Well this week was well, Easter was great. We didnt do anything really too special. Elder Vickery had some egg painting supplies so we painted eggs in the chapel with some ward members so that was fun and I liked it, it made me remember of the good old days back home. But other than that we just had normal visits and talked a lot about the real meaning of easter and the church came out with this great video! we showed it everytime we were at someones house and everyone just loves it. I think it is done just so well and it brings the spirit so strong.
this is the video, many of oyu have probably seen it but its the best.
So we did that and we did a lot of walking. We dont have too much going on because the people taht we used to teach a lot, have become really busy and hard to meet with so we have to meet with them less which means we need to find new people to teach in the other time. So we have a list of all the people taht have received missionaries before and people that are members that dont come to church anymore and we have been passing by them and talking to people in the street. So we shall see how that goes, so far we havent had too much success but it always takes a while of good hard work to really see the good that comes out of it. I have really learned that here, i mean we can talk to everybody in our path for a week and no one will want anything. but then some crazy miracle will allow one of our investigators to meet with us more, or to really have a question answered and boom. So although walking around and talking to people doesnt always equal instant success, miracles come from the work we put in.
Oh this week im going to barcelona to go to court! hahaha im super excited, when i was there a few weeks ago someone tried to rob my bags when i was eating and an undercover cop caught him. and so now i have to go to court to testify or something that there were bags and jsut say what my story is which is really nothing, some cop came up to me and said are these your bags and i said yes and then he said well you were almost robbed, and i was like oh shoot and now im going to court. thats the life of spain i guess. But i always love going to barcelona, although it will suck not being in the our area for a day or 2. Wish me luck in the spanish court system. Im going to have a translator though!! im stoked, because i dont think i could understand all the fancy law terms in spanish.
Well i love easter and i love the feelings that come from easter. Miracles still exist. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that he really died for us and took his life back, and because of him we will always have a second chance. I know that is true and it brings me an unmeasurable amount of happiness. I know that he loves us and that if we just try and learn of him and his love we will be blessed more than we can explain. I love him and am so grateful for him, ill never be able to thank him enough, but i can live happily using his atonement as much as possible to show my gratitude.
I love you all and thank you all for your support and your love. I know that life is so great and i am so excited to live and live and live. All thanks to him.
I love you,
thats my desk, isnt it fun
and thats parade that they do here for easter, super scary no?
