Hey Family! 

Madrid has been really warm lately only like 55 degrees. Not even bad and so we thought winter would be done soon. Well the groundhog didn't see his shadow here today. Yesterday the temperatures dropped and today it was snowing so there goes that, but things are still going well!

This week was a really good week. We were just preparing Christian for baptism and he is sooo ready. We took him to the bishop's house for lunch on Friday and he was able to get the baptismal clothing there. Then saturday morning we had the interview and of course all went well. He is really excited and ready for this Saturday.

We are also working really hard with German. He has serious desires to get baptized. He is going to do the baptismal service in London because that's where his fiancee lives. But we get to do all the teaching and we will confirm him here. He is so prepared understands well and is doing the things he needs to. He is even being a missionary. He has invited his friends to meet with us. In fact we are teaching one, his name is Jhonny. So all is going really well here.

We had a good week getting along with the bishopric. We really won their trust. It's just before we got here, the missionaries were pretty disobidient and so the members had zero trust when we got here. Well this week we met with one of the counselors and he made us a great paella. And just fell in love with us! We now have weekly Spanish food because he loves us so much. Then we also helped the second counselor move pisos. The new one is on the fifth floor without an elevator. My legs are still sore and my stomach still full.

So there is a lot of progression in this ward! The members are doing so well in fact this week, we were able to get 5 member references. It's really helping with the work here. 

On Friday, we were also able to do 2 baptismal interviews for another ward. It was really cool. It was a mother and her daughter who turns 8 tomorrow. Both are Cubans which is really cool because in their country there is zero religious freedom. They are really excited.

Well, I hope you all had a great week. I will let you know next week how the baptism goes!!
