The whole purpose this week was to go around Ecuador teaching the members (mamitas) how to cook for the missionaries and also teaching First Aid to the missionaries like we’ve been doing. During the member training we teach them to use clean water, cook their meats completely, etc. and we also focus on the blessings which they receive for serving the missionaries. We like to share Alma 10:7-9 where the woman gives a meal to the prophet. I have been thinking a lot about this story and about the mamitas and I have been so so grateful for the efforts of the people in my life. I know that no good deed goes unrecognized in the heavens, and that Heavenly Father fills our needs when we fill the needs of others.
Were also able to find a new family to teach! I am absolutely loving missionary work and find joy in serving the Lord. I love Ecuador and I think everyone should come someday. It’s the absolute best.
PS. My companion this week told me I am “a chunk of brown sugar.” Oh wow, how sweet..#languagebarrier
