Family and friends,
I don't even know exactly where to start, but it seems like a lot has happened this week. It started as a pretty normal week- some pretty rough times and miracles all in the same day. Hermana Hill and I spent lots of time trying to find some new investigators that would progress. Our most creative activity was using her artistic talent and using chalk in the park to draw superman and Christ and strike up conversations with people then ask what superheroes and Christ have in common. Some had to really think and some immediately said they both save people. It was a fun activity. We also taught the special sabbath day devotional to a few other members and I felt the spirit strong. I think two of those lessons were some of my spiritual highlights from the whole week.
On Friday we had an awesome 1st annual Styrofoam Derby activity with the branch. It took quite a bit of preparation, but was completely worth it. There was a great turn out and the branch had a blast.
Everyone took good care of me on my bday Saturday. Hermana Hill woke up in the middle of the night to decorate the piso with balloons and birthday signs. Members called. The Bakes made dinner and a birthday cake for me. And after dinner we found out about transfers. Everyone stayed, but me. I'm headed to Leganés, a small town to the southwest of Madrid. My new companion will be Hermana Smith. I already miss Santiago and the people. A short 12 weeks didn't seem like enough. And to realize I have my 11 more weeks in Leganés then home is even more crazy. I'm excited to get to know and love more people here in Spain!
I hope you all have a wonderful week. Love you!
