It was the last week of the change and the light up the world initiative made us do a lot of stuff together as a district and a zone. So it was really fun. One day this week we washed the bishops car. The other day we went to Ambato as a Zone to help a member clean up a school and stuff. That involved painting, moving rocks, sweeping, and weeding. But the cool thing was we weeded with knifes so ya... it was actually pretty usefull. Then we also weeded a member in our wards patio. So once again with knifes and screw drivers weeded in beetween the cracks in the sidewalk. It was pretty fun. And always after the service project they feed us...so that`s pretty awesome!
But the best day this week was saturday. We had 4baptisms!! The Children of the familia Ponton were baptized. This familia used to live in Quito and had wanted to be baptized for forever but then the parents had things that happened and they couldn`t but the kids did. So it was an awesome night. My first baptism!!!
Then Sunday was Cambios. And we all knew that one of us was going so it was pretty sad. We went to a family in the ward and had a Noche de Hogar (Family Night) with them and found out the cambios. Elder Arevelo, our district leader is going to Quito, but the rest of us are staying here and we are getting a new district leader. So I am really excited that I am staying with my campanion for another 6 weeks!
But another awesome thing that happened is that the American couple in our ward. Grace and Benjamen, Grace`s dad came to the Baptism and we talked to him and stuff here that`s different and that we miss from the United States, like peanut butter. You can not find peanut butter here anywhere and if you do it is so expensive! But he went and bought Hermana Barraclough and I a huge jar!! Like a costco sized jar that should last us the whole cambio but probably won`t! We were really happy and are eating it with almost everything!!
Love you all!! Hope your week was good!!
