It was another very good week here in Piñas! Probably the best week yet!! We had some good lessons with Mario and Maria, and also found another new investigator in Portovelo. His name is Arturo .He has a baptismal date for the 14th! We also found a bug that I've never been seen before. It looks like a giant ant, with wings and is as big as my hand... It was very scary. We had some spaghetti this week to, so that was a little different!
Mario and Maria are progressing very well! They went to church this last week so Mario has been twice and this was Maria's first time. They really only need one more time going to church and they can be baptized! The only problem is they will be in Guayaquil so we will have to wait one more week after that... So they should be baptized on the We are going to their house tonight for a family night and Maria will be making us some tacos. We are pretty excited about that!
We also found Arturo this week. He is a 60 year old miner. He is a very cool guy. It is a miracle that we found him! He was at church too and has a baptismal date for the 14th as well. He has a son named John that has some brain damage. We had a pretty cool lesson with him yesterday. We went to his house just planning on teaching him a little about the Book of Mormon, but has soon as we started with a prayer we thought we needed to teach lesson 2 (the plan of salvation.) It ended up being an awesome lesson that was completely guided by the spirit.
These are the 3 investigators that will be getting baptized pretty definitely. They are all very cool people. We also have another family that did not make it but they are very cool too. They own a chicken and fries shop. We went there to buy fries and taught them. After that, they invite us every night to go and eat there as we teach. They won't ever let us pay and we feel pretty bad about it. They always insist that we don't pay. They are some of the most charitable people I have ever met. Some nights when we don't go in they get mad at us because they had already prepared our plates.
Well that is all for this week I hope you guys all have a good one!
Love, Elder Sorensen
