So I just went to my first pioneer meeting in Ecuador on Friday.
For some weird reason I had thought it was supposed to start at 1:30. I wondered why dad left the house early. It actually started at one.
But I was still rushing to get there on time (1.30???) as I had been helping Chad with some technical stuff at home to make sure he was all good for his work. When I finally got there - its like a 15 minute walk - I could hear the speaking from round the corner, and that when I realized I had the time wrong. How embarrassing. It was made more embarrassing by the amount of people there.
Now in my last circuit we had around 30 (from memory) attend the pioneer meeting, and in the one before that, it was about 80 or so. So imagine my surprise when I walked into an over full hall! There were an extra two rows of seats put in and the two back schools were full too - I was ushered into one of those. Later it was announced how many were in our circuit - 230! yes that's right two hundred and thirty regular pioneers! That is so many - and a privilege to be part of. I wish I had a photo - but I don't. So oh well how sad
