June 16, 2014 - Jaén, Espana

Hola todos!!!

Well, we are just getting back from The Alhambra here in Granada. Whew, what a day! We had to come late last night because we had to wake up at 5 this morning to hike up to the Alhambra. All the tickets are sold out but if you go early, you have a chance of getting in. So a big group of us did it. It was totally worth it, but my eyes are about to shut! Beautiful place though. Your mouth is open the whole time.

This past week has been great. Just plugging away. The Elders had a baptism and we did a musical number that was really cool. It´s called ¨Follow Me.¨ Four women sang and I played the piano. Amazing how much music can bring the Spirit into a baptism.

One of the coolest things I have to say about teaching is when you teach an athiest who feels the Spirit. Their entire countenance just changes and they can´t deny it. We taught one of the members in our ward and her son was there who is an athiest. It was the coolest thing in the world. When we were done, he wanted to know all about prayer and where to find it in the pamphlet. I loved the Spirit he felt.

Dani is doing well. We really want to involve more people his age in the lessons, but we don´t have all that many people in the Ward around the age of 20. It makes it a bit more difficult. But he is doing well. We are trying to teach him the importance of asking questions in prayer. He thanks God for things which is great but he won´t ask if this is the true church. We think he is scared to get an answer because then he really does have to act. We´ll see how it goes this week.

Well everyone, sorry i have to cut this one short. Our day has been full today and we have to catch a bus ride back to Jaén. Love you all and thanks for everything!!!!
