What a week! First off, CONGRATS to Brian and Amanda!!!! You two are the best. Pero ya lo saben... Second off, thank you so much to everyone for all the birthday wishes! This birthday was the best yet. For my birthday on Tuesday we did divisions with a few elders from the zone, one Cali homie and one Kentucy homie. All 4 of us worked in our sector and we had one heck of a day! Nothing like serving others on your birthday. :) We had some bomb pizza in the house after a great day of work. On Wednesday we went to Guaranda to do some interviews. Nothing like a post birthday mini-vacation! We were able to talk to some solid people on the bus and while we were down in Guaranda. ´´y predicarán en camino´´. It was great. The drive was beautiful as ever. Thursday, after the district meetings, some Sisters in the zone made me a birthday treat....aka around 100 donuts. Homemade donuts and homemade frosting....SOOO BOMB. Needless to say I ate one for every year. ;) On Friday one of our investigators made us some BOMB bolones de verde con chicharón (look em up) and a super good jello/flan dessert! Then, Friday night, the Familia M threw me a little birthday celebration with some bomb food and cake. I am so grateful for all the people that made my birthday special. Why would we not love this work?!
We ended off a good week with a great sunday. We found a new family (costeños from Guayaquil), talked with tons of people, and then had a branch family home evening in the house of a member. Like 50 members showed up. It was great.
Today we went to BAÑOS again! This time we went to a MASSIVE waterfall, El Pailon del Diablo. All my pics are on Elder A´s camera, but this one will do for now! It was amazing. On the way there the bus driver took this sketchy off road dirt ´´road´´. We thought we were gonna die, but then popped up right outside of Baños out of nowhere...ended up saving us like 45 minutes! Epic. I love this country.
Love you all! Please keep my baby niece Quinn in your prayers! You all are in mine.
