Week 63

So basically I´m in the same area, just the other half, haha.

Elder Arratia and I are doing great. We were able to set a baptismal date with Juan for this week! He had his interview, and everything´s good to go! Another investigator, Fatima also attended and we were able to extend a date for the 14th of November. He accepted :) We found a less active member who hadn´t gone to church in forever. We visited her, and she went this Sunday. Along with her 8 year old son, who also wants to be baptized. So yeah. A lot of good things are happening here.

ALSO, Jefferson and Moroni (From my old ward) Were baptized this week :D It was awesome. They felt so good, and both of them bore their testimony.

This Saturday there is a multi-stake conference to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the church in Ecuador! We´re allowed to go to that, and we´re super excited. So because of that, Juan´s baptism is going to be on Friday.

That´s pretty much all for now. I´m doing great. The water in our house went out twice this week and I shaved without any water or shaving cream for the first time in my life. So that was fun.

 Love you all!

Elder Arratia and I

Yes, that´s a pink chicken.

Jefferson got baptized :D Future missionary!

Moroni got baptized, too!

Week 62 - Transferred 2 Blocks Away

So yeah. Carla was baptized and confirmed! She´s doing fantastic. Jefferson´s going to be baptized this week, and Moroni´s going to be baptized on the 31st, and Katherine on November 7th :)

 Sadly, I will only be able to attend Jefferson´s baptism because I have been transfered. I´m now with Elder Arratia from Bolivia. He´s cool. He used to be in my old area with Elder Criddle who trained him (My old comp). I´m still in Monte Sinaí, just in a different ward. My current house is literally two blocks down from my old house, haha. But yeah.

Things are great. The phenomenom of "El Niño" is supposed to be pretty intense this year, so that should be fun. We´ve been feeling light earthquakes every now and then. So that´s nice. Aaaand, we killed a mouse in our apartment. So yeah. That´s all for now :)

Week 60 - General Conference was Amazing

Welp, General Conference was amazing. I loved like, every single talk.

It was nice to hear from the new apostles as well. I think my favorite talk was Elder Neil L. Andersen's about how faith is a choice.

We were able to take Carla and Carmen to three of the sessions, and they absolutely loved it. They´re way converted. We´re going to ask permission on Sunday so that we can take them to the temple at the end of this month so that Carla can do some baptisms for her ancestors :)

Jefferson´s doing super well, too. He wasn´t able to go to general conference, but he´s still progressing. We talked with his parents, and they´re really nice people. They agreed to letting us watch Meet The Mormons with them on Thursday night.

Alexandra´s no longer progressing. She now has a job on Sundays, and she´s not putting in her part. We´re going to see if we stop visiting her this week.

I´m doing fantastic. Last Pday we bought a family size Hawaiian pizza and watched movies at the house. So yeah. That´s our life. I love you all!
