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."

Whew! This week we did do a lot. We taught a bunch of lessons, found new investigators, and have people with baptismal date. A bunch of stuff. So Orlando did not get baptized this week. I guess his baptism will be forthis saturday. Don't worry, he's doing good though =).
I don't know if you remember, but a while back we were teaching a guy named Henry. Well, after about a month we finally visited him again. He's still living with Keli (an inactive 15 year old member...) and he told us that in 2 weeks he'll be going into the military. It was possible that he could have gotten baptized, but on friday we visited him and told us that he was informed wrong, that he'd be going into the military tomorrow, or last saturday. Okay then....lol. So he went to the military. But the good thing is that Keli will finally stop living with him and she can keep the lay of chastity!
We also found a great investigator this week. Her name is Alejandra, she's Pedro Heredia's girlfriend. They're not married, but they want to. Before, Alejandra didn't want anything to do with the church, but now she even wants to get baptized! Nice. She's really good though.
Then here's something cool that happened. So there's this tribe here that wants the missionaries to go and visit them. A while back the missionaries tried to visit them but it didn't work out for some reason. But I guess they want us to go and teach them =). They live about 2 hours away from here and they used to walk around naked and kill people. Now they put clothes on and they only kill people sometimes. Once they killed 2 catholic missionaries, but that's because they weren't invited there and they went unexpected. But we've got a connection with the chief =). Not sure how it'll work out or anything. I think it would be awesome to teach an entire tribe!
That's all for now. I'll be going to Quito this week and the week after as well, so not much should be happening...
Funny thing of the week: So last week I bought some yogurt. It was fine and everything and then I pulled it out this morning to eat some. I noticed that some yogurt was leaking out of the bottle into the fridge. I felt the bottle and noticed that it was hard and inflated. Knowing that it was pressurized I aimed the bottle at the kitchen sink and slowly unscrewed the lid; some air came out. Then, suddenly it exploded and shot out of my hands and onto the floor like a rocket. I guess the yogurt had fermented or something and the pressure built up a bunch. It was pretty funny because it got yogurt all over the wall and it kind of scared me since it blew up =)
