Rockabye baby, on the tree top, when the wind blows, your cradle will drop. When the bough breaks the cradle will fall, and down will come baby, crying and all!
Well if you cant tell, my new companion this change is going to be a newborn. He is entering the final stages of labor with his mother in the CCM as we speak. He is scheduled to be delivered in Quito tomorrow around 2:00 p.m. Then after some time in the NICU with the doctor (President) he will be transfered to the hands of his parent. I dont know who he is or where he came from, but I already love him and am willing to help him be the best he can be.
This week has been full of finding finding and finding. But, sadly most of the new people we found werent able to come to church. But, we did have 10 less actives come, so we hope we will be able to get some rescues very soon. Please pray that we may be lead and guided to those that are prepared to hear the Gospel.
It was raining a lot this week, and it was the last week we had together as a district. We were all really close, so we wanted to live it up a bit. We wanted to play soccer erryday and just keep the laughs going. The soccer court here is of cement, and when wet, is a great trap for Elders that think they are better at sports than they really are. The court took its revenge out on us, and we went back to the house wet and dirty everyday. And to top it off, the one day that it was dry, it decided to slap us in the face by still making us slip and fall. Been a good week for sure.
I am currently in the process of obtaining the recipe of the best encebollado here in Esmeraldas to make back in the states. Anyone ever heard of yucca? Before coming here I never had, but its like the potato. Start looking so we can have a bit of paradise later on!
Something that has been on my mind this week was a quote from Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin. "Come what may, and love it". Sometimes we think that we need to complicate humility to live it. Its as simple as Elder Wirthlin said. It has started to change the way that I see and respond to things. I know that it can do the same for all of us. Just love life and learn from it. Dont complain, its part of the journey that God has planned for each and every one of us.
Hope yall have a good week! Congrats to Dylan for yet again winning the championship in football! LPOD
