Pretty sure here in Spain no one celebrates pioneer Day. But all of us American Missionaries will be celebrating it by a huge game of...VOLLEYBALL!!! Yea, I will finally be able to play!! Next week, oh yea.
So, we have had to postpone some of the baptisms because our investigators need to understand the importance of coming to church. But they are amazing and have the desires, so they will come!
My new companion is Hermana Quintana, from Bolivia. She is a lot of fun. I totally got to do intercambios with Hermana Bennion this week!! WE loved it! WE never thought that we would get to serve together. But luckily we are buds with the ayudante, and since our areas are super close, we let him know that we wanted to do intercambios. It was great. We were just as unified as we were in the MTC, but now we can both speak spanish and actually ahve teaching skills, ha ha.
I am trying to think of what happened this week. Umm, it was kind of a slow week. This area is great, but so up and down up and down with emotions and investigators.
I was thinking a lot this week about the ministry of our Savior, and how many times he was sad at the lack of faith on the part of the people. I just can´t comprehend the love that He has for us. He saw the unbelief and wickedness of the world, He experienced it, but He still atoned and suffered for us. Nothing was going to stop Him from doing it, as hard as it was, if it was the Father´s will, He would do it. He lived a perfect life, and then he felt the sins of everyone else. There is no way that we can repay Him. All He and our Heavenly Father ask, is that we keep the commandments. That we love one another. Honestly, we have no right to look down upon others. We have to forgive. If we are expecting mercy, we better be more than willing to show forgiveness to others. We are all sinners, none of us can make it back to our Heavenly Father without Jesus Christ.
Anway, my testimony of our Savior has just grown so much while being on the mission.
I love you all so much! Thanks for the pictures and video of the basement. I love you!!!
