Happy Andalusia Day everyone! (Andalusia is the province of Spain that makes up the majority of our mission).
This last week was very, very busy. We have seen a lot of growth in our area and a lot of people that are progressing.
Lili is fantastic. She has been reading in the Book of Mormon consistently and is now in 2 Nephi. She is enjoying it, and has so many questions. Gospel Principles class got about ten times more interesting with her being there. For us at least. I think the teacher has started to become a little wary from all of the questions. Still, it is better that she is at least asking questions. She also is a better member than we are. She was in a slightly under occupied Sacrament meeting and she started to look around and said to us "where is everyone? All these people have made covenants with God to be here, and they aren't here! I haven't even made covenants with God and I am here!" We asked her to give a talk about it in sacrament meeting, but she said no. Also, no to baptism... For now. She is reading General Conference and is carefully dissecting each talk that we give her. She is fantastic. Please keep her in your prayers so that she decides to be baptized. She would be such a great member.
Brenda told us on Saturday that she is definitely getting baptized. Which is very, very exciting for us and for Jhizel. She has been reading in the Book of Mormon has had feelings and thoughts that this message has come right when she needed it. So, now it's just a matter of deciding on the day. She couldn't come to church this last week because she worked until 9:30 in the morning. Church starts at 10:30. But, she called us and told us that she was sorry, and confirmed our appointment for tonight. She's great. Also, speaking of Jhizel, she is doing fantastic and just received a calling as genealogy specialist. She is just the best. I can't wait till she goes on a mission.
The work is going very well. The members here find it cool that we have had two international missionaries here as my companions (as in not from America). They say it's good to at least have one gringo (American) so things aren't too exotic. Geez, thanks members.
Things really have been going well. We just got back from a pday in the Sierra. It was awesome. I am in love with Granada. I love this place and this work.
I can honestly say that each day is a great day to be a missionary.
Love you all,
