If that title does not get your attention, I don't know what will!
This week was interesting, to pick up where I left off, Elder Moreira went to the hospital and had to get a blood exam and we made another appointment to return. The nurse, Hermana Pemberton, made an appointment for him to get an ultrasound and lets just say that this wasn't my first time.   It was probably was one of the funniest moments on my mission. I got to see my companion strip down into just a robe and then lay down on the hospital bed. Then the doctor comes in, who by the way is a spitting image of the old man in the movie Up. He moves the little camera thing around his stomach for 30 minutes, meanwhile I'm just making horrified faces to my companion to make him think he has some alien inside him. Then the great idea of asking the doctor of whether it was a boy or girl popped into my head. Lets just say he didn't find it funny.

Besides being in the hospital every other day, we were actually able to get alot of work done. We continued working with the Yepez Family. Their dad and daughter now have dates for the 20th to get baptized.
Going to see if it's a boy or a girl

Our long lost friend Darwin Puco finally picked up his phone. He was really surprised to hear from us because the last time we had contact with him he was a little wasted. He agreed to keep meeting with us and we were able to read in Alma 47 about Lehonti. And how little by little Satan tempts us to come down from our mountain and he traps us. If you aren't familiar with Lehonti, I highly suggest reading it.

We have been working with alot of part member families which has helped us have friends for all of our investigators. The work is starting to speed up and I hope that Elder Moreira and I can just keep up with the plans the Lord has in store for us. Besides Elder Moreira having a kidney stone, or a inflamed colon, all is well in Zion.

Hope You Know, We Had a Hard Time
I echo the words of Elder Cook when saying when we pass difficult times we just think of the Savior. He knows us and loves us!
