Happy Saturday! I am writing today because this Monday and Tuesday is “Carnaval” here in Ecuador-and most of Latin America. So my new companion and I will be stuck on the house together for 2 days straight! Woohoo oh yes, I got a new companion yesterday! Her name is Sister Barraclough and she is great. I am so excited to spend this next transfer with her here in Ambato. I know that we will see a lot of success!
My last week with Hermana Beulter we had a lot of prayers answered! During one lesson we were teaching Elizabeth and her son, Eliseo. He is 8 years old and when we asked if they had prayed about the Book of Mormon he quickly responded, “Yes!!!” We asked if her received an answer and he thought for a bit and then said, “Yep, when I prayed God told me, ‘yes’.” So cute! His mom even learned from his example and said that she was going to start paying more attention while praying. I know that Heavenly Father answers the prayers of all his children.
Then we taught Mayra and Jorge. Jorge was baptized when he was young and has not been to church for very many years. As we are teaching his wife the missionary lessons, he is relearning it all. Mayra shared with us that she had received a confirmation that the Book of Mormon is true. That night Jorge asked her, “So, you really think that all of this is true?” and she replied, “Apparently it is.” hahaha She knows it is true and cannot say otherwise. I love teaching this family. I know that they feel the Spirit.
