8 Aug 2011 Chinese in Ecuador

Hola Familia! Wow, thanks for the pictures from Bear Lake! Looks like you had an awesome time! It looks really nice up there! And Kayaks?!?! Awesome! Glad to hear RSL is still doing good as well!

Wow, yet another fast week has come and gone here in sunny Guayaquil! I know I mention something about how fast the time is going every week, and this past week was exactly the same! Staying relatively busy finding and teaching people!

So Fast Sunday turned out to be great! It was definitely needed, seeing as the past couple of week have been tough for us and our investigators. After church yesterday we managed to find a family of GOLD! They already knew a little bit about the church, which was really surprising and were really open to listen to the message. We have a lesson with them tonight as part of a Noche de Hogar (Family Home Evening) with the Reinel family. It should be pretty good! It was definitely a blessing to find them after a diligent fast. I definitely felt and still feel really happy that we could find them, because it's been tough to find people who really and truly are interested in the message. This could be the family that could be my birthday baptisms, stay tuned to see if that's the case!!!!

Also, we're having to put a big effort in helping the Branch out. Our Branch President, President Olivares, is having to run things on his own because his counselors are basically inactive, and the other Auxilaries, Primary, etc are having trouble keeping the leaders as well. So if you could, please pray for the Las Esclusas Branch and for our sector and investigators. This is going to be an interesting time, and we'll definitely need the Lord's help getting these people back attending church. Elder Reynoso and I would really appreciate it!!!

So we ate Chinese food today at a "Chifa" in our sector. It was really good, but it was a TON of food, so much that I had to take it back to the house to eat later on! That's what's in the photo I sent today!

Well family, that's about all that's going on this week in the mission. Since I've been in Ecuador, I've learned that there are so many things to do in such a short period of time! Every sector has been more and more busy every day of every week! The work can be tiring, but it is so worth it looking back and looking forward to what's to come!

Love you all family!
Take care!
