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."

Making Peanut Butter Cookies!
Well, we went to Quito again! For the 3rd week in a row....This time it was for a Zone Conference; we have to go to Quito because President and the assistants don't want to travel all the out to the jungle to do it, so we have to go there. That took up most of the week and then the rest of the week was Semana Santa. Semana Santa is the latin america version of Easter. All they do is watch Bible videos and party; so it's a very sacred time of the year for them. Semana Santa made things hard because nobody was home....We couldn't really meet with any of our investigators, but we did find a family of 6 this sunday that accepted a baptismal date....Nice....That was pretty much the only interesting thing that happened. Oh, there was one other thing. Here in Ecuador we had a Stake Conference that was broadcasted from Salt Lake. Elder Holland and Elder Scott talked to us, just Ecuador =). Pretty cool to hear them talk about Ecuador. Elder Holland started his talk out in spanish, but with a very strong accent. He pretty much said said sorry because his spanish is horrible, terrible etc...Pretty funny =). It was a good conference though.
Funny thing of the week: We were teaching a lesson to about 10 people (some investigators, some converts) and we had just finished. Then one of the converts (Jazmin Santos, 25 years old) asked if she could say something; I said "sure". Then she asked if we remembered her friend that we taught last week, "yes"... Well she said that she really likes Elder Poma. Bwahahahaha!!! We all busted up laughing and Elder Poma just looked down and had an embarassed/shocked look on his face and didn't say anything. So hilarious =)
