1st Week in Ecuador

Hola everyone!!
I have arrived in ecuador! wow! it is all so different than the US, but its beautiful and so fun to be here!
i arrived last tuesday after a long plane ride. we then had some tranings at the mission presidents house, and the next morning we got to go to the temple!! it was reallyu neat. it was all in spanish but the Spirit was still there!
on wednesday was more traning, and igot my new companion! She is Hermana Valiente from Peru! she is so sweet and a spunkly little hermana, but im learning a lot from her!
on thursdaywas my fist day in my first area. i am 4 hours away from guayaquil in an area callled quevedo. it is chèvere! the first day i met various people from the ward, and it was quite funny watching everyone try to say myname. cause no one can. not even my companion! they just cant say it! so im "hermana misionera"! hahaha but all of the poeple in the ward are so sweet. they are very welcoming and loving! pero...... i can not understand ANYTHING!!! ANYTHING! oh boy. it is so hard! these cute people ask me questions and i just hope the answer is sì! because i have no clue what they are saying. and that includes my companion. i feel bad but half the time i just nod and hope that she didnt ask me to do anything important in the next 10 minutes! hahaha
the food is ..... different... the first day i was servd this soup with a cow hoof in it! ah! they said i didnt have to eat it because i was not accustomed to the food yet...So the funny thing is that its so hot and humid here, but they usually always serve HOT soup first and then a huge huge scoop of rice, some kind of meat, and a like potato salad thing (but its not potato salad...) and SOOOOOO much food. after each meal i think im going to explode! hahah  but the poeple are so nice, and i like having lunch with them, because they are fun to be with. and i have to share the spiritual thought after each meal... and its been going not too bad so far... thanks to the help of my comp!
on friday i invited a girl named katty to be baptized! ah! its one of the goals we have the fist week! we were talking with her (and i like cant understand anything) and i shared a scripture that through Christ we can do anything, and then my comp was like "invite her to be baptized" and i was like Ah!!! but i did. and though she has doubts, we gave her a date for the 31 of oct. i really couldnt understand aything, and i hope she understood what i said... but it was a good lesson!!
when my comp found out that i sing opera... so she tells that to all the houses we visit (well the members of the ward) and so then i sing a little bit of opera for them! haha its so fun to sing, and the members seem to enjoy it! I was asked to sing at the baptism of some hermanas in our zone, and so i sang a number... haha but while the candidates were getting changed after the baptism, they invited me to sing more... so i san 3 more songs!! haha but it was really fun! even though i cant speak the language, i can sing it, so right now its one way that i can share mytestimony!!- through song!
its fun to be in ecuador and experience new things! its all so different than what i would have imagined. but i am in a great ward, with great people. my companion is awesome! so im excited to see what things lie ahead! gracias for all of your prayers and love! Heavenly Father loves us, and know each of us individually! Invite others to come unto Christ and understand that love that He has for each one of us!! :)
Les amo!!!! :)
