Y cuando nuestros corazones se hallaban desanimados, y estábamos a punto de regresar, he aquí, el Señor nos consoló, y dijo: Id entre vuestros hermanos los lamanitas, y sufrid con paciencia vuestras affliciones, y os daré el éxito (Alma 26:27).

Now when our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, and said: Go amongst thy brethren, the Lamanites, and bear with patience thine afflictions, and I will give unto you success (Alma 26:27).

Baptism and Transfers Week!

Hey everybody, so one transfer is done! And I am still in Vic!! No surprise, you are usually kept in the same place for your training. But all is well! Here is a photo of our District! There are only six of us but we cover a wide area. There is Elder García, our District Leader from Alicante, who is in the back, and Elder Davidson his companion. Then Elder Miller and I and Hermanas Durham and Hamson. We decided to do a picture just in case anybody got switched, and sad times, Elder García is now in L´Hospitalet as District Leader!! He will surely be missed...but now Elder Miller is District Leader AND training haha! good times. 

This week I also got a package from my Abuelo (grandfather) in Granada! Thank you so much to him and mi tia (my aunt) y primo (cousin) that are there :) It had chorizo, salami, good queso, palmeras, chocolate, atún, just a lot of great things!!! Thank you so much!!!! As you can see, I am pretty shocked!

I also got a new bed that a missionary couple brought along with my package, letters and supplies, because for the past six weeks I have been sleeping in a bed that was shaped like the letter V, so I was stuck in one position all night long. So it is nice to have a good bed now!

And finally…WE HAD A BAPTISM!!!! Wooooooo! A surprise one too! She came to us half-way into the week and decided to push her baptism date closer since her father was in town! So we scrambled and hurried to get everything set up, and after dealing with time constraints and last minute emergencies, we finally pulled it off! Her name is Shirley, from Colombia, and she was baptized by Abel from Ecuador. It was such a great experience!!! Someone that you taught and see grow in the Gospel finally taking that next step into happiness!! The Lord provides a way for everything :)

Also we will be watching General Conference at the Stake Center in Barcelona next weekend!

But overall, this week has been really busy! It is spring now and we have had rain for almost every day and people are not in the mood to really talk when it is raining. But we will push forward! Thank you so much everybody!!!!  Love you all!!!!
