This week was a Miracle week!! Want to know why? We finally have a fecha (baptismal date)!!! Her name is Margarita, and she is really great. She even got up early and came to church yesterday! We were on intercambios this week..sorta...Elder Jennings came out here to Menorca, so we didn't really do the cambio part, but while he was here we went to go visit a lady named Dolores, and her sister joined in the lesson this time, and so we invited her to be baptized, and she said yes!! So, hopefully on the 2nd of August we will be filling up the font. I'm super excited. This is the first one here on the island.
Also, there is a mom and her daughter that really like the activities we do, and so they always come to the church, but they never want us to come visit them in their house. Well, last week they didn't come to any activities, and we didn't know why until we found out that the mom had had surgery! So, we called her up and asked if we could bring her brownies, and she said yes! So, we tried to make brownies....neither of us had done it before, but we had the recipe from Elder Jennings, but even so, they weren't good...at all...but hey, we tried! So in the end, we went to the store and bought some cookies and took them over to her, and we found out that her daughter had fallen that morning and broken her foot. We had a really good visit, and now we have to try the brownies again, and we can take them over to their house. It was a huge blessing.
Also this week, I had my first piso check, so that was interesting. (we passed:) and we did a ton of service. Did I ever say I'm learning how to restore a car? That's one of the things we are doing for the service. It's a ton of fun. We also went to a recent converts field again and got stung by some wasps. But one thing I learned this week was that like it says in 1 Nephi 3:7 the Lord will never ask us to do something we aren't able to do. Even though everyone and their dog knows that scripture, it's still one of my favorites, especially here on the islands.
Thanks for all your support and prayers.
