May 5, 2014 - Jaén, Espana

Hello todos!

Well to start things off, I got a call from President on Saturday telling me that I am training again! I was pretty excited. I was hoping I would be able to train one more time before finishing. And here is the best part. There are three natives and one Italian. Gaaaahhhh, I am trying not to get my hopes up too high on the Italian, but it would be super cool. No matter what though, I´m sure she will be great. I´m very excited. I will go to pick her up in Málaga next Tuesday.

This week has been really good. Let´s see, we had a ¨Consecration Week.¨ It was being 100% obedient in everything. Just kicking it up a notch. It was a great week for us. One cool thing that happened was that we went to a member´s house named Juanita, and we invited our investigator Magdalena over. Well, Juanita got really sick really quickly and she couldn´t get out of bed. She asked for a blessing so we called two men from the Ward and they came over and gave her a blessing. Well, Magdalena got pretty emotional and asked if she could have a blessing of comfort, and it went great! She told them that she really wants to get baptized soon, it´s just that her husband won´t let her. So we are just praying that her husband´s heart will soften. It was a really cool experience though.

Yesterday was Mother´s Day here in Spain so we went and visited a couple of the sisters who are alone. It was fun for us because we didn´t want to bother people on a special day and they were looking for people to be with. It was definitely a win-win situation.

We had a cool lesson with our investigator Antonia as well. We have been teaching her a lot, but she has a past of kicking the missionaries out when they bring up baptism so we have been hesitant. Well, we got the guts up and asked her what was keeping her from it and she explained that even though she reads all about why, she just doesn´t see the necessity of being baptized. Then we asked why she thinks people get baptized other than for the reason of being able to live with God again and have the Holy Ghost. She said that she thinks it is so that they can become closer to Jesus Christ. We asked her if that is something she wants and she said of course it was. BAM! She still didn´t agree to it, but she definitely thought more about it. She wants to be closer to Christ and the next step to do that is baptism. It was a good lesson with her. 

Alright, well, that´s it for today. Happy Mother´s Day to all of you awesome moms! Have a wonderful week and thanks for everything!
