Still in the Mountains!
Hola Familia, como están todos, espero que todos estén muy muy bien. We had a pretty great week this week. We were able to have a baptism on Friday. Unfortunately I could not attend because I was doing 3 baptismal interviews in Cañar. But the baptism went really well. We also were able to activate the mom on the young man that got baptized. I think that she even has a calling now. We are pretty excited for that. We were also able to bring 7 people to church but unfortunately those 7 do not want to progress. We have not heard anything about changes so far and so I don´t think we will be changed. Which is actually good. I just want to explode this ward with lots of great families, we just need to find them. I know they are here we just have to find them. The Stake Conference was pretty good. The Temple President spoke and President Torres gave a great great talk! Then we heard from Elder Calderon a Seventy from Colombia. It was pretty great. This stake is huge. They need to devide it. There are 2 missionaries in our stake at home, here in this stake of Cuenca there are like 40 missionaries and more coming, pretty crazy. Thanks for helping out the sisters in our Stake. Here we don´t eat arepas, quiero pero no hay!!!! Here we eat arroz y pollo with mote which is corn that is big and they put it in the soup. It is pretty good. Well I hope that all is well with you guys. We are going to have a great week this week I just know it. I know we are going to find some great, great families. I love you all and I hope that you all have a great week. Good luck with school!!!!! Mom good luck with you new job. I hope all goes super super well. This week I was studying more about the 2,000 stripling warriors. they are super awesome because they put there confianza in the lord and no importaba nada mas. I hope that I can be like them and put todo todo todo mi confianza en el Señor! I am so thankful for the mision and all that I am learning!!! I love you all so much!!!!
