December 2, 2013 - Dos Hermanas, Espana

Hola todos!!!!

Well, my comps and I decided that the Lord really does love us. Thanksgiving was THE BEST!!!! Out of all of Spain, we just so happen to be in one of the two wards where there is a military base which means there are American families. Which also means that we got invited over to a real Thanksgiving feast! We went to a couple, Laura and Scotts´ house. They have a cute little girl Alana and we had all the wonderful Thanksgiving food. Plus Laura even got stuff for gingerbread houses and we made those!!! I couldn´t believe it. It was the best thing ever. That was the biggest tender mercy ever. So it was a fantastic Thanksgiving.

We have two less actives that are miracles. They have been inactive for a very long time but are starting to come back! One is Gloria and the other is Manuel. Manuel is starting to get into genealogy and it has really sparked his testimony. He is doing whatever he can to get to the temple now. It is the most amazing change to see in him after being so far away for so long. He has a way to go, but like I said, he is doing whatever he can to get to the temple for his family. He is a real inspiration. Then there is Gloria who everyone says is impossible. She is definitely pretty hard to get through but just recently, she told us that she wants to come back and that she wants us to teach her 13 year old son! We are seeing big time miracles with her too. Gosh, it is so cool to see these people change. They begin to remember what the gospel did for them in their lives and once they get a little taste of it again, they will do whatever it takes to get it all back. So cool to be a part of.

The family is doing well. We are moving into talking about the temple with them. They think that baptism is this huge step to take and while it is a big step, it is not the final one. We want them to focus on the temple and make that the goal so that they see that baptism is just a step they have to take to get to the big goal. We are excited.

It is now officially Christmas!!!! I´m so excited! All the lights are up here and we are singing Christmas everyday. The trio is going great. We all have a lot of fun together and are working hard. Everything is awesome! Alright, well we have to jet to Málaga for a meeting so thanks everyone for everything and hope you all ate a lot of pie! Love you all and thanks for everything!
