Week 20

Hey! How is everybody doing? It has been another great week here in Piñas! We have been working hard and found a couple more people to teach! Hopefully we can bring them all to church this Sunday!
Last Tuesday we found a family to start teaching.  They  have 2 kids. Their daughter is 12 years old and she is very smart. She has read the entire Bible. I don't think there are many 12 year olds that have done that! They also have a 5 year old boy that loves to play soccer. We taught them a little on Tuesday, but then had a lesson with them on Friday. It was a really good lesson. It was really the first time that I have a had a lesson where a whole family has just sat down and listened. It was really cool to finally be teaching a complete family. They were not able to go to church this Sunday, but we are hoping that they will be able to make it this next Sunday. We have plans to go teach them tomorrow with the Branch President, so it should be a very good lesson. 
We also have been teaching like a 23 year old guy named Avanto . He is one of the members best friends. He was not able to make it to church this week because he went to the Barcelona game in Quito, but hopefully we can get him this next week. He is reading the Book of Mormon and has a lot of questions, so that is always good! 
The is also a pretty cool thing going on in Ecuador this Wednesday. If you guys all want to be doing the same thing as every Ecuadorian will be doing this Wednesday night you can watch the Barcelona and Emmelec  Soccer game. It is the championship of the Ecuadorian League and not very often the 2 teams meet up for the Championship. When they play in the regular season it is pretty crazy so it will be super crazy when they are playing in the finals! They play this Wednesday and Saturday. Whenever one of the teams scores the entire city erupts with roars. It is pretty cool to see how passionate they are for these 2 teams!
Not really much going on other than these things. We had a lot of lessons with Antonio too. I had a good conversation with him for about 45 minutes just him and I. It was pretty cool to be able to talk with somebody in a different language, and actually understand it for the most part. I can't wait to see how my Spanish will be in another couple of months!

Well that is all for this week everyone have a good week! Christmas is close!

Khristian sent  these pictures but didn't say what kind of fruit it was.  So of course I googled it-  I think it is called a Granadilla.  It was from one of the member's tree.
