We had divisions this week and I finally got to go deep in the country where all the Lamanites are that mainly just speak Quichua. (Most speak Spanish, but only to us. When we're not around, everyone and their dog speaks Quichua). I was doing divisions in Agato, but I also got to go around 2 other wards, Imbabura, and Compañía. It was only an 8 hour divisions but we found people that now are progressing and have a baptismal date for the, so that's awesome. This week the assisants and presidnet also did divisions with us. Elder Linderman went with my companion, Elder Mazzarelli, and Presidnet Richardson and Elder Santana (My old companion) went with me for just an hour. We visited one of our families that has potentail. We taught lesson 1: The Restauration and it was powerful with us three. I felt a super strong spirit.
This week we had an activity "Theater Night" where we watched the 1 hour movie of Joseph Smith. It was good for the investigators we have, along with some members that haven't seen it yet. In church I was the 2nd speaker and I talked about fasting and how it applyes to the atonement. It was like a 12 minute talk. I've given a lot more talks in Spanish that English now... This week we found another potential family called la famili Valensuela-Lita. We rang their doorbelland set an appointment for night. In we taught them lesson 1: The Restauration and they were very open and accepted the message. They didn't come to church this week but I feel really good about the family. I know they can progress soon.
Other than that,morning I finished Jesus the Christ. So that was a milestone for me. I think it has like 793 pages. Recently I started reading the Book of Mormon in Spanish again (This time I'll read it from cover to cover) and I'm trying to read all of True to the Faith too. I calculated it and I should finish all of that by mid-June at the pace I'm reading. Then I'll accomplish my goal: Read the Bible (New and Old testaments), Book of Mormon (English and Spanish), Doctrine and Covenants, Pearl of Great Price, Preach My Gospel, The Missionary Handbook, Jesus the Christ, Our Search for Happiness, Our Heritage, and True to the Faith in the mission. BOOM.
Disculpen, esta carta fue demasiado grande jaja. Pero ¡estoy bien feliz aquí en Otavalo, Ecuador en las misión! Estoy viviendo milagros y el Señor me está convirtiendo a un mensajero de la verdad. Tengo un conocimiento más fuerte de este evangelio y estoy ganando experiencia que yo nunca hubiera podido lograr si yo no estuviera a la misión. ¡Muchas gracias a todos que que me hayan apoyado! ¡Les quiero mucho!
