Feliz Cumpleaños 20

Buenas tardes a todos!! :) cómo están?!

Well this week was fun week!! :) we had some good surprises and some great experiences! thanks to everyone for your birthday wishes!! :)

this week we were able to go to the temple thursday night to start our zone conference. that, as usual was fantastic! i was lucky enough to go to the temple 2 times this month of august!! 

on friday... FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS!! :) we had our zone conference with all the missionaries in our zone at President´s house. when we walked in President wished me happy birthday, and then everyone who walked in wished me happy birthday as well! they even sang for me! we had a great training with President. learning more about the importance of sharing our testimonies about Jose Smith and the First Vision, and working with leaders and members of our ward. then we had a wonderfully delicious lunch! oh it was soooo good. mashed potatoes and gravy, chicken, carrots, and a roll.... just like a USA meal!! and i even got the seat of honor right up at the front of the room right next to President Riggins!! and we finished the meal off with cake and ice cream and them singing happy birthday to me again! 

that night we visited a family of menos activos, and the mom had cooked some food for us and was so sweet to remember my birthday! then we had a ward activity that night, and they also had brought cake for my birthday and sang happy birthday and had me bite into the whole cake!! (haha i guess thats the tradition here... so the cake gets all over your face haha!!)!! and then at night the other 2 missionaries that live with us surprised me with another cheesecake!! :) it was so sweet! to say the least, i had my fill of birthday cake!! everyone was so sweet and i had a great day! birthdays are a big deal here in this culture, and everyone that i saw made my day great!! 

our investigator carlos is doing great! he is such a great investigator! he is really searching for the truth and wants to do whats right. he has a baptismal date for septiembre! he hasnt really had a religious background, but its so amazing to see the progression he has made. i realizes now the importance of prayer and learning, and feeling the Holy Ghost. it is so great to see how Jesus Christ can change people! also we we are working with our other investigator Victor, who has come to church 3 times, and as well is doing great!! :)

thats about it for this week!! i am so grateful to be here in ecuador! i know that Heavenly Father loves us. He listens and answers our prayers. i also know that the Book of Mormon is true. as i have read it, i have learned more about my Savior, and grown closer to Him. i know that if we ever have a question or doubt, we can turn to the Book of Mormon and also to our Heavenly Father in prayer to receive an answer... como dice en Santiago 1:5.."y si alguno de vosotros tiene falta de sabiduría, pídala a Dios, quien da a todos abundantemente y sin reproche, y le será dada."

i hope you all have a great week!! love you all lots!!

con amor,
Hermana Warburton
