Well, another great week here in Algeciras! As always :)
First, a funny story from the streets of Spain. On Friday we were walking towards home and we saw a drunk guy that is always sitting on the street below our piso. On Friday I guess he decided to have a good night, though, and was practicing his Matador skills....with his t'shirt and all the cars driving by! It was insane. Luckily we saw him this morning (and not splattered on the road). As funny as it was, it is sad seeing people like that....they are all over here. Just completely out of their minds, really, and always drunk.
So this week the whole mission has been focusing on recommitting to reach our baptism goal for the year. We have all been working hard and exercising faith to be sure we reach it...and surpass it! Yesterday we all fasted for the goal and that we could find people to teach. After mediodia, Elder Lignell and I were just absolutely dead. I honestly don't think I've ever been so tired in my entire life. We started heading for an investigator's house to try to find him. His name is Artemio - he is from Paraguay and lives with his wife, his son and daughter-in-law, and his 2 grandsons. After finally making it to his house, we were able to teach not just him, but the entire family! It was a great lesson. It was just an example to me of how we have adversity in our lives, but if we can push through it there is always a reward at the end. We talk to a lot of people with a lot of trials, but like it says in Doctrine and Covenants, all these trials will be but a short moment and then we will receive all that the Father has and we will see that they are all for our good.
I love you all! The church is true! Read the Book of Mormon!!!!
