So, this week was kinda just a lot of me being lost out of my mind....it's so weird being in a big city again, and my area is actually 1 city, Cornella, and 3 little towns, San Boi, Gava, and Vildecans, and there are a bunch of mini towns in between. Probably the weirdest was finding out that one of the "little" towns (San Boi) has about 80,000 people. On a GOOD day, the ISLAND of Menorca had about 45,000... so ya...that's a lot of people...and church was 125....yikes...names are gonna be rough for a bit. It's really neat though, because there are people to talk to here…. like, actual people walking in the streets that I have never met before. So we are having a blast!!! It's a bit of an adjustment, but hey, it's the mission.
The only other thing that happened was we had a zone activity, but that was about it :) just work work work!! So, here's a neat little quote from the gospel principles manual.
“When a man has the
manifestation from the Holy Ghost, it leaves an
indelible impression on his soul, one that is not easily erased. It is Spirit
speaking to spirit, and it comes with convincing force. A manifestation of
an angel, or even of the Son of God himself, would impress the eye and
mind, and eventually become dimmed, but the impressions of the Holy
Ghost sinks deeper into the soul and are more difficult to erase”
(Answers to Gospel Questions, comp. Joseph Fielding Smith Jr., 5 vols. [1957–66],2:151).
President Smith also said, “
Through the Holy Ghost the truth is woven into
the very fibre and sinews of the body so that it cannot be forgotten”(Doctrines of
Salvation, comp. Bruce R. McConkie, 3 vols. [1954–56],1: 48).
We taught a lesson on the Spirit, and we used this. It was so powerful, and a lot of fun. The Spirit is so important, especially in the mission.
Well, that was basically my week. Just a lot of map work and asking where I am:)
Love you all!!
