Elder Adamson's Letter 3/30/2015

Hello everyone!  This has been one of the greatest weeks of my mission so far.  Here´s how it went.
Last P-day it was Hermano Pedro´s birthday (AKA Grandpa Pete).  He´s one of our favorite members here in Granada and he comes out to work with us all the time.  We threw a little birthday party for him in the capilla and had a good time.  He turned 58 years old. The Hermanas made lunch for everyone.  I attached a picture of the party.

This week we were able to find a new investigator named Ana.  She is from Granada and told us that about 30 years ago when she was a young girl she almost got baptized with her best friend but decided not to in the end.  She welcomed us to her home and we shared a little bit about our message with her.  The more we talked, the more she opened up and she just really wants to know who God is and what he wants with her.  Her father died about a month ago which has been hard for her. A member named Vicente came along with us and bore his testimony  We felt the Spirit very strong in that lesson and we set a baptismal date with her for the 25th of April. 

On Tuesday, we went to Málaga for zone conference.  We talked a lot about focusing on our purpose and how to help members to fulfil their missionary purpose. 

 All five of my last companions were at zone conference so we got a picture of us together.  

On our way home from zone conference we called Adrían so we could meet with him and ask him how his fast went.  He didn´t have very much time to meet, but we got together at the capilla for just a little while.  We sat down, started with a prayer and asked him how his fast went.  He told us all about it and that all of his doubts were cleared up, and then he said "I think that God told Adamson that we should do this super prayer because it really helped me to clear everything up".  In the last lesson we had with him we explained that fasting was like a "super prayer".  After Adrián finished the fast everything was clear for him and he knew that he needed to be baptized. We did a pre-interview with him and saw that he was very ready to be baptized this weekend.  I was very very humbled on that night as we knelt down to pray with him.  The Lord placed Adrián in our path and He used us as instruments to help Adrián enter into a covenant with Him.  I am so grateful for my calling.  I know that God loves every one of His children and he seeks to lead us to Salvation.  Adrián was baptized on Saturday by the father of his girlfriend, Alex. 
 He was so repentant and a little emotional even just before the baptism started while he was changing into his white clothes.  I had the opportunity to confirm him yesterday at church.  After he was baptized Adrián could feel the Spirit so strongly and bore his strong, growing testimony with tears in his eyes.  That was one of the sweetest experiences of my whole life.  Adrián has entered into the door that leads to eternal life. 

Love you and have a great week!
