26 March 2012

Hello once again family! Wow, is it already the end of March?! Incredible to think that April, and General Conference, are this week! It was a really busy week here in Amazonas 2. I was able to meet a lot of the members of the ward, and from what I can tell, they are super excited to help us out in the mission work. What is a big help to us is there are quite a few returned missionaries who attend our ward, one who just returned 3 weeks ago! Having their help will be a great benefit We even had a baptism (Surprise for me!) on Saturday, of sister Marcia, whose family are members. Her husband even baptized her, which was really neat to see! Not too much more more to say about the baptism, as it was a freebie for me, but this week we have been teaching a few people and families who have baptismal dates for April, so we'll be working to help them progress towards baptism. This week we'll be working super hard to get people committed to go to General Conference, mainly on Sunday, as that's the only day that counts for Sacrament meeting attendance. So this week once again will be another running all over the place like madmen type of week, just like almost every week here is in the mission. It only rained twice this week here in Guayaquil, but they were both pretty big storms. The one that wasn't the most welcomed was yesterday's torrential downpour right before leaving Church. Not having our umbrellas didn't help any, luckily we made it to our appointment without getting too terribly wet.

Well family, another week is sure to fly by, especially with General Conference! It's hard to believe that it's already been 6 months since October's conference! I'll be sure to enjoy it, and I hope you all will as well.

I love you all, take care, more next Monday!
