Investigators and Dogs

This week we had some fun experiences here in Ecuador!

On Wednesday we had intercambios- where i get to go with another companion (a sister leader) for a day and serve in another sector. So I got to serve with Hermana Valdespino from Mexico in the sector called Nueva Jerusalen. I really enjoyed it!! She is a great missionary, and i learned a lot from her. One thing i learned was talk with EVERYONE! how else are you going to get new investigators, baptisms, and food? :) It was good to work with her for a day, and learn how to be a better missionary!

On thursday we had an interesting encounter with dogs... Here in ecuador there are a billion dogs. everywhere! so its common to have them all around in the streets. but we had an "interesting experience" with these dogs this past week. my comp and i went looking for a house that we had received a reference for. The family we wanted to visit wasnt home, and so we proceeded to leave but went out the "back" way through some trees. only to find out that we couldnt actually get out that way. so we came back down the path we came from... but this black dog found us on this path. and he started chasing us! we turned the corner and thought we were good. but we were not! he kept following us, AND called all his other doggy friends and we soon became corraled in by 5 dogs all barking and going crazy at us! any second they were ready to attack! i thought we were going to die!! i kept praying and praying! finally a man from across the street came to our rescue and kind of shooed the dogs away, and we were able to leave in safety! Wow! Heavenly Father does answer our prayers! And in this instance He answered my prayers immediately! 

This week we found an almost "golden" investigator family. The familia Delgado is very receptive to the Gospel, and are so sweet. They even came to church this past week!! The wife is almost always home, and so we have been able to teach her. and she wants to get baptized! but. they also have a grand problem. they couple is not married, and there are complications with them getting married... so we dont know when they can get baptized. But they are a great family! 

Sadly my comp got sick again this week (poor girl!) so saturday we werent able to work as much. but this week was good and we were able to teach and find 4 new investigadors! 

Interesting fact for this week. We usually only eat with spoons. yep spoons! even meat. so i have gotten pretty good at cutting meat with a spoon! haha :) Also i ate fish and shrimp (in a soup) this week and actually liked it! The flavoring was good, so i liked it! Who knew?!

muchas gracias for all of your prayers and love! i am grateful to be serving here in ecuador, and i know that Heavenly Father truly is mindful of us. He is pleased when we choose the right, and will always bless us when we keep His commandments. :)

Les amo,
Hermana Warburton

PS- Congrats Emma Buck on your baptism! :) What a great day for you that you will always remember! Great job at following the example of Jesus Christ!
