Family and Friends,
Not too much time this week but I just wanted to jot down the most important things that have happened this week.
First of all, today we went to a place called Monkey Park in the south end of Tenerife. A large gorilla definitely spit a mouthful of water at me from behind the gate. Sneaky monkey.
This week, we focused it a little bit more on finding some new investigators. And we had some success! We found 4 news this week which was awesome and they all have a great amount of potential! We are really excited to keep teaching them and help them come closer to Jesus Christ.
Maria Fernanda is doing good and gets one step closer to baptism every time we teach her. We ate at her house with her sister Gabriela and their parents who just looove missionaries. We call their mom, mama Cubana. She's the best.
We also had a cool experience with a lady named Olga. She's a friend of a member here who has come to church twice but I still haven't taught her yet. On Sunday, her member friend told her about blessings of the priesthood and she asked us if she could receive one. We were more than willing of course and so with the help of another member we gave her a blessing of comfort. I was the one speaking and it was amazing to feel impressions of things that I needed to say while blessing her. The words that I said literally were not words that I would have normally used and it was amazing to see how the Spirit was able to guid me in that situation.
Life is great down here in the Canary Islands and I am just trying to do my best to work hard and live it up while I still can. Thank you all for the birthday wishes and also all of the comments on my Facebook wall (my mom told me!). I love you all so much and I am so grateful for your support in this most important work that we have to accomplish.
