Good, ol' Guayaquil
This week has been a little bit nuts because in our apartment, we had a cambio on Thursday and a cambio this morning! Hermana Martinez got switched with another Hermana Martinez, y Hermana Chacón got switched for Hermana Bytheway! So now there´s another gringa in our apartment. Things are getting all changed up to prepare for the splitting of the mission and change of mission presidents. It´s crazy, but it´s fun. My companion is still Hermana Pérez and we´re still in Guayaquil.
This week, we worked hard at putting new fechas with investigadores and inviting people to church. This has definitely been the desafío aquí with these people--not wanting to come to church. But yesterday, we had 7 people en la reunión sacramental! It was a miracle and I was so happy. Some of these 7 have fechas, some don't, but we're working to help them all see the importance of the Gospel in their lives so they can accept una fecha bautismal.
This Gospel is the only thing that matters in this life if we want to have happiness and live with God and our families for eternity. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the fullness of Christ´s Gospel and the authority to perform these ordinances.
I hope that everyone has been doing well and that everyone is healthy, etc. I don´t really have any interesting stories to mention, but know that I love you. Someone this week asked me to teach them English...not really sure how that´s going to work out or if it´s even going to happen, but I´ll keep you posted.
Here are a couple pictures for your enjoyment.
I love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. In Spanish, it´s P.D. instead of P.S. Fun fact.
P.P.S. How´s Sunkist??
