The Weeks Fly By

The weeks fly by.

They told us in the MTC that the days feel like weeks and the weeks like days. At the beginning, I won't lie, I didn't necessarily believe it. But as the time has gone by, I've come to realize that it's very true. The time flies by. There really is so much to do, and so little time to do it. But things have been going very well.

Gabriela was confirmed yesterday, which was a great experience. She told us that during the confirmation, she felt like it wasn't our hands that were on top of her head. She felt as though it were someone else. She couldn't explain exactly how she felt, but she knew that it was something special. Very cool.

Also, this last week, we had an appointment with Lili, and at the end, we were pretty worried that we were losing her. Fortunately, at our next appointment, she told us that there really isn't a reason for her not to get baptized. She said her sister says that she is weird just like the Mormons so she was basically born to be Mormon. She is so close to accepting to be baptized. Please keep her in your prayers. She is awesome, and we hope she will commit to be baptized this month.

What a crazy week. It's always crazy to be working in Spain during Semana Santa (Holy Week). During the week, a lot of people come out and march in processions. It usually slows down the work. However, we are actually seeing a good amount of success. This week we are going to work even harder. The work is growing. I feel like we are going to see a few more baptisms in these upcoming weeks. We have a number of investigators that are progressing, but we are just working to help them overcome a few doubts.

I love being a missionary. It's the best thing that anyone could do. I would recommend it to everyone. So if you are not currently a missionary, share a little bit of the Easter spirit, see the Hallelujah video, and give some food to the missionaries. I can promise you they will appreciate it.

Thanks so much for all your support. I love you all.

It's a great day to be a missionary.
