This week has been packed full. First of all we had Zone Conference, it was interesting and I learned a lot but realllyyyy long haha. There's just a point after like the first 4 hours when your focus just goes 😂 the meeting started at 10:30 pm and ended at 6:00 pm we had an hour break for lunch but the food just made me more tired haha. Basically it was about focusing our efforts on the youth because they are a lot more receptive to us.
Other than that let's see... we had an activity this week with the ward. It was supposed to be super awesome and we had invited tons of people. It was part investigators and also just a free meal for any people who are in need. So we basically invited every homeless person we saw. In Spain I'm pretty sure that's like 10% of the population, they are everywhere! Anyways so the day finally arrived for the activity and.... IT RAINED :( when it rains in Spain, nobody goes out.. so only a handful of people ended up coming... that was a bummer. I especially felt really bad for our stake mission leader because he had put so much work into it.
Recently my comp and I have been focusing on trying to find service. Its hard here because there isn't a whole lot you can do for service. We've passed by a lot of organizations but they don't really want our help. We did find a guy here though that is restoring a building by himself, he has been working on it for the past 10 years! Anyways so we set a time to come back this week and help him for an hour or so. I'm super excited for that!
Okay I'll explain the pictures real quick,
The big leg is a ham leg, it is like a big delicacy in Spain, they range from seventy to the thousands of euros, its like aged wine haha so basically how they make it is just take a raw meat leg and stick it in salt, then leave it there for 1-10 years! The people here think it is like the best thing ever. I just think it tastes like salt haha anyways so we ate that at Jose and Encarnis house along with a lot of other typical Spanish food like the potato tortilla.
The other pictures just the train on the way to zone meeting, soccer on Thursday nights here at the chapel then the go karts we did today for p-day because it was one of the Elders Birthday. It was super fun and I won by a lot hahaha (got all my speedy driving skills from Terri Andretti Childers.) thanks mom 😘
Well love you guys! Have a good week :)
