Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Spain

Serving in the Majorca Islands

  Todo esta bien, los bautismos fueron 2 personas, 1 de nosotros (Elder Harris y Yo) lo cual era Antonio, y el otro de Poniente (Palma) de nuestros lideres de zona.  Antonio esta contento y feliz. Yo estoy contento y feliz tambien.

  So yeah, everything went well and it was a great spiritual experience.  This man who has smoked since he was 8 years old changed his life for the better and was baptized and confirmed a member of the true church of God.  Antonio brought a friend to watch the baptism and we have a visit with his friend on Tuesday so we are excited for that.  We have another investigator who came to the baptism with us by the name of Gustavo.  We have been teaching him for the past 2 weeks and he has been progressing really fast.  He has almost all the lessons taught to him already, has gone to see a baptism, and is keeping all the commitments that we give to him.  He is from Argentina, so I told him how you Dad served your mission there a while back and he was glad to hear that.  He is a really good man. 

  The work is still going great.  We are still getting over 20 lessons a week.  It is so great to be able to teach so many people.  We are going to have a baptism this week.  His name is Gustavo.  He is from Argentina and his great grandparents came from Italy.  I didn’t know that a lot of Argentineans came from Italy.  That was an interesting fact that I found out with him.  A lot came from Spain as well, which I already knew, but I didn’t expect Italy. 

   I do love one thing that they have in all of Spain in the bakery shops, it is called, “Napolitanas”.  They are a pastery with chocolate in the inside.  It is soooo good!!!

  We watched the Joseph Smith: The Prophet of the Restoration video last week.  It was in Spanish, of course, but I couldn’t believe how much better it was in Spanish.   I don’t know why it was, but it was and I loved it.  It was a big activity in Palma to bring all our investigators and watch it with them and Gustavo got to come with us.  It was a great turn out.  It was just like a movie theater in there, but better because the spirit was there and it was so strong.
