Semana 2 in Quevedo

Second Week in Ecuador! I am SLOWLY learning to understand the people more! I think i got more out of the conversations than last week... hopefully... :)

I have to say this week was a little different than normal. my companion got sick, so for a couple days i had to do "comp study" alone, and we didnt have a usual schedule. but she is feeling a lot better now. Also it was a little bummer of a week with not a whole lot of success with new investigators or the old ones. But its ok! This is a new week and we will work harder and do even better!!  :)

On Jueves we had interviews with presidente riggins. it was kinda a surpise, i think, and since i had an interview with him the week before when i got here, the interview was pretty short and to the point. he is a great presidente! you can tell he really loves the missionaries, and knows a lot about missionary work. his wife wasnt there, but she is also really great. both are really tall (haha), but good hard workers.

This week i had more new food... haha :) Patacones. They are fried banana things. Were you smush the banana and then fry it in oil. Ok and they are nasty. But i  have to eat them when i am served them! and one time hermana galarza in the ward gave me a huge plateful. you can also put cream cheese on top with them, so i ate like 80% cream cheese and 20% patacone with every bite hahahah!! they are a favorite food here, so im hoping i learn to like them more!! Also a really nice member bought rolls with this ham sauce inside for us.. it was interesting. But hey! im trying all these new foods , and its kinda fun! :) the members are always so so nice to feed us almost everytime we are at their house. they always share everything! 

So a little about where i am. we are living in the center of Quevedo in a little apartment. its not too bad. there isnt much air, but luckily we have 2 fans per person. its just me and my comp in our apartment. we live on the 3rd floor... so lots of stairs each day haha. the water is cold, but i love it cause im always way hot (and i was told this was the cold season... oh boy). the toilet kinda doesnt work...also the milk here is different. haha but its a cute little casa!

we usually take taxi, bus, but the majority of the time we walk. we walk all over, but its fun to walk! and we will probably never get cars or bikes. the bug bites can be bad here... if im not careful i can get lots of bites in one night.. and oh how they itch! haha! 

cool thing this week: i was able to teach the first lesson of the Resturation to a less active family! and i think they understood most of it... haha! :)

learning more and more each week! I know this Gospel is true, and that through Christ we can do all things! :) i love you all lots! :)

les amo,
Hermana Warburton
