Elder Adamson's Letter 5/5/2014

Howdy.  Here´s the week.

Last Monday, we went to Sevilla and checked out the big park by Plaza de España.  It was REAAAALLY hot that day.  Sevilla is crazy hot, and we were walking around during the hottest part of the day. 

 Later that night we went to go see S... and we found a new Nigerian investigator named K....  He has a really weird accent, but he´s super nice and seems to be pretty interested.   We gave him one of         S..´s Book of Mormon's because he had like 3 there and he was excited to read it.

Tuesday, we had a pretty normal day.  We had our district meeting and then in the afternoon to see P..., the P... family, and R.... Nothing really new to report there.

Wednesday we went to teach L... English and we talked about the Plan of Salvation with her.  Later that night we went to the Noche De Hogar and Elder Enfield and I shared a message about Godly Sorrow and it was lots of fun. It's fun to teach there.

Thursday night, we went to see J... and A... for a bit, and then stopped by to see N... and H...  N...   didn´t seem super happy to see us and the kids were really quiet when we first came in, but after a little while they warmed up to us again.  We shared a little message from the Book of Mormon there but it was pretty uncomfortable.  They didn´t get out their books or anything.  It was basically just Elder Enfield and I talking.  President Deere should be coming this week to go to a cita with us.

Friday, we found a new investigator named A....  She´s from Nicaragua and speaks English, French, and Spanish.  She´s 26 years old and was almost baptized in Nicaragua as a girl, but she moved before she got the chance.  She´s really friendly and speaks really openly with us, which is a good sign.   Later we saw X... and P...

Saturday, we went to go see A... again in the morning. We taught her about the restoration because she had a lot of questions about Joseph Smith the last time.  The lesson went well, and we invited her to church the next day, but she didn´t show up.  We got her to pray though, and she´s reading as well. We also stopped by J... and A...´s house to see the family because they just found out that their grandmother in the Dominican Republic passed away. We spent a little time with them over there for a while and E... wanted us to give her a blessing so we did.  Things were pretty sad, but the the boys were helping their family to know that they can see their abuela again. They had a lot of family and friends over there to visit and comfort them.

Sunday, I got to translate at church A LOT. I translated all 3 hours for the C... and also did some English to Spanish translations over the pulpit.  It was lots of fun but at the same time really tiring.  I´ve gotten lots better though since my first time. ha ha  Later we went to try a lot of other plans we had, but got failed by most all of them and then stopped by to see Joni and Alex for a while.

This week, Elder Enfield and I made some Brazilian food, and also some Korean barbeque.  Watch out everyone.  I´m going to be the master chef by the time I get home.

The work is picking up slowly but surely here in Dos Hermanas and Elder Enfield and I are having a great time together. Being a missionary is the best even though there are a LOT of disappointments.  All the happy moments make up for it. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the kingdom of God over the earth.   Christ is our Savior and best friend.  Only through Him can we have all that our Father has.

Elder Adamson
