Well this week we had a surprise Zone Conferencia with another Zone in Guayaquil. The whole meeting was about staying in the gospel forever and never going inactive and it was awesome! Love my good Mission President and his family! It was super powerful and I also saw some of my buddies there!
Well, there had been a lot of rumors that we weren't going to do a Christmas party and I was so sad, so after the Zone Conferencia President Moreno just ended it and then he said, "Okay follow me," so we all followed him (like 34 elders) and he took us to CHILI'S!!! YES!!! I ate American food and heard American music and it was awesome! He rented out Chili's for us and it was an awesome surprise! After that, it was just a normal week but we did marry 2 FAMILIES this week! It was a huge blessing from God that these great people got married! First, we got hermana Yanira married to her husband John who's a member and so is his family! It was awesome because they didn't have a lot of money and it's a good $75 to get married, but their family came in and helped them out! Yanira is getting baptized this Saturday for the NOCHE BLANCA! Our other marriage was for the Familia Cabrera! Their son was baptized back in Agusto and there daughter was baptized like 3 weeks ago, and this family wanted to get baptized but just didn't want to get married until February, but we shared Alma 5 with them and they had a huge change of heart and got married last week! The 2 of them are getting baptized this Saturday as well!
Also yesterday at church, we had 2 more investigatores who attended church in preparation so that they could get baptized and they came as well to church yesterday! It was just a great week with a ton of great things! Last night as well the missionaries in Guayaquil put on a show for Christmas and we had a ton of success! Just a great week! And this week should be another great week!
YA MISMO NAVIDAD!!
Love, Elder Hoole
