Another good week, P-day at Segovia

Segovia, Spain

Hola Familia!

This has been a very good week! but crazy!


The beginning of the week was normal. We have just been meeting with our investigators and less active members, and contacting old investigators because other missionaries would take trips out here. While doing that we were able to find a lady just through asking what street it was. We are teaching her again today. She is a great person and has two kids, so that will be nice.


We also started teaching Miguel's kids. They are nine year old twins and remind me of Spanish Jakob and Hyrums. They are super cool kids! Miguel is doing well. We teach him more and more and are praying for a baptismal date!! He is so prepared! 

Then I went on companion exchanges and because of the living/travel situation, it was for 3 days. I was with Elder Weeks, who was in my district at the MTC, it was so fun having two new guys together! It went really well though. We started out with a food appointment, a 10 year old kid was there and we were able to teach him. Then 2 of the Elders in our ward had a baptism. We were helping them out by printing the programs, and we were running a little late. We got a call that President Jackson is there so we take off in a full sprint through the streets of Madrid all the way from the PWC building to the chapel like 2 miles away! But we made good time and got the baptism started. Super crazy!
The next day, we played soccer with investigators and that was super fun but then it starts pouring rain and hasn't stopped for the past three days! Good thing I at least have a sweater and umbrella!

Then, I went back to Majadahonda and we did a lot of contacting. Apparently people don't think we will talk to them if they yell "¡Hola Mormones!" but then they end up getting taught a lesson. It's pretty fun. Also on the bus, there was a man who asked what we were doing in Spain and so we told him that we teach people about our religion. He said, "Well teach me then." We went through an entire lesson. He just looked at us and said, "You don't really believe that." I bore my testimony as hard as I could in my bad Spanish and everything changed. We got his info but he was only visiting Majadahonda. But still a really cool experience.

Today, we went out to Segovia which is this super sick town on the other side of the mountains. They have castles and this super huge cathedral! We even got to do a tour of the castle. That was super sick! Google it, I would send pictures but once again no card reader on this computer.
Alcazar Castle
This week should be nice. We go to the temple on Wednesday and then this week end is General Conference! Should be a great week! But after conference we have to change our schedule.   :(    So with the culture of Spain, we wake up at 7:30 and go to bed at 11:30 during the summer but now we have to get up 30 minutes earlier. But its all good. Have a great week. I love you all and enjoy conference!
