Well hello family and friends. How is everyone doing. Well here in Ecuador its the time of year they call Carnival and its a little bit crazy! haha. It started yesterday and last to Wednesday.  Here in Ecuador everyone goes nuts with music all day, and its really just a Giant water fight, mud fight, silly string fight, paint fight, powder fight, you name it.  They just go crazy with it and then jump in the river or a little plastic pool to clean up and then they start over again. haha. Its crazy. So yesterday going home from church they got us. But not bad at all. The silly spray does the least damage and thats what a few boys sprayed us with. Anyway, the past year the missionaries were not allowed to go out but this year we are allowed to leave according to our own judgment but if we get hit with more than water we have to go back. Haha, so i think we will go out tomorrow and try to avoid as much as possible but I'm almost positive well get sprayed with something. Who knows. 

Well, i have been studying the doctrine of Christ this week for most of my personal studies and I have really loved it. It has helped me a lot! I love 2nefi 31! its great! The doctrine of Christ is all over the book of mormon and the bible but that specific chapter is just packed. And i love it because it just repeats over and over and over again the process of what we need to do to receive the great blessing of the eternal life with or loving father in heaven. I dont have time to write everything so i invite all of you to read it. It repeats the 5 simple steps that we need to follow. Have faith, repent, baptism, holy ghost, and endure to the end! If we humbly follow those steps and with a sincere heart and love for our father, we have the promise. I love that! I love you all so much! I hope you are all enjoy life and living it up to the best. God bless you all!
