Ok, sooooo transfers...I was transfered to BARCELONA!! Wow, I never thought that I would serve here, but I serving in Barcelona 1st ward. We live about 5 minutes from the Sagrada Familia, it is amazing. It is sooo different than Valencia or Benidorm, but I am excited. My companion is Hermana Fernley, she has been out for a transfer, and is very very very shy, but so nice! I just can´t believe I will be serving in Barcelona!
And you might not be as excited as I am, but I got to see Hermana Bennion, we only live 40 minutes from each other! That is so exciting because we haven´t seen each other in over a year!!! We ran and basically jumped on eachother in the train station. I am excited to live by a lot of hermanas.
Anyway, I don´t know if I ever told you, but my flower suitcase broke when I got to Benidorm, that was a fun trip of dragging it uphill. So, I had to buy another one yesterday to travel to Barcelona, well, it broke before we even got to the bus station to Valencia. So, we dragged the suitcase without wheels, but with all my books, to the bus station. When we got to Valencia I called the zone leaders and asked if they could let me borrow a suitcase ha ha. So they are wonderful and brought me a suitcase and I will return it to them the next time they have a meeting here in Barcelona. Ha ha, if you could have seen Hermana Roberts and I dragging the broken suitcase. And her suitcase broke when she came to Benidorm, so I have had a lot of great experiences dragging heavy suitcases uphill through the city of Benidorm. I love the mission and moments like this that I will never forget.
Ok, ridiculously funny story, well to me it is. So, in Benidorm we had just started teaching this guy from Romania, he is probably about our age. WEll, I was bearing my testimony to him about the Book of Mormon, and then he just looked at me and said, with a bit too much passion, ´´oh, don´t make me fall in love with you¨ Well, I wasn´t really expecting that, so I just said, well, you will definitely fall in love with the book of mormon...ha ha it was so awkward and hilarious. And in our next cita with him, I was again bearing testimony and he interrupted me to tell me that I look like Natasha Beddingfield...well, maybe it is good that I am leaving Benidorm so that he can concentrate on the lesson and not me. ha ha.
But anyway, I love you all so much! I loved that story of Holly talking to the lonely girl! GOOD JOB HOLLY!
