s a sad story but he has amazing faith. He knows this is where he is supposed to be."
