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).

The beginning of summer

Hey everyone! 

 A snake outside our window apartment! Holaaaaaa!

Another week has come creeping up! This past week here has been a lot of traveling to pueblos more than anything, as the members in these places need our help as well and this week we are planning on visiting some other pueblos. We are writing on Tuesday because we went to La Rápita yesterday, and worked there for most of the day with the members since it was one of their days off so we switched our preparation day to Tuesday for the week. 

 Last Wednesday having lunch at Ramona's home, a member from Tortosa. 
Yummy food!

We also had Zone Conference this week in L´Hospitalet and Pte. Pace talked about the importance of the sacrament and how crucial it is to follow the prophet. I loved it, he said that we need to attend church every week to take the sacrament, and that that is the center of activity versus inactivity.  An interesting statistic is that if a male goes on a mission versus not going on a mission, he will have 18-20 full time tithe payers within 3 generations while he who did not serve a mission will have 8. What a huge difference! 

Check out some more pictures from the Saturday, June 20 conference from the Barcelona mission blog at:  http://spainbarcelonamission.blogspot.com/

On Saturday, we saw the wedding of one of our investigators, Laura, and it was really good! The problem is that she is now moving to Suiza, but at least she is happy! Felicidades!!! 

We are also working more with the members, because the way that things are playing out in Tortosa, people are recognizing who we are and there are other church organizations that are making it harder for us to do our job, but with the members, we are conquering these barriers :)

The scripture for this week is in Salmos 73:26, where everything might fall, but God still stands firm. Love you all!!!

And Happy Father´s day to the best dad in the world, Shane Sadler!!! Thanks for being a great dad, Papá!! Love you!!! (Father's day in the U.S. is the third Sunday of June).
