First of all I would like to Felicitar (I don´t remember the word in English) Dad for his Birthday! I hope you had a great birthday Saturday! I hope you ate a lot at Luigi´s!
At the beginning of the week we had a holiday called Carnaval that had happened in Ecuador. One of the things that happens is where people throw water balloons at each other and throw colored water at each other. It can be dangerous for other circumstances that are happening. They told us to stay in our house. While we were there we made a really cool map of our sector. We made it marking with specific pins who are the investigators, less active members, Presidents of Organizaciones, Counselors, Recent Converts, and several other things. It turned out really nice and the next missionaries that replace us will love it!
This week we taught Jimy and he was great. He said he was going to come to Church but the day before he got pink eye so he couldn't come.
Eduardo Guzman has been good. He is a really quiet person and has had a rough upbringing. His dad died when he was young and his mom doesn't live near him. He is living with his godfather. He is a really good guy. I feel so much desire to help him feel the spirit and live the gospel. He is a phenomenal person.
This week I had the opportunity to help one of the missionaries that is in my zone. He is an office missionary. He has been looking different and acting different. Also they aren't doing very well in their sector. I pulled him aside to talk with him. We talked about his sector and gave him several ideas to "jump start" the work. Then I asked him how he felt. He said he felt really bad. He says he feels that sometimes he is not a missionary. He told me that he sometimes feel like he should go home. I told him that he is important. That God has called him to work in Ecuador and that he has prepared his children to listen to the message the missionary will and is sharing. I reminded him that he is important to the Lord. He thanked me and I told him that I am here to help him in the work as a friend. Being a leader doesn't mean having everyone look at you or receiving honor from others but quite the opposite. It means that those that are among us that we have the great opportunity to serve them and treat them just as Christ would. My love for God and his Children becomes more complete.
