I love serving here

Well this week seemed reeeeeaaaallllllllllly lllllloooooooooooong. But Monday came fast. Time is so odd out here on the mish.
Chillin' with the village children.


-We pulled a passed out drunk turi (hermano, aka dude or guy) our of the road so he wouldn´t get run over. Hashtag, the good Samaritan.

-Rosa L (the CUTEST old lady who we love to visit, whose husband refuses to give her permission to go to church, saaaad) gave us a puppy last night. Her name was Sofia and we were trying to think of every excuse and justification in the BOOK to take her home (she was freshly bathed and like a month old) BUT the missionary handbook prohibits pets of any kind, (even cui hehehe) and then we gave Sofi to Tatiana, who is one of our investigators and she was overcome with glee and I´m pretty sure that was the key to her heart and now she´s gonna get baptized.
 This morning as the sun rose, we washed our clothes in buckets -- woooo.

-SO STOKED FOR GENERAL CONFERENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think that now since there are 7 gringos (americans) in our zone, we will be able to watch it in MY LOVELY, BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS NATIVE TONGUE OF ENGLISH. But we shall see. (remember when I was the token white gurl? those days are over, wa)

DO NOT ENTER at the Cascada de Peguche this morning. muahahha, me and Elder Gonzales, the Chilean from Talca (part of Elder McGee's mish in Rancagua Chile!)

-Elena and Wary are the best people in the world. I love them, they are so special. 



Sorry, I ran out of time again because I was looking up general conerencef talks. Meh. 2 hours a week on the compooper is just not enough.

I know that we are here in Quinchuqui for a true purpose. We found an amazing family this past week, the Salazars. They're great. They know a family in our rama (branch) and two of their daughters, Tania and Samia came to church on Sunday! We also found a great family: Luis, Maria, and Diana. Diana read the Book of Mormon! I was blown away because she took such an initiative and then was asking about Joseph Smith and everything.

As for Hermana Rojas, she is doing great. She is so amazing with the people. Such a giant heart. She is truly converted to the Gospel. We both want to make our Dads' proud - so that's one of our motivations.

I read a really cool talk that a returned missionary in the Peguche Ward gave me this week. It was about adversity, and how it is necessary to progress - so true. It helps us grow and progress. Si se puede. (Yes, we can.)
                                       REPPIN THE GREAT COUNTRY OF USA FOR BEDDIE BYE.
                                                 (Some sweet jammies that an investigator gave us) 

I am SO thankful to be here. I love being a missionary, espeically here in Imbabura. There is something very very very special about these people. I love serving here, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE feeling the Spirit, and then teaching in accordance to it's whisperings. It's incredible what a difference it makes.

Remember 1 Corinthians 10:13 He won't take away the problem, but He willl give us the strength to be able to overcome it... 
13 There hath no temptation ataken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the ctemptation also make a way to descape, that ye may be able to ebear it.

Whatever you set your mind to, You can do it! Si se puede(Yes, we can.) Love y'all fambam! 

Con amor, (With love,)

Hermana (Sister) Bowman
