This week is been super good we have been having a blast here and Castellón. Right now we are sitting in a beautiful café enjoying some Frank Sinatra and a decent chocolate muffin. I hope everyone has had a fantastic week, and it looks like a ton of people are now done with school so congrats.
Week has been super nice as far as weather goes. You have enjoyed playing a lot of sports as a matter of finding people. For example, we went to a nice tennis club in the mountains to play with an investigator who invited us and it was super fun. We also found a good group of people playing basketball and we decide to put the hurt on. It does help that my companion is an amazing player. We are now famous here for being the two kids in shirts and ties who rail in basketball. People have started recognizing us, and it has been a great tool to find people to teach.
This week I also had the wonderful opportunity to go to a tiny town called Teruel. It is a super secluded town in the mountains. After a horrible bus ride we end up in a tiny, beautiful castle like town that's famous for their Jamón. That was a blast walking and talking to people on those streets.
We also had two fantastic moments especially. On Thursday we had basically two make or break it lessons with our main investigators Clotilde and Fabricio. They both went incredibly well. Fabrico's ended up being a for sure baptism date. He has a testimony of the Book of the Mormon, and he will get baptized on the 3rd of June. He is really prepared. I just love his so desires to communicate with God. He prays all the time. He even talked about serving a mission.
I know that God lives. He is our Heavenly Father, and He loves you more than you can even imagine! I hope you will take a moment to reflect on that this week! I love you!
