Thanksgiving in Ecuador

Ecuador doesn´t celebrate our Thanksgiving of course, so we had planned to do a dinner on Thursday and leave work a little early. Then one of our senior missionaries found out he has to have some surgery on that day. Then we thought we would have our dinner the following Sunday, since it is census day and we all have to stay at home until 5 p.m. We are not allowed to leave our apartment, they even cancelled church. However, Elder and Sister Rose leave on Saturday and we wanted them to be with us. So Saturday we decided to have our dinner on Sunday. We had a very good meal. I cooked a turkey and a ham, and even made a lemon pie that wasn´t too bad. Everyone else brought a dish or two and it was delicious. We are going to have the leftovers Monday night before FHE.
