Cliff side Castles

This week was sooo great as usual. Honestly, it was pretty low key in
the majority of the week. A lot of talking to people in the street and
passing by people who the missionaries have met with before.

We ended up getting tired of doing the same thing for a day and we
decided to take on some people in basketball. I'm not bad, and my
companion is amazing at basketball, so we destroyed some Spanish
people who only play soccer. We started coming back to keep working
with certain people. We found an amazing couple who we are visiting
tonight from it. He played for the Yankees, is from the Dominican
Republic, and sings really well. It is super fun to meet people like
that.

A crazy experience that happened was we went to go visit a woman from
Romania who was in the hospital. One of the members sent us there to
go and talk with her. However, right when we got there the doctors
were wheeling her out for surgery, and her family was all there
sobbing. It was a surprise surgery, and so it was a pretty intense
situation. I've never felt so awkward and out of place in my entire
life. We ended up staying and saying a pray with the mom to comfort
her. It was definitely a moment in which the Lord send us to help
people who needed to feel His comfort and peace.

Easter was this weekend, and I could not be more grateful to be a
missionary during this time. My testimony of this sacrifice of the
Savior has grown immensely during my time as a missionary. I can feel
His forgiveness, peace, support, and love every single day out here in
the field. There truly is nothing better. We are so blessed to be able
to show people the importance of His sacrifice, and the importance of
the Restoration of the gospel with it.

To finish off, for preparation day we went to some sea side cliffs
where there was some towers. It was super beautiful. I love SPAIN!!!!
It is so fun to see all of the old things.

Well, that's a rap, have a smashing week!!

Love you all,
Elder Beck
