Well last night was awesome. Got to skype the fam and most importantly my wonderful mother(: fastest 41 minutes of my life. Happy Mother's Day to all!(:
|Say hi to Momma Tonna everyone!|
Howdy y'all. I couldn't think of what we did this week so my subject line is what happened today. 'Twas a fun PDay. Went to downtown Madrid and hung out with my man Elder Reese whom I haven't seen in 3 months so that was a good time. We also turned the corner and saw a Lamborghini Hurricane just chillin. Matte Black and I almost died, photos to be attached, oh Madrid...
Also it's my neither birthday today, and Austin Halls on Thursday I believe so make sure to shoot him an email. Well this last week was super slow at first because we weren't able to meet with any of our actual investigators until Friday. But Thursday we had a lesson with this Spanish guy. After the lesson I realized that was my first lesson with somebody from Spain on my mission. I'm pushing 9 months and just had my first lesson with a Spaniard. I'm not even joking. But, He actually showed up! So that alone was the miracle of the night. We taught him the restoration of course and he loved it! Elder Wright stopped this guy in the street actually and gave him a BoM on the spot hahah. How greenies do it...I have no idea. But he did! Anyways, the lesson was awesome and he wants to meet again so we didn't reject that offer. We had him read the first vision and he couldn't see super well so he read really slow and the Spirit was SO strong. I love the first lesson. Friday we met with our investigator finally. His names Fabricio if I didn't say that last week and this guy is so prepared! We sat down and he just went off about how happy he is and how much he needs this change! Then he asked me this question "drinking is allowed right?" Uhh.... This is the third time we've met with this guy and he's begging for the Word of Wisdom lesson. Side note: you prooooooobably shouldn't teach the WoW in your third visit. But I felt super good about it so we did it. And he loved it! He was like "yeah yeah it really isn't good for you..it'll be hard but I feel like I need to drop this habit. Can you give me a blessing?" Hahah uhhhhhh yeah okay! It was awesome to see this guys love for his family and for Christ. Completely willing to do whatever it takes to follow Christ! It's been a humbling experience and he asked to be baptized this Sunday. But we can't make that happen so the 22nd it should! We're super excited for him! As long as he stays from the beer lol. His wife told us "yeah he asks me to bring him a beer from the store and I reply 'no! You have legs! I am not supporting this.'" Yeah preach it girl! They'll be in track to be sealed in the temple this time next year(: super excited.
Took him back to the CCM(MTC in Spanish, also a bank here)
Other than that, not much as happened! Just another awesome week with Elder Wright out here in Spain(: loving life and preaching at good Gospel to the unbelievers. Couldn't think of a better way to be spending my time! Have a gr& week! #TeamHallz, Elder Gearig
