We had the privilege of attending the Special Assembly Day on Sunday here in Quito. Friends came from all over Ecuador who are serving in the English groups and congregations. We made lots of new friends and delighted to see some friends we had meet from before. We had about 300 in attendance and had excellent speakers, a GREAT day!
Take a look at the rest of our assembly pictures in Picasa :)

One Friday evening a few of our friends came over for dinner. Very intrigued by us coming from Hawaii they wanted to know what kind of food we eat. Alyssa, the awesome cook that she is, decided to make loco mocos for everyone :) What? they say, crazy bugger??? But oh how they loved it!
Comments from the chef... "the gravy was a bit tricky but thanks to my sous chef Helen it was all good!"

|after a 7:30am to 8:00pm service day we all get ready for a night out|
Hi everyone so sorry we have been terrible with updating the blog! The good news about that is we have been keeping ourselves busy :)
We've been here a little over a month now and we're getting really comfortable here. The other day armed with a map of Quito and the knowledge the other brothers and sisters instilled in us we were able to go out in service all day with out any locals! I was quite proud of ourselves.
Oh and because many of the brothers and sisters are APing this month we're starting to do early mornings and evenings, which are my favorite! That reminds me, memorial invites start Saturday so get pumped people!!
Other than service we've been hanging out with the brothers and sisters and having so much fun. You can sample some of that from our slideshows ;)
Thanks to those who have been commenting and sending us emails we love hearing whats going on back home, keep um coming. We're also working on how to figure out Picasa so we can have all our pictures and videos up, will post the link soon!
**GUINEA PIG UPDATE.... I still would really like to try one but I'm hearing bad things. One, they are often not bled properly. Two, even if it is bled properly it can make you sick with amoebas. Two sisters and one brother that we met were in the hospital for amoebas, to be fair it could have been from either the guinea pig or lettuces, but we just can't be sure.
