Helaman 5:12 "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Elder Tirado, Elder Thomas and Elder Black
Writing letters get old after 15 months lol. So lazy....meh...........
Anyways, we had a good week. We had 7 people in church this week which is a record for me in a very long time. It was so awesome to see so many investigators in church this week. 4 of them have baptismal date and the other 3 are people who need to get married. 2 of them are Enrique and his wife Sofia. I was actually surprised to see both of them in church. Normally only Enrique goes. So they have everything, attendances, and lessons, they just have to get married. They have money and everything. Enrique wants to get married but Sofia doesn't. She says that he's never going to change and that they're better off without him and all that stuff. But we commited them to read and pray together and we feel that their relationship is getting better. Thanks for your prayers. Keep it up gang! Then our other people with baptismal date are all kids 12 and younger. One of them is named Pierro. He's 11 and he was explaining to the other 3 kids about the church and everything. What we do in Sacrament Meeting, what they do in Primary, how to sing the hymns. Everything. He even goes to church by himself and gets there 20 minutes early! He's great. We just have to get the good to go from his parents.
So everything here is going good. Good companion. Good food. Good investigators. All good here. As you notice in the picture that I attached there is another missionary. So now we're in a trio! Again.....So the gringo is my companion Elder Thomas, and the other one is Elder Tirado. He's a wicked missionary and so President put him with us so he doesn't go anything dumb. We think that President just doesn't know what to do with him anymore. He'll only be with us for 2 weeks until the real changes get here.
So....Yeah....That's pretty much it. All good. Nothing new. We were traveling between here and Quito most of the week so we were only here 4 days.....yup.....I'll just go ahead and end my letter now.....can't really think of anything else to say............................................................................................yup....
