Elder Adamson's Letter 1/19/2015
Hello everyone! We have had another amazing week here in Granada and here´s what went down
This week in the zone we organized a week of setting baptismal dates. We started out the week with 9 fechas, but yesterday as we were counting up numbers we ended up with 21 which is pretty good for our zone. We were super happy about it and we had a lot of fun working on it. We sent out text messages every night to the zone to tell them how many fechas we had up until that day and how many more we needed. Our goal was 25 but 21 ain´t too shabby.
This week we found a new investigator named Love-it. She is from Nigeria and she is a very good and sincere investigator. She lives here by herself with here 1 year old daughter and she is always very happy to receive us. Most investigators will tell us to come over on another day if they aren´t feeling very well, but Love-it has let us come and visit her and has even walked to church in the rain with us. She has some very pure desires to "Serve God" and she tells us that almost every time we meet. She has a baptismal date for the 1 of February.
We are also teaching a man named Fran who should really actually already be baptized. He is a former investigator that just kind of fell through the cracks a while ago. He has come to church like 15 times and he has a pretty strong testimony already. We set a fecha with him for the 25 of Jan, so we´re going to see what we can do to help him be baptized on that day.
This week I got to do another baptismal interview in Jaén. It was about an hour drive out there but it´s really pretty. The whole way there you can see mountains and hills just covered in olive trees--seriously as far as the eye can see. I got to interview a 15 year old girl named Mari and she was very excited and ready to be baptized. I will always love that part of being a missionary.
It has gotten really cold here recently and it rained a ton last night. The Sierra Nevada is covered in snow and it´s super pretty. I´m going to appreciate the Utah mountains so much more when I get home. It´s been nice to see them here in Granada after being in super flat places for so long.
I hope you are all having a great week and I love you tons!
Con muchísimo cariño, (With great affection,)
