" And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren, yea, and every one that dwelleth in the land; yea, to preach unto all, both old and young, both bond and free; yea, I say unto you the aged, and also the middle aged, and the rising generation; yea, to cry unto them that they must repent and be born again."
Alma 5:49

Training is Almost Over

Life here is going well. I´m enjoying me time with Elder P., and we are working really hard. Next week we have changes. I finish my training (what?!... I´m going to be normal!) and have no idea if I stay or go (to another area in Ecuador).  I hope I get to stay this change, but I want more whatever the Lord has in store for me. I´m sure it will end up being better. 

One of the groups we are teaching is the Alacón Family. She has been a member of our church her whole life, and he is investigating. He asked us this week to bring someone who wasn´t born into the church so he could learn how to experience this "change of heart". He has a hard time accepting that there could be one true church, but is preparing to get baptized on the 6th. Yesterday, the really-awesome-recent-convert Elders´ Quorum President joined us on an appointment with Diego (the husband). It was a really great lesson. He focused on how it is through the Book of Mormon that we can learn for ourselves if the church is true.

We are also teaching the Elders´ Quorum President´s son. He is twenty, and has recently attended church with us three times. For some reason that I don´t completely understand, he wanted to acompany us on the visit yesterday, which we gladly let him do. We then went back to his house and taught the Plan of Salvation. He accpeted a baptism date for the 13th. He´s really cool, and definitely has enough support from the ward. He´s one of the best players on the soccer team that is going to the Stake finals ;)  (In the US we typically have basketball tournaments).

I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving.
