|its also nice to have to hike up a mountain to eat lunch on sundays|
after church and ward council. i have never been so hungry in my life,
yet so grateful for any food they give you. at least there is a
good view afterwards (above).
here is a picture of the imbabura, an inactive volcano near our house
i realized alot of things i am thankful for....
it rained on and off fromto this past week. trying to scale a small mountain via abandoned flooded train tracks in the dark is an interesting daily activity we embark on.
and thus i am thankful for...my boots, my new alpaca fur socks, a sturdy umbrella (hermana aquinos did not last the week) and a small but powerful flashlight that clips onto my backpack (thank you christmas present).
|we also found some piglets when we were out contacting. they were |
very cute and very smelly and muddy. they seemd to enjoy the rain.
we also get followed and almost bitten by dogs on a regular basis, so we now cary a mix of rocks and animal crackers to ward them off.
the rain finally let up yesterday, which was a blessing
the bishop yesterday also asked us to give 10 minute talks, 20 minutes before sacrament meeting.
i gave mine in half kichua half spanish, and even though i butchered the kichua, the members seemed to be quite amused and pleased that i am trying to learn.
|lake san pablo and the side of the mountain that looks |
like a heart (kind of, and hardly visible in photos)
today we went to the lake san pablo, we ate greenish hamburgers and harrassed some ducks. it was a good time.
other than that not too much exciting things happened. were kind of in a slump right now as far is investigators go, but hopefully with double the contacting and member references we will be back baptizing in no time.
