Another crazy week traveling Spain...


Well, we had a really crazy week this week! A crazy but good week. On Wednesday we went down to Málaga for President Clegg's final Zone Conference which was pretty sad but we had a good time and it was great to see them one last time. It'll be weird to switch presidents but that's just the way it is and I'm excited to meet President Deere!

We went to Málagaon Wednesday in the AVE and stayed the night in a piso with 8 Elders! It was crazy..the piso was PACKED! But it was a lot of fun as well. We came back in the train on Thursday night, stayed over in Puertollano, and then I came back here to Alcázar with Elder Nuñez to do splits. While we were out contacting we passed a gas station and a beer truck started pulling out....without closing the back doors!! So a ton of bottles fell out and shattered all over the place. The truck driver got out, looked at the mess, climbed into the truck and drove off. So we ran over and started sweeping it up until the city cleaners got there to help us. In the process we got to share the Gospel with a police officer, a garbage man, and 2 gas station attendants. And got to step in a whole lot of beer, haha. In the end we got it all cleaned up and headed off (and I think the gas station ladies fell in love with us...uh oh). Saturday morning I drove to Valdepeñas to pick up Elder Rodriguez and we finally got back to normal on Saturday afternoon. It all felt like a whirlwind! Whoo!

Well, that is all for this week. I love you all SO much! The Gospel is true and answers all the questions we have...we just have to look for them. It isn't easy to do what God requires but it is worth it and is is necessary. I'm so thankful for the Gospel and for the Spirit that we can feel when we live it!
