Elder Adamson's Letter 3/9/2015
This week was transfer week and Elder Metcalf had to leave on Sunday afternoon, so I stayed with the other Granada Elders for about 3 days while I waited for Elder Christiansen to come. I had a good time with them and got to know Elder Quinn and Pomazón a lot more. On Wednesday, Elder Christiansen got here. He is a GREAT missionary. He´s been in the mission for one transfer less than me and he´s also from Texas. He is super funny and he´s really really smart. I´m pretty sure he was the Valedictorian of his high school. He went to one year of BYU before coming on the mission. I´m super excited to be his companion. He´s already great. Also, he´s from Fort worth Texas. Two Texans in a row!
This week one of the biggest highlights was that we got to meet with Adrián in Juani´s house. They live in the same pueblo so it was a lot easier for Adrián to meet there. Juani was a great member present and he even offered to take Adrián to church on Sunday. Adrián is doing really well and he´s progressing well towards his baptismal date on the 28th of March.
We´ve got a bit of a shortage of investigators but the few that we do have are doing really well. We set another fecha with a man named James from Nigeria. He's a really good guy and told us that he's never been baptized and he would like to be. He still hasn´t been able to come to church yet, though so we´ll see how things go with him.
This week in church was really good. We had Noemí and Victor, and Thaynara all come for the first time in a while. They are a little less active right now but we´re working with them, I also got to give a talk in church this week. I spoke about the atonement and missionary work and how the experiences that we have with the Savior move us to want to share the gospel with other people. It turned out well, I think. That is what really drives people to share the gospel. I shared the story about Elder Bednar's two little boys that he shared in the last general conference.
Today we're going to head out to Málaga for Concilio so I've gotta head out now. I´ll let you know how it went next week.
