Super P-day

Hola mi querida familia!

How is everybody doing? Great, I hope :)

As you can see from the subject of the email, today is Super P-day. Which means that the house is clean!!! (Well...clean is relative lol. Let's just say that it is cleaner than normal :) ) We spent 2 hours cleaning today instead of 1, now we're in cyber, and I think we're going to eat ecua-pizza (pizza from Ecuador) after this. And then we are going to cut our hairs, and do our grocery shopping, and then I think we'll nap :) That's a P-day in the life of a missionary haha.

This week has been a great week. It started off with the Vinces River overflowing!!! It has been raining a lot up-river which made the river here overflow. I'm glad we live on the 4th floor, because there were TONS of houses that were full of water for 2 or 3 days :) The last time the river overflowed like that was 20 years ago. Luckily our sector is farther away from the river so we weren't swimming from lesson to lesson lol :)

Last week I mentioned that Luis and Maribel could possibly be getting married. Welllllllllll.............................THEY DID IT!!!!!!!!! They got married on Thursday, had the baptism interview on Friday, got baptized on Saturday, and were confirmed on Sunday! It was all so great :) And it all started out with Maribel saying that she would never get married....much less get baptized! It is amazing how the Gospel changes the hearts of people when they allow it to. And Luis used to have a drinking problem and Maribel would always pray that something or someone could help him. And this week she told us that she has realized the we (Elder Morataya, Elder Contreras, and I) were the answer to all of those prayers :) I love hearing all of the experiences as the people allow the Spirit to enter into their lives! The mission is the best!

Well, sorry the letter is short this week. But that's the week. Not alot happened, but the stuff that did happen was pretty exciting. We'll see if there is more to write next week :) I love all of you SOOOOO much! I'm thankful to have such an amazing family and for everything you all do for me!

Love you all!!!!
Elder Beck
