This week was crazy!!! We had so much going on, and we were running everywhere!! It was super fun though, and we saw a ton of miracles, and I went to bed early a couple of nights because I was so tired! With having all of Menorca to ourselves, if we plan any lessons on different sides of Maó, we have to book it to the visits, and so I'm getting really good at walking fast. Unfortunately, since my legs are a bit longer than Elder Jonsons, he has been racing all over the place, because one of my strides literally is two of his. It's actually pretty funny.
It's getting really toasty here though. Also, we had a real 4th of July party!! Ok, part of a party....there weren't any fireworks, they are illegal here, but, we had the little snaps things:) We were with the Clarks and our ward mission leader, Steve who actually is from Utah, he worked at Utah State, and we had American food,Steve's wife (from Uruguay) tried to make s'mores work out....but she forgot that we needed a fire to do it..it was alright though:) But that was great.
One of the things that has changed recently is that our sacrament meeting is now at 10, not at 12, and so to make sure that everybody in the ward knew, we went and passed by every ward member in Maó on Saturday. It was a crazy day, and we were all over the place, but in the end we did it, and the neatest part was we actually got a member present lesson out of it. It was pretty neat, because it reminded me of a phrase from Elder Jonson. "Have faith in the members" It's true. When we are in a slump, we just need to trust in the members that they will pull through. And when we have that faith, they usually do.
Thank you all for your support!
