Week #38 - Calderón, Ecuador - April 20, 2015

Dear Family and Friends,

This week has been pretty rainy. The weather here is kind of weird in general. In the morning and night, it can get cold enough to need a jacket, but in the afternoon, you sweat just walking around outside. In Quito, you can have more or less about 3 weeks to a month without rain, but then a week with just rain off and on everyday. I've been told it's like that year round.

We have been celebrating a lot of birthdays in April. We have already celebrated 5 or 6 of them, missionaries and people in my ward, including my companion's birthday. This week we celebrated Brother Vaca's birthday. The Vaca family is in my ward and invite us over a lot. I recorded the whole time everyone was singing "Happy Birthday." It was pretty funny because one of the kids forgot it was his dad's birthday. He ended up yelling out at the beginning of the video that he forgot it was his birthday. Pretty funny! 

The leaders of the mission had a meeting with the mission president this week, so I spent most of the day with the companion of the DL in our zone, Elder Guarena. He hung out with my companion and I and we spent the day tracting and visiting our appointments. We also had a ward activity watching the movie, "Meet the Mormons." The mission leader said it was a huge hit in the states, Canada, and Mexico, but I haven't heard any of you guys say anything about it...If you haven't seen it, I would recommend it. It was a great movie that responds to a lot of questions that many people have about the church. The mission leader also said that the funds the movie went to helping charity organizations.

Sorry this is short, but that was basically how my week was in a nutshell. We're still praying and hoping to have a baptism, but we continue to postpone the one we had scheduled for basically every weekend for almost a month. We will have to see how things turn out. Have a great week everyone! ¡Pilas!
