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."

Diana's Baptism and New Companion Elder Poma
Well, basically all that happened was me going to Quito getting my new companion. Elder Bolton left on monday morning and I was left alone ='(, but I'm okay. Then on tuesday I did divisions with a member all day. It was awesome. His name is Jairo. He's a recent convert of 8 months and he's 27, and black. Don't forget that part =). He's great though and helped me out a lot. So I've had questions as to what I do with all these trips to Quito that I have; because they are really long trips. A lot of the time I read, stuff like Jesus the Christ, the scriptures or anything else that I have, that and I know this will shock you all, but....watch worldly movies! I know. A lot of times they put on movies and we are allowed to watch them (it's almost impossible to not...). Sometimes they put on inappropiate movies and our President says that if we want we can buy more wholesome movies to watch and give it to the guy to watch instead of the garbage they sometimes put on. Don't worry. I don't watch the garbage lol. Just the good stuff like Iron Man 3 =P.
So yeah. I got my new companion who is Elder Poma. He's a little peruvian and is a little strange. He seems special, but he's not...When he's not teaching he acts immature and awkward lol, then when he teaches he's way different. He's more serious and talks as if he's giving a talk in General Conference, Elder Scott style =). He's a good guy though. He's super excited to be out here and work and he wants to be obedient.
We started out the change good with a baptism! Nice. Her name is Diana. Her whole family is member except her. They all live in Esmeraldas and she's here by herself along with her brother who lives apart. She almost got baptized with some other missionaries but didn't. She told us it was because she saw a spirit and it told her that he was going to cause problems for her. From then she started to have tons of problems in work, family, schooling and everything, she got scared and then backed off from baptism. Now she's super awesome and got baptized and confirmed. He even gave us a couple references and we'll be visiting them with her in this coming week. Awesome!
Funny thing of the week: Advertisement- Have you ever wanted to understand the book of Revelations better? Is it too hard to understand for you? Well don't you worry! Not anymore! With our new Jehovah's Witness guide to understand Revelations even the people who aren't part of the chosen 144,000 can do it! This stunning book beautifully displays the deep doctrines found in this profound book so that you can understand what the 7 headed dragon, the great whore and the horses with a mans face, womans hair, scorpion tails and wings really look like. Yup, they're so real.....In short words, Jehovah's Witness's are super dumb and think that that stuff is actually real lol.
Pics- by the way the old lady is Diana's great grandma. She was crying =)
