A Coruña, Tower of Hercules

The Tower of Hercules and Me!
Hey Family!

We had a great week this week. We worked really hard to keep our usual lesson total and we did it even though we had some time taken out of the work!

Monday, we went to A Coruña for a zone conference. Monday we went and ate, played soccer then went to the Tower of Hercules. Then went to the hotel and showered and then met at the church to watch Ephraim's Rescue. It was really good. Then on Tuesday we had the zone conference. It was really good. Talked a lot about desires and D&C chapter 4 (D&C 4). then we ate pizza. but we didn't get back to Lugo until 8 so that was rough but the next few days we really went to work!

We had 5 or more lessons each day to help us out with the missed work. It helped a lot that it was Elder Gorge's birthday. People wanted to meet and made us cake and stuff. We met with one of our less actives yesterday and he made a cake then he smashed Elder Gorge's face in it. Super fun and super good cake! We got so fat yesterday. It didn't help that before that appointment we were with Margarita and her son (not drunk this time) but we ate a ton and more cake cuz it was her son's birthday too! We actually had a really good chance to teach him and his girlfriend. They had a lot of really good questions. One of them lives in another city in Galicia though. But there are good missionaries there too. We are also starting to teach a friend of the less active. He was there the other day for lunch and so we were able to share a message and he was there yesterday.
So good to see the Ocean and beaches!

We were finally able to meet with Joana again. She's doing really well, still hasn't come to church because of work and vacation situations. But she is reading so that's good. We taught her the Plan of Salvation this week and she really liked it. We invited her to be baptized again and she can't get over the fact of why she needs to be baptized again in this church. We went over authority again and she's understanding it more. We invited her to specificly pray about Joseph Smith and baptism. She's in Vigo right now so hopefully things will have gone well with that.

Luis is still doing pretty well. He still hasn't come to church. Each week same story. But he likes when we come over, when we see him in the street, and he invites us over. We almost ate soup with him yesterday but we were seriously too full.

We were also able to meet with the man that came to church last week, Edimicio. He is a super good guy has met with missionaries for 2 years remembers the doctrine super well, expecially the Plan of Salvation he had completly memorized. Super cool! His only problem is the Apostasy. He believes it fell but never completely. He also believes that there are more than 1 true church. We shared some scriptures from the Bible and invited him to pray about it. He came to church again this Sunday so he's giving it a try again.

Hope everyone had a good week. We're still just doing great up here. Have a good week and I love you all!
