Week 88 - July 27, 2015

This week we had the leadership council in Alcobendas with President and Sister pack and let me tell you, they are incredible!  They are ready to work and it was an incredible meeting!!  Lots of things were discussed in regards to the mission and what we can do to get better.  It was a great council and a lot was done.  The main focus of the meeting was working with members.  We have made a goal to work a lot better with members in the mission.  It may be a slow start, and not a lot of apparent success at first, but the fruits will come and we will truly be able to edify Zion and unify the church here.  The church is relatively young and so member work is exactly what we need to do.  President Pack is an inspired man! 

We gave a zone training on Thursday and it was amazing.  We asked the missionaries for their ideas of what we can do to get better as a mission and as missionaries.  We got a lot of participation and it went extremely well! 

We had to get up early every single morning though and I am exhausted.  It was a crazy week for me as well but I gotta keep working hard! 

But it was an amazing week.  The things are going great in the companionship, we are unified, we are working hard, and things are going well in the area.  We are trying so hard to continue to find new people to teach.  It's been difficult lately, but we are continuing to chug along with those we have. 

Lolo is considering another baptismal date, the 15th of August!  He is still wanting to know better, so pray he can get a spiritual confirmation that this is the true church.  We have been talking to him about Thomas S. Monson and the church organization this week and he asked us where he could find information on President Monson and he spent a couple days listening to his talks in a locotorio.  He says, "I love his words."  They make him emotional and he loves it.  Things are going good with him.

Will is finishing up school so he hasn't really been able to meet but he and Lolo both came to church on Sunday. 

Honestly with the trainings and everything there wasn't a ton that happened this week.  Just know I'm happy, doing well and the work is moving along. I still love every second of this work. 

I love you so much!  You guys are the best!!! 

I love you!
