Four Words

If I had to sum up this week in 4 words I would say potatoes, birthdays and awesome lessons. The week started out with an great noche de hogar at a members house. I always love sharing a message with the members because you get to hear their conversion stories and testimonies. We had an amazing lesson with our friend Edward who is atheist but who told us that he wants to believe in God. Wednesday we were asked to give a taller(workshop) to the district leaders which was terrifying but with Hermana Jones there is no need to fear because it turned out pretty good. On Thursday Hermana Jones and I made mashed potatoes for all the missionaries in Alicante for Thanksgiving. We thought that an entire bag of potatoes would be sufficient but they disappeared within seconds. It was a pretty great Thanksgiving filled with bastante food! This week was filled with birthdays... We celebrated 4 birthdays this week so everyone had plenty of practice by the time mine came around Saturday. Hermana jones tried really hard to keep it a surprise complete with a fake cita and everything. Though my birthday was great I think my favorite part of this week was meeting with our investigator Liam. He was someone in our phone that we called by accident and told us that he wanted to meet . We went by with a member and had an amazing lesson. We also invited him to church and said that he would come. That next morning we woke up and saw that we had a missed call from him. We called hoping that he wasn't going to cancel and lo and behold he didn't! He just wanted to make sure he had the right directions. Even though the lessons that day at church were a bit confusing everyone was so kind to him and went up and introduced themselves to him. I love how we have such welcoming people in our ward. Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes! I hope that all of you had a great Thanksgiving! I am so thankful for this Gospel! This week while studying I noticed that when most people here think of the word faith they think of it as something that is unsure and unsteady but when we hear the word faithful we think of someone who is constant, steady and unwavering. What a difference this -ful makes in the mind of people. May we all be more full of faith everyday. I hope that people can see the consistency and happiness that the Gospel as brought to me and how important it is to have faith in our Savior. I love you all! Have a great week!
