Well, it's been a crazy and good week. So, Monday, we had all the missionaries in the islands here in Las Palmas.
started intercambios. Monday night I was with Hermana Finch and we were with Hermana Pack. All of our lessons failed, so we went out to contact. It was fun! We had a bunch of street lessons. On Tuesday, we had our zone conference. It was good. We talked about the importance of the message of the restoration and also the importance of working
with menos activos. It was really great! Our stake president talked about how each week the missionaries will be given 5 names of menos activos in the ward to work with. And when the people come back to church or don't want more contact, they are taken off our list of 5 names and they get replaced with other menos activos. There is a little more to it than that, but I think it's a great program. I'm excited for it! After, we finished intercambios and I was with Hermana Turina. Literally no one wanted to talk to us. We stopped every person who walked by and every single one said no. But anyway, we finally got one person to listen and she listened to all of the restoration and then scheduled another lesson with us. It was fun with her. She's a sweetheart! I love her! Anyway, Hermana Finch changed their tickets and we didn't know, so our intercambios were cut short. It is teaching me patience and love.
D accepted a baptismal date for the 26th of September! He's a little nervous but I think he'll be more than ready. Anyway, he's great, as usual.
L. is not doing too well. She is going through a lot of personal things, unfortunately it's a lot of things she can only work out for herself. What we're trying to do is just make sure our lessons and
Sundays are really good spiritual experiences for her so that it's like a break from her life and problems. [Please pray for them]
M. is so great. We passed by to see her and met with her and her husband. It was sooooo good! Sad thing, the husband just left for Brazil for 3 months, but before we ended the lesson, they gave us a reference. Then, Sunday, M. brought another friend to church! She's so great! Also, a member named L. who is from Brazil brought a friend and gave us his reference. So we are now teaching 4
brazilians... It's great!
Anyway, things are fantastic here and I absolutely love love love my companion!transfer. This week I'll be doing intercambios with Hermana Judd and next week, we will be going to Madrid for Concilio in the mission home and then to Tenerife for intercambios with the Hermanas from Santa Cruz
