Wellllllll hi family.
Me and le compcomp, aka my other half. HAHA she was eating at church because we were dying of starvation and the awesome members had brought us a little morsel of food (rice and chicken, delish) and then a Returned Missionary, Hermano (Brother) Samuel was jokingly like, ¨HERMAANA BOWMAN NO SE COME EN LA CAPILLA.¨ ("SISTER BOWMAN, YOU MAY NOT EAT IN THE CHAPEL.")
¨Pero oye, hermano, yo no estuve comiendo!¨
("But listen, brother, it wasn't me eating!")
¨Pero su compañera sí. Son uno.¨
("But your companion was. You are one.")
Which is so true. We are one, we stand, heartache to heartache. No but really we are unidas (united) and happy about it. Comps are a divine thing. There´s a reason why we preach the gospel two by two. (Also, the reason why Returned Missionaries get married so fast when they get home, because they´re used to someone by their side for 24/7 for 18-24 months, lol)
Oh, hey. Costa Rica in Nayón. Random.
YAY, CORN FIELDS.
Ecuador also got kicked out of the world cup. Sorry. BUT COSTA RICA IS WINNINGGGGG. Yeah budddddy. Go Ticos.
Mundial. FIFA World Cup.
BEST ZONA, Quito Este (east). Notice how I think every zone I´m in, I think is the best zone, hahah.
Positivity problems. (:
This is ROSA. She´s an interesting one. She´s Doulgas and Steven´s momma. And she´s literally an ETERNAL investigator. And finally this week she said, You know what hermanas (sisters)? "Thank you, I´m going to get baptized (
YEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS SSS) ............... in the other church that I visited once like 6 years ago. (WWWWWWWWHAAAAAAAAAT). So that´s an interesting situation. But it´s all good. She'll come around soon. We explained sacerdocio (priesthood) and how THIS church is the only one that has the true and complete authority to baptize and confirm here on the Earth, and we explained the Restauracion (Restoration) and what not but we shall see what happens with that. We have been praying and fasting for her. Cuz her two kids are baptized and one got the sacerdocio (Priesthood).
My multiple failed attempts of taking a cool nametag pic.... yeah it never worked.
Sunday: I spoke in Sacrament meeting, it was nice. And then we taught the third hour lesson about...drumrollllllll, missionaries and members working together! Haha -- what a surprise! It was really fun because we got people involved and did practices and what not.
Today (Monday) we had a really fun BBQ with our zone. We also played Ecuavolley, which was waaay fun. It´s more intense and it´s with a soccer ball? I think I bruised my forearms indefinitely.
I am so grateful for my Savior and Redeemer Christ. I am grateful for the Atonement in my life, and my favorite time of the week is la Santa Cena (the Sacrament). It´s my favorite part to teach too. How awesome that weekly, we get to renew our covenants. I´m just happy for this Gospel in general. I can´t imagine what life would have been like without the Gospel, nor do I want to. And that motivates me to share with others yayyyyyyyyyyyy.
MAKE GOOD CHOICES
