every day is independence day!" -Toby Keith
I hope everyone is having a great 4th of July! Hotdogs, baseball, fireworks, popcorn, popsicles, and pop music. Makes the US awesome. I cant lie though, Ecuador is pretty dope. I love this country, I really do.
This week was a bit better than the last. We are still trying to find people to teach, but this week we found some people that are more willing to listen. We just need to keep praying and finding is all! However, here in Cayambe the other two elders baptized a great family! The Zambrano family is from the coast and they passed through lots of trials to make it to the waters of baptism. I had to buy quite a few of the siser´s delicious empanadas so they could get married. They were so happy after!
Us gringos were super excited for today to come, soin the well-being meeting, we sand the Star Spangled Banner as the opening hymn. You could say that patriotism never dies!
I have been reading a small talk by Elder Ballard about mental toughness. I dont quite know how to translate into english, but the last phrase that he states is "Think you will baptize, and you will baptize!" It has animated me a ton to keep going.
Got da shooz shined :)
