COLD!!! again???

Hey family,

I don't really know what happened with the beautiful weather we had but this week it took a turn for the worse. This week it's 35-40 degrees and rain and last week it was 80 degrees and short sleeves but its all good. It was cool on the way back from Segovia today. It was snowing!! A lot the cars were covered. 
Anyways, things are going really well here! Mara is still doing awesome. We have been trying to meet with her mom for forever. She always said she didn't have time but we know she is 100% free on Sundays. So we got a good group of members to come with us and we surprise visited them. It worked! The mom sat down with us and we were able to share the restoration with her to help her understand why her daughter wants to be baptized. The mom just had a lot of doubts and questions. We feel like she was afraid to let her daughter do something she didn't understand so we are finally going to be able to meet with her more.

Franz and Scarlet are doing really well also. They are progressing!!! They read and are praying so we are super happy. We were able to teach the plan of salvation and it turned out really well. They just want to know the truth.

Other than that, we did a lot of contacting and trying to meet with new investigators. But they never showed up so we are still trying to find news. Elder Hawks was on intercambios and went and visited one of our investigators that has not been progressing and they were having a drop talk basically. See if they were willing to start progressing. They started talking because the brother is a member and will be sealed in the temple. They asked if they could go and he had to say no. But if they started doing the things they need to, one day they could go in as a family. They are starting to progress more.

Things are going pretty well here. We just need to find some new investigators. But things are going well. Hope everyone has a great week. Love you!!!

  1. Loved Segovia. Served there for a few months. We lived in the shadow of the aqueduct. The people in Segovia are absolutely wonderful, and the little branch there was "fun." Great pictures, Elder Stevenson! --Craig
