Conference Week

I love conference week. It´s like a little battery charger for the next six months. We had the opportunity to watch it here in the office. We invited Martins and his family. They came and really enjoyed conference. They really are the best. When Martins walked in, one of the first things that he asked was, ¨Will Thomas S. Monson be speaking today?" They are really just a fantastic family. Yesterday, while we were at their house. Josefina prepared a typical dish from Nigeria, which is fried fish, cleaned, but with everything else on it. I just could not get myself to eat the eyes, but it was really, really good. They are progressing really well. We are talking about the temple in every lesson that we have with them so that they always have it in their mind. 

We have also been working with a Spanish couple that contacted us on the street. Their names are Pili and José. I don´t know if I have mentioned them before. They are progressing pretty well. We are trying to work with them so that they are able to come to church for the entire time. José has got a really interesting story. He actually found the book of Mormon in a library and has studied with some Elders in Málaga. We have been teaching them, and they both have a big desire to be baptized.

It´s been a really good week. We were bringing in a group of missionaries for residency, and when they got here the police station was closed! It was crazy. Even more crazy, Elder Gantner had driven the van all the way out to Alicante to pick them up. When they got here, we decided to keep all of the missionaries in Fuengirola, so we had about seven companionships working in our city at one time. It was pretty amazing. Elders Gantner and Fife took them back to Alicante, and I got to stay here in Fuengirola with one of the missionaries from Malaga.

We have been able to see a lot of miracles this past week. A lot of opportunities to find people, even when we don´t have a lot of time. I may not be here in Fuengirola next week, so if I don´t email until next Monday, that would be why. The expected transfer date for me is this Wednesday, but I don´t know. President may keep me here in Fuengirola for a while more. We will see. I love it here. It´s a great city and we have been able to see a lot of miracles. It´s places like this that make it a great day to be a missionary. 

Love you all,
Elder Weenig
