A less active member named Aldo gave me this skateboard deck! I almost cried and lets just say I had a great 30 minutes of exercise the next morning.
The Rama de Fuenlabrada put on a birthday party for all those who had birthdays during October and November. We rocked it.
Just an awesome picture of the recent convert Andrew. Looking good on Sunday.
Well its been a while!!
Really sorry about last week. Lets just say Elder Echegaray made us late. Haha he came in town so we had lunch with him and Ana but we had to go take him back to his area so its his fault!
Well I'll just recap last week quickly and then get on to this week.
It was a pretty great week actually and Elder Beuden and I are working very hard together. He has a ton of ideas which is great because usually I have none haha. We had a great lesson with Rosa on Tuesday and she started crying while bearing her testimony on Jesus Christ and during the closing prayer. I am so thankful for the power the Spirit has to bear witness of the truth of the things we teach. Wednesday we had district meeting which went well and we got to finally meet with the Branch President and discuss some important things. Thursday we had the Halloween party which actually turned out really great! Maxwell, an investigator, came and we had a ton of fun. The pres was a little crazy haha but it was great. Friday was our day of miracles. We read in Preach My Gospel about family history work and we were talking about how great it would be to have someone to help us do it. We take out the ward list and a name catches my eye so we visit him. Turns out his name is Jesus Conde and he is a family history specialist. Whaaaaaaaat?!? Yeah that was awesome. Then at 5 we were waiting for the bus which was like 15 minutes late. Heavenly Father made it late because I got a call from Juan Romera, who lives with Hermana Josephina, telling me that we needed to come to give Josephina a blessing because she was in serious pain and could not even get up from her bed. During the blessing, I felt impressed to bless her that she will get up and walk. Just like the John Tanner video, she stood up and walked. Within ten minutes, she was walking around and feeling much better. I know that this church is true. Saturday was great and we met with some members! And then on Sunday everyone cancelled on us and we got some paperwork and other plans done.
Well that week was amazing but on to last week!
Monday was great and we ate with Ana and Elder Echegaray came. After, we had a lesson with Maxwell which was a little difficult but it turned out decent at the end.
Tuesday we had lunch with Andrew and a lesson with Aldo, which was when he gave me that skateboard deck! After we had a great lesson with Radhames and lets say that Elder Beuden is obsessed with him because they both love baseball. Their bond is wonderful!
Wednesday we had Zone Training Meeting in Mostoles which went well and I learned a TON. After we met with Hermana Purificacion who is doing good! We ended the night teaching a new investigator named Edgar who is really interested!
Thursday we planned the week of course which went great and then basically everyone cancelled on us so we started working on our mission board! (pictures to come)
Friday we had intercambios and I was with Elder Gillam here in Fuenla and it was good! We had some good lessons and he had a lot of good advice to share.
Saturday we continued to work on the missionary board which is a work of art for two 19 year old kids. Then we had the birthday party at 7 which was wonderful and really fun! Juan Romera loved it haha
Sunday was great! Church was really good and especially amazing because we had the primary program! We have a big primary here actually and it was wonderful. Ana came too and she enjoyed it. After we had lunch with the Camacho's and had a lesson with an old investigator named Bright. Mike came with us because they are both Nigerian and he made the lesson. We tried to visit some less active members but no one was home.
Today has been great! We built a table out of some scraps of wood and unused desks we found. I'll send some pictures when I take some and we are gunna try to convert it into a ping pong table for some medio dia fun!
The mission is amazing and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I know that this church is true and that the Church of Jesus Christ really has been restored on the earth again. I love you all so much and know that I am praying for you!
