Temple!! and Fish

 Another week in the country of Ecuador! :) And this week was extra great because i got to go to the temple!!

On Saturday my companera and i got to go to the temple with our ward!! We had to leave Quevedo at 5am, and rode in a bus for about 3.5 hours to Guayaquil. But it was worth the drive! Oh how i love the temple! it was especially neat to watch a member come to the temple and do baptisms for the dead for the first time! The temple is such a sacred and wonderful place on this earth. Each time I go, i feel of the love of God so strongly. I know that He truly loves us and has a plan for each of us. We are so important to Him, and He wants to bless us so greatly! He has countless blessings just waiting for us if we are obedient! :)

On Friday we got to attend the baptism of the Bishops son. He is 8 years old. But the neat thing is, we were able to bring our investigator Denise Delgado and her 5 year old son to attend the baptism. They were able to watch and experience it all, including the fun fiesta after the baptism. It was neat to watch the investigators there, and for them to see and feel of the importance of baptsim. After the baptism we asked what she thought, and she said it was very beautiful. Yay! This family really is great and we are praying that they can get married and baptized soon!

Crazy thing. I like fish now. Yep. Remember how i always did not like fish at all whatsoever? Well for some reason, i really like fish now! i ate a whole slab of fish at a members house this week for lunch and actually enjoyed it! and also i like shrimp soup. Maybe its just the Ecuatorian way of preparation, but i have come to like fish! :)

This week we taught a menos activo familia about the importance of the temple. I love talking about the temple, and how it has blessed my life. I like showing families the picture i have of me, mom, and grandma buck at the bountiful temple. I also shared how important and grateful i am for eternal families. I shared that my grandpa buck is not here on the earth right now with me, but thanks to the temple and the plan of salvation, i can see him again! i have great admiration for these people here who travel so far to go to the temple, when i had a temple 5 min away from my home all my life!

Thats about my week in Ecuador! Anoher week filled with lots of rice and humidity! :) But thankfully its also always filled with yummy ice cream treats as well.... :) And full of the love of God at every corner. He is in every step of the way. He can see the big picture, and Im glad to know that! 

I love you all lots! May God bless you and may you feel of His never ending love!
