Updating our blog

We hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas Holiday. We are enjoying the holiday here in Quito, Ecuador. The temperature is really bad here today. It is hot. it hit 78 degrees and no snow in sight. But we are going to show you pictures of where our snow is at year round.

These are pictures of our Zone Leader Dinner and District Leader Dinner at the Mission President's home. The next pictures of of Hermana Curtis and I flying to Coca to open up another apartment and the Missionaries that helped us buy and move all of the stuff to the apartment and they were a great blessing to us We flue over several volucanoes and they were gorgeous.The next pictures are of the Branch Christmas Party.

The last pictures are of a Nativity Scene and the entire life of Christ that a woman has been working on for 30 years. Each pieces is either knitted or crocheted even the birds, ducks and fish. She is the one that we took a picture of standing next to her display. It took her 2 weeks to set it up. It is beautifuly.

We hope you have the Christmas Spirit this Season and certainly we all look forward to a Grand New Year.

Tungurahua erupting

We finally caught Tungurahua erupting this week. We were in Ambato at Zone conference and we were inspecting apartments on Tuesday. While inspecting one apartment one of the Elders yelled at us to come and look out the window. Sure enough Tungurahua was going at it.

When we got home the next evening we seen a night video of it on TV and it looked like fireworks were shooting up.

A women we know that lives in Rio Bamba which is just South of Ambato said that they felt an earthquake last evening.

At any rate enjoy.
