On The Road Again


Well the Lord is really trying to teach me to accept change. Once again after only two transfers (3 months) I have been transferred. I am not going to lie, at first I was quite frustrated. This is the second time in a row that I have been transferred from an amazing ward so quickly. I was looking forward to stake conference where I could see everyone from Lleida and Tarragona. And we have 6 fechas bautismales here. Indeed I was quite frustrated. But then I got over myself. Now I have a lot of excitement to go to my new area. In fact I am actually starting to like change. I get to meet new people and work super hard in many great places. And change keeps things interesting. Being transferred a lot is quite humbling. This is a great lesson for me.

I am going to Granollers. It is about a half hour north of Barcelona. My new companion is Elder Ellis. He is now my second non-American companion.....yep he is from Canada! It will be fun. He is from Vancouver Island. This will be his third transfer in the mission. I look forward to working with him a lot.

Oh sadly, the miracle of me not being allergic to seafood has come to an end. Yesterday in a member´s house (super embarrassing) my allergies returned in full force. There was vomiting and hives. I had to return to piso, take a Benadryl, and rest for a bit. It completely ruined our plans to despedirme a todos.

This week I learned why we have such great missionaries here in the Spain Barcelona Mission. The missionaries have great parents! We invited the father of one the Hermanas who is returning home this week to help us in a visit with an African woman. This investigator has a fecha, but is having trouble with the Word of Wisdom. The father of the sister missionary bore an amazing testimony and everytime he spoke we could feel the Spirit super strongly. She could feel it too. He helped us out greatly. With the faith of our fathers we are performing miracles here in Spain!

¡Hasta luego!
