#15 Gotta Be Quick
Well the truth is Talavera is hard! It´s a great learning experience though. I just feel like I´m back in High school getting turned down by all of these people(It was girls in high school) Jk but There are a lot of Gypsies and Spaniards!
I just want to take a second and tell you about this family who we meet with. Their name is Tati(The mom) Edwardo(The dad) Mar(The daughter) Ester(The other daughter) Well they´re great! Edwardo is from Spain and Tati is from the Dominican Republic. They haven´t had work for like 5 years. Edwardo fasts 2 days a week to ask for the Lord´s help. That impressed me that he keeps looking and turning to the Lord to help him. Now he has a job offer to start building churches! They´re great! Plus we went and ate food then went to the park with them. They needed a day out of the house!
Well right when I got here we weren´t teaching many people, but I talked to my comp and we were working on building solid relationships, and we had 6 investigators to church! (That´s a lot for a European mission ;) Well the Lord has really blessed us!
I know the church is true and the gospel blesses families! I know we have inspired leaders who can help and bless our lives!
