Seasons Changing...

¡Buenos Días!

It is starting to get colder around here. Usually we are chilly in the morning and we have had to shut all the windows in the piso for the first time. It is definitely a welcome change from the unbearable heat. It is supposed to get hot again this week, we have heard, but hopefully that will be the last of it until next summer!!

So this week we had to travel again...hopefully the last time this transfer. While Elder Ferguson went to Fuengirola for a District Leader meeting, I went to Murcia and did splits with Elder Corradi. It was definitely an interesting few days - he is from France and their area has a car (that we DROVE everywhere in!!!) to name a few things. Like always, it is good to be back in our area finally and be working!

Last week I think I mentioned we found a few new families. Yesterday one of them came to church and they are accepting the lessons really well. We are hoping to see them get baptized in early November! We have been blessed to be able to find a lot of new investigators recently and are meeting with them a lot. We have a lessons on Wednesday with a Spanish family and are meeting with another Bolivian lady who lives with some older people she cares for. They have alzheimers and sometimes come out to talk to us during the lessons...needless to say it gets pretty interesting, haha. This week we'll finally have a full week of work here, so they should all be progressing a lot very quickly.

I attached 2 pictures, finally. Both are from Algeciras. The first is me with our Nigerian investigators, and the second pretty well sums up what the city looks like. Huércal-Overa is quite a bit prettier :)

Elder Ferguson and I have been listening to a series of lectures given by Truman G. Madsen about Joseph Smith this week. They are incredible and have really strengthened my testimony of the Prophet of our dispensation. There is no way Joseph Smith was not called of God to restore the Church of Jesus Christ. Saying that he did not do what he did is completely against reason if any real study of his life, character, and work is pursued. I am so thankful for the Restored Gospel we have and for the blessing it is in my life. The Book of Mormon is true and living proof of the Prophet Joseph Smith. The Lord's arm of mercy is outstretched to every one of us - there are NO exceptions to that. I hope that we all have the courage and faith to partake of his love.

I love you all!
