Dear family and friends,
This week we had a few great lessons. One of the less actives that we met with my first week here was having a really hard time with some personal life problems. After only one week her personality had completely changed. The lesson was great. She was smiling, laughing, and happy. She came to church for the first time in a long time this week. I love seeing the physical effect living the gospel can have. We also went out to a pueblo, over an hour in car, with the Bakes and RS president to visit a member and her husband, who isn't a member. They are very kind and we had a good time. The husband has never seemed really open to listening about our religion, but I could tell his heart was softened with the conversion story of the Relief Society president. I pray little by little we will be able to share with him.
Friday night we had a family home evening. We acted out the story of Nephi building the boat. It turned out to be pretty fun. We also have a ping pong table at the church which everyone loves.
We've done a lot more work with the branch list and area book. We have tried to be creative in thinking of new ways to find people here. Many things I did in Madrid just aren't effective here, but I'm excited about some ideas we have. I know as we work hard and follow the Spirit we will be able to find people who want to accept this wonderful message of the gospel of Jesus Christ!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
