Cow Foot??!!

THIS WEEK I ATE COW FOOT AND IT WAS DISGUSTING! IF ANY SPANISH PERSON ASKS YOU IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY PATA DE VACA DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT. Gregorio´s baptism is at the end of this week because we had stake conference yesterday too! We´re teaching a lot of people, but not many were at their homes this week, so we need to find more people. I ate cow foot, and had to finish it although I was dying inside. I miss my family most, of course. The mission is so based on families, and that´s why we´re called Hermanas, because we are all sons and daughters of God, and it´s hard to not miss your family when it´s the main reason for the entirety of the gospel of Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. I like helping the people here. There´s this one old man who always thanks Nephi for everything whenever we pass him. We think he fell away when the other sisters left, and we invited him to church. He won´t tell us his name, maybe it really is Jose Smith. :)

Frog Eggs and Fellowshipping

This week was pretty cool! We had 5 less active members show up with us on Sunday, as well as 3 investigators! It was so nice to see them at church! I love sharing the gospel here in Ecuador! The fruits are all so weird! tried more fruits, like the mango here and another really weird fruit that I like to call "frog eggs"! It's orange and frog-egg-like inside, and you have to slurp the fruit out and it's delicious but weird as heck. I also had oatmeal juice this week? Like, I don't know why, but everyone here is just a little crazy about oatmeal. They have oatmeal flavored everything and the soap smells like it too and it's nice, but weird! ​It's starting to get hotter here, and as always, very busy. We've been able to meet so many new people, Hermana Lagos and I! They're all so nice! I love you so much mom! Say hi to my dad for me when you all go to Rose Hills this week! Say happy birthday to Levi for me too! Oh and pictures are being sent right now! I send my love to all of you and I hope you're all doing fine! I pray every night that God will watch over each of you, and I know he answers the prayers of the missionaries! I hope you all have an amazing week!!! Love, Hermana Johnson
