Elder Adamson's Letter 5/26/2014
Here´s the week
Monday, we went to the Torre de Oro in Sevilla which was pretty cool. Later that night we stopped by S...´s house and talked a little bit about the gospel of Jesus Christ with him and had a pretty good lesson. Not much else that day
Tuesday, we had our district meeting in the morning and then I went on intercambios to Utrera with Elder Brewer and had a blast. We ate tons of Bolivian food and just had a good time together. He´s a great Elder and he´s one of the hardest workers I´ve seen.
Wednesday, I came back to Dos Hermanas and Elder Enfield and I went to go do English classes with L..., shared a short message and then headed over to X...'s house and then to the Noche de Hogar. It was pretty average this week because not very many people could come, but we still had a good time.
Thursday, we had a great cita with X...and talked about her coming to the Capilla and we had L... and J.. there. We were almost certain she was going to come this week, but unfortunately, they failed us again. Later that night, we taught H... and N... a new member lesson with M... A... and it went great. They´re going super well right now. Then we stopped by to see J... and his family and they hooked us up with some Hawaiian punch packets that they got while they were in Utah.
Friday, we went to go see M... S... in the morning because he´s been having trouble trying to stop smoking, so we gave him a blessing and shared a good ánimo (encouragement) scripture with him, because he was feeling kind of down. Then we went and saw A, M, and P in the afternoon, and they were just as crazy as ever. Nothing has really changed with them, but we went to check up on them. Then we stopped by J... V...´s house because it was his birthday and we gave them a cake and they let us stay for dinner, which was a good trade, because L...is a super good cook.
Saturday, we stopped by to see the P... family, checked up on J... and A... and stopped by to see X...as well. Later, we had a super good lesson with N... and H.. about the plan of salvation and Temples. They had lots of good questions and were very interested in the topic. Our goal is to get them there this year.
Sunday, I had to give a talk in church about the power of the Book of Mormon, and got to sit by N... because he´s back in Spain now. It was good to catch up with the man. It´s always funny to sit by him because he just belts the hymns in English while everyone else is singing in Spanish. Later that night, we had dinner with J... and A... and shared a Mormon message with N... and H... at their house.
This has been an all around pretty average week to be quite honest, but Elder Enfield and I are having a good time here together. I´ve been studying about the importance of the Book of Mormon this week a lot. I know it´s the word of God. It couldn't be anything else. I testify that it is the word of God and that it truly does help us to grow closer to God as we search the pages diligently for his guidance. He who diligently searches Him shall find Him!
The pictures I´m sending are the torre de oro and a thing in Sevilla called Las Setas, (the mushrooms) It´s a Big structure in the center and there´s a little restaurant at the top. Super cool.
