Elder Malan de Mallorca


BUSY BUSY BUSY!!!!! I am so tired! But I love it! jaja!!! Anyway we had the opportunity to be a trio again this week. Elder Malan is from Mallorca (well actually Ecuador but raised in Mallorca). He is actually serving in the Salt Lake City South Mission but has been waiting for his visa to enter the States. Thus for the past 4 months he has been serving in Zaragoza. He finally got his visa. So, he came and served with us for several days so that he could be close to Barc for interviews with President and such. He is a great missionary! We´ll miss him in the Spain Barcelona Mission.

We were in a lesson with one of our investigators who has a fecha bautismal, Pablo. We were teaching the Restoration. Halfway through the lesson, I felt inspired to go back and summarize what we had thus far taught, relating everything to how Heavenly Father loves him. After we did this, he got excited and said, "Oh, I am starting to see the body of the message." Meaning, he understands the importance of everything we were teaching. At the end of the lesson he was really excited and told us he was going to talk to his girlfriend about meeting with the missionaries. Again I am reminded of how we do not convert people, the Spirit does!

This week we should have a baptism. Fran(cisca) from Paraguay. She is wonderful!

¡Hasta luego!
