Well what a week!! I think this may have been one of the craziest weeks of the mission! Well there was a pretty big earthquake here in Ecuador on Saturday at like 7:20 at night. We were on the street at like 7:00 and we felt like we had to get to a house to teach a family and we had to get there fast. So we got to the nearest families house and started to teach them. They had just given us a cup of water when the earthquake started. It started pretty soft, but started to shake hard at the end. The family was really scared. They all started screaming and everything. Well after a while it stopped and everything got calm. We thought that it shook pretty good, but I never thought that it was strong enough to make buildings fall. Closer to where the center of the earthquake was, many buildings fell, and many people died. Here in Guayaquil only a couple of bridges fell down. The good thing is that all of the missionaries are doing good. We were in the house the entire day Sunday, and they canceled church. (the first time in the 2 years I haven't gone to church now) Well that was the big news. I am doing well. Luckily Guayaquil was not affected too much. Our investigators are doing good. Hopefully we will have some baptisms coming up. Have a great week!
