Semana 34

Hi everyone! I hope all is well for you all. Things are going good here en Pelileo.

Conference was amazing! We had to go to the stake center in Ambato to watch it since there`s no satelite in the chapel en Pelileo. Ambato is about a 30 - 45 minute drive from Pelileo. We were in Ambato all day Saturday and Sunday. Since Ecuador is an hour ahead of Utah, the Priesthood Session ended at 9:00 pm here I watched some of the sessions in spanish and some in english, and I think I honestly like it better in spanish. I can understand it in spanish and I just don`t really like listening to english. The American Elders that were there think I`m weird for that, but oh well.. haha

We were able to visit a less active that we`ve been trying to find for quite a long time now. She lives in a place called Pingue which is on the way to get to Baños and Baños is in another zone. We got on the bus to Baños hoping to get off at the right stop. We got on and since Baños is a huge tourist site, there were Americans on the bus which was kind of weird. Since we`ve never been to Pingue before, we didn`t know where to get off and the bus only makes stops if you ask them so we accidently left the zone and entered Baños! Luckily we got off before getting too far into Baños and were able to catch another bus and get off at Pingue. We found the less active. She got baptized about 4 years ago but her husband abandoned her and her two kids about a year ago and so she stopped going to church since she had to start working a lot more. She has a really strong desire to start coming to church again and she wants the blessings in her life again. She came with us to Ambato on Saturday to the morning session of General Conference.

The husband of the Family G came with us to Ambato for the Sunday Morning Session of Conference and he really liked it! They are progressing well. They have a baptismal date for the 19th of April. The only problem is that they refuse to have an interview with the counselor of the mission president. If they don`t have this interview, they can`t be baptized. 

The Branch is really changing. There is a lot more excitement in the members and a lot of them are inviting people to listen to our message, and help out the less actives. I think some of them are doing it to get food from us but enough though they want the food they`re starting to see that`s there`s blessings from participating in missionary work. Soon it will get to the point where the food is just a little side blessing and they`ll do it regardless of getting food or not. 

Well that`s about all for this week. Have a great week everyone!
