September 2015


These pictures are from a couple of P-days ago

Last week was pretty crazy. Tuesday I was in barrio Condor and Friday in barrio Orquideas, and on both Wednesday and Friday we did invasions in different sectoros in the afternoon. I also had an intercambio with the AP, Elder Fernandez. He is from Chile, lived in Brazil, and is super cool.  So yeah, really interesting week. 

On Saturday there were 11 baptisms in the zone. We had the Noche Blanca and everybody was running all over the place. Hectic. We are using the members a lot right now to find new investigadores. Today we ate with a family from Brazil. They made us a Brazilian Lunch and it was awesome!  


This week we did invasions again everyday. With the invasions they can come from district leaders or zone leaders, but the invasions this week were a request from the stake president. We had an activity in the stake on Saturday, so we were inviting everybody to that. 


So this week that went by really wasn't very exciting. But this week that is coming up should be pretty awesome. We have a 70 that is coming to talk with us and also right now the zone is pretty close to meeting the goal for baptisms and rescues. If we meet the goal we are going to have lunch with President, so that should be pretty cool. 

Today we went to Parque Samanes and played a couple different things. The plan was futbol, but President isn't giving permission right now for futbol, so we played wall ball, hand ball, basketball and tennis. I left with a bit of a sunburn, but it was pretty fun. This week we have ward conference and to get people excited we have activities every night, so we're going to try and invite a ton of investigators so they can get to know the members. Bueno, that's about it... 


Well, truthfully we didn't have a great week this week, but we've figured out a little of what happened, and we're ready to have a much better week next week! I had intercambios again. I went to 2 different sectors, so I was away from my sector a lot again. 

This Sunday we had Ward Conference and that was cool. We had a TON of people at church, but a lot of them were from the stake. We are growing in the ward though, which is good. This week we also had a visit from a 70, Elder Caldaron. He is from Quito. He gave us a pretty good capacitacion (I dont remember how capacitacion is in English).  Nothing else special happened. Well, we did celebrate my birthday a couple of times, nothing too big, just nice and small.

Last night we had a little Happy Birthday dinner with the Familia Torres. They are super awesome. La Hermana Torres just had her birthday on Saturday, so we met in the middle and celebrated on the 27th. :)

This is the Hermana Gina- She is a member that we're working with. She got me a tie for my birthday :)

 Familia Plaza... Thank you for the Birthday Cake!

 ZONA ORQUIDEAS! LA PODEROSA! We did a service project as a zone. That was pretty dope.
