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."

Another Week, Another Letter
Well....another week, another letter.
Anyways. I feel like the weeks go by and we do stuff but I don't know what to write lol. I'll just write a couple of things.
So, Maria Fernanda, our awesome investigator, is doing great. We visited her earlier last week and she said that she wasn'tsure if this was true and wasn't sure if she should get baptized right now. She's always kind of mysterious and she told us something really funny. She said, "I want to meet with you guys (me and my companion) alone. Just you 2 and me. I want to ask you some questions" Well hermana there's a problem with that, we can't be alone with you...but maybe we could ask for special permission from our mission president. Then she said, "I will decide where and when and I will let you know 2 days in advance". See what I mean? She's kind of weird and mysterious.....But she 's good and wouldn't do any harm =). Then we said, "Well if it's in a closed room I don't think we could do it. Maybe if it was in your store or something like that". "No, no, nothing like that. We wouldn't be alone alone. I'll go ahead and tell you the place then.....the beach....." Whoa hermana! That's the second problem. We can't be alone with you and we can definately NOT go to the beach with you". Okay then. If it can't be the beach it could be my store". Lol. It was just really funny. I guess she really likes peaceful places like the beach, and she wanted to ask us some questions there. It would have been super weird if I wouldn't have known that she wouldn't do anything. But we had a FHE with her with her hermanadores last night and it was awesome. We only watched 15 minutes of the 1 hour restoration movie and then she said that she knows that this is true and that she feels like she should get baptized right now. Yes! She might be able to get baptized this week but more likely it'll happen next week.
Then we found a new family this week. It was a reference from some other missionaries and they're great. It's a huge columbian family and we were able to teach 3 of them. They decided to move to Ecuador because where they're living there was lots of violence and war. There were bombs going off by their house and everything. So they came over here to avoid that kind of stuff. So we'll be working with them from now on =).
Funny thing of the week: the thing with Maria Fernanda.
1. Familia Bonne. There's some less actives and an investigator in there. The one with the hands in the air is handicap and crawls around like Golem
2. The bishop, his inactive son and his wife Maria, an investigator
3. Herman Weiss and his kids. He'll be getting baptized this week =)
4. Demetrio. He's an old depressed blind guy that we're teaching. He was really excited to go to church this week =)
