week # 11 Quito Ecuador

Hola Familia and Amigos !

ok, I´m running super low on time today so I´ll hurry!   This week was swell, we have 2 people that are committed to baptism, and we will have more meetings with them soon to see if they are ready to go in a week or so!  The area is still pretty tough, we`re getting a lot of contacts and rejections as we go, but we`re progressing well! 

 And I`m way excited for conference this week End! Everyone meets at the church, and I think it may be in Spanish.  Not too sure, I hope I can find a place where it`s in English. (and they have an oven at the church, so we`re going to try to make pizzas! Because we only have a stove in the apartment)  Spanish is still tough, but I practice during all the lessons, and I`m only drinking pure water too.  we get a mamita for every lunch, and our area is pretty safe.  Not perfect, but, you know.  It`s good. 

To answer your questions, Quito is poor with rich areas, and it gets richer the deeper you go to the center, or I should say, poorer the farther out you go, because it goes WAY out!  (Wealthy enough that I`m eating KFC right now! HA HA!)    and thanks for your letters and tips mom and dad!  And I hope you can put your car back together Chantel! 

And while you guys are enjoying your food harvest, I am tasting the first fruits of spiritual harvest
 (D&C 4)  
  Now behold, a amarvelous work is about to come forth among the children of men.
 Therefore, O ye that embark in the aservice of God, see that ye bserve him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand cblameless before God at the  last day.
 Therefore, if ye have desires to serve God ye are acalled to the work;
 For behold the afield is white already to bharvest; and lo, he that thrusteth in his sickle with his might, the same layeth up in cstore that he perisheth not, but bringeth salvation to his soul;
 And afaith, bhope, ccharity and dlove, with an eeye single to the fglory of God, gqualify him for the work.
 Remember faith, avirtue, knowledge, btemperance, cpatience, dbrotherly ekindness, fgodliness, charity, ghumility, hdiligence.
 aAsk, and ye shall receive; bknock, and it shall be opened unto you. Amen.
 I love this .....


Plus, there are some elders down here that say they met someone that knows our family, their dad`s name is Josten Curtis, and he works at the US embassy down here.  Know em?  Nifty. 
Well, that`s all the time I have, (normally I have an hour to write, and I can print out emails, but today we had to go down to the offices at it just ate up our day)
 Good luck Ashylne in lacrosse, Meikayla in volleyball, Madison in being the heart of the family, and Chantel for staying diligent.  Thanks to all my friends and my relatives that ask about me and pray for me, it means a lot , I love you all and pray for all of you too.
 Goodbye and I love ya!
