Direct quote from my email to Mom last week: "enjoy the snow! i havent touched any in 2 years!!!" Well I have to be more careful about what I say in my emails. On Thursday it snowed for the first time in 2 years in the Barcelona area. And let me tell you, it snowed! Nothing compared to home, however it did start to stick a little bit. Luckily it was weekly planning time so we did not have to leave for proselytismo. however we enjoyed watching it fall. all weekend there were temperatures around freezing and sunday it snowed a little bit more...nothing too much though. i tried catching snowflakes with my tongue. a lady saw me and started laughing. haha i guess i havent changed much.
We have been really trying to apply better the techniques for finding. We have seen quite a few miracles as a result of this. To escape the cold we have been visiting the members more. We share a spiritual message and leave, having been warmed by the calefacción and the Spirit. Also we have been focusing more on contacting. In general as a result of these two things, we have been finding a lot more investigators and our total number of lessons has increased substantially.
Edwin (who got baptized in november) is amazing! He accompanied us on some visits this weekend. His timidness seemed to disappear! He shared such a great testimony in each visit. The last person we visited is an investigator with whom he is friends. When we invited her to come to church, she was not very excited. However Edwin convinced her come!
