September 8, 2014 - Jaén, Espana

Hello todos!

Another great week here in the beautiful city of Jaén. Feeling more and more like a home Ward every week. This week we had to help the Elders a lot with moving. They are moving apartments and well, they are boys and have no idea how to properly clean or organize a new apartment so we had to add some womanly touch.

We had a great Family Home Evening with Antonia in the house of Manolo and Elisa. I´ll tell you what, this woman is going to get baptized soon. I haven´t talked about her in a while but she is the one whose husband got baptized 30 years ago and she has been investigating on and off ever since. Well about a month back, we got her to get into the habit of reading the Book of Mormon with her husband and her daughter, who is also baptized, as a family and then pray afterward all together. You wouldn´t believe the difference. She has been coming to church every week and participating in the lessons. It is incredible progress. In the Family Home Evening, we talked about eternal families and the temple and we invited her to prepare to go to the temple. Of course baptism came up, but we more focused on how her goal should be going to the temple to be with her family and how baptism is just a part of getting to the temple. It was a great lesson. She is close. I haven´t seen her this close yet so we are very excited. The day they go to the temple as a family and get sealed will be a party in the heavens!

Dani is going well too. He comes to almost all the activities including ones with the Stake and is getting to know a lot more young people in the church. He is doing awesome.

This week we have splits with the Sister Training Leaders, and guess who is coming to Jaén to be with me!!! Hermana Cameron!!!! Once again we can be together. I haven´t really seen her and talked to her for a year ever since I was training her in Elche so we are beyond excited to work together again for two days.

I have to give a talk next week in church again. I just gave one I feel like! Time goes too fast. Well that´s about it for this week. Hope everyone is doing well and I love and appreciate you all! Thanks for everything!
