well here we are! its coming to an end. It feels weird and strange to think about. I swear i was just starting in madrid! But here i am. Sorry i didn’t write earlier in the week. I was in barcelona for my last few days and we were so busy with visiting some people i met while serving there and i was able to go out and work with my old companion Elder Vickery! He was one of my absolute favorites as well! So that was a great blessing.
Leaving Huesca was hard. we were truly a family there. I mean there was only like 5 of us so it wasn’t even bigger than my family but that just means we would be even closer! Saying goodbye was hard. But ill see everyone again someday.
I have no idea what i am feeling right now. IM so happy to be going home. But I’m so sad that its over. having dinner with the other missionaries leaving last night was so weird. the mixture of emotion was intense. There were so many tears and incredible testimonies and stories shared and the overall excitement of seeing loved ones was all around. But as we sang our last hymn together in the mission home, not a single one of us wasn’t teary eyed and sniffling up. It was truly an incredible night and few days here in spain
It’s all true. Jesus Christ lives and died for us. He loves us and guides us through prophet of God. Pray works. God listens to every prayer and knows us all perfectly!!! The Book of Mormon is true. Just have to read it and pray about it. I know it’s true.
I love you and can’t wait to see you!!!!
Love elder guapisimo santore
hey how are we doing! I guess i will see you all next week!! crazy stuff!
well great week! easter was a blast and here in huesca there was parades and big celebrations. Its a little strange the way they celebrate because all the people are dressed up in costumes which for americans look a bit like kkk suits but i think they were started up here i guess before any of that occurred. Look up Semana Santa in google images and you will see what i mean haha.
Conference was amazing! I was only able to see the saturday sessions and that was awesome! it was the first time in my mission that i had to watch it in spanish! it was weird. haha funny, my last one and i hadnt watched in spanish my whole mission! i loved the talk by Elder Bednar about fear, it made me feel super good and i loved it!
Sorry im writing rreally fast, because we went to a castle and got back late! So i will write the better last email next week!
I love you all! God lives! He loves us! I know it and i feel it everyday!
have a graet week!
Feeling good and happy entering into another week here in Huesca. Life has been great here. We went down to zaragoza yesterday and had branch conference with the stake leaders. It was a fantastic feeling to be back in a chapel with more than 100 members to sit with and talk to. It felt like a weird dream being at a “normal” church setting again. I cant imagine what it will be like in the States.
Cool little miracle of the week was we were walking and talking to some people, like usual. And then a man stopped us and acted as if he knew me from way back when. turns out he met with the missionaries before in huesca and thought i was one of them. Well we taught him a little but and he wanted to meet with us more. we were talking for hours with people who didnt want anything and then he talked to us and wanted us to visit him. Its become an amusing thing seeing how hard work really does pay off and recognizing little blessings along the way.
I love you all! thanks for the love and the support!
ALSO HAPPY EASTER!
he lives! Im so grateful! What a beautiful truth we have!
