Week 79: United Nations of Vic, and Bees and Lambs!

Hello from the Osona Valley!

United Nations of Vic. Might sound excessive but it's true. We had a
zone goal Tuesday to find as many countries in our contacts that day
as possible. Within a few hours we met people from 15 countries. And
some new ones too, Guinea Bissau, Ivory Coast, Gambia, El Salvador,
you've got them all here. We found this one man, pretty old too, from
Morocco. He then went off telling us how the Koran teaches of how to
live well, honey and a few other things. While the things he was
telling us were strange, it was made both stranger and more funny when
he kept mixing up the words Oveja y abeja (lamb and bee), when talking
about the way bees have babies. We didn’t get it for a while so I was
thinking "I guess lambs in Morocco are different than in Spain...".
When you talk to everyone you see, you find your characters.

On Thursday I had an intercambio with my hijo Elder Perry. Good times
in Granollers, running through the streets with a guitar on Elder
Perry’s back and me chugging alongside him. Lots of people, but super
flojo so they gave us some fake numbers. People let me down some days.

Not much to report this week other than that. We've been able to find
two investigators that are beginning to progress. Steven, from Ghana,
has been very receptive, accepted a fecha for the 18th of March, and
is coming to church this next week. He met with the Ghanaian first
counselor here too and they get along pretty well. We've also begun to
teach the younger cousin of Jamileth, a recent convert named
Annabelle (she moved here from Nicaragua 4 weeks ago). She didn't
accept a baptismal date, but she's still open to learning more, and
was very receptive to the restoration. She's come to church 3 times
now, and she’s open in the classes. More or less she's been the miracle
this week. After finding a lot of flojo people, we've been able to
become friends with Annabelle, and we're hoping to find some fruits
because of it! Our follow up call with Geraldo is today so we'll see
how he is with coming back to church after this conference he was at
all last month.

Today for preparation day we cleaned, rested and ate kebab. And I
tabbed my scriptures. After a few weeks of crazy hikes we needed the

Also fun fact, there's an Indian bread called Chopati. Don't know much
about it so if you could send me a pic of it that'd be great!

Love and miss you all.

"There is no such thing as falling off the straight and narrow path in
the life to come, and the reason is that this life is the time that is
given to men to prepare for eternity.  Now is the time and the day of
your salvation, so if you're working zealously in this life -- though
you haven't fully overcome the world and you haven't done all you
hoped you might do -- you're still going to be saved." Bruce R.

Only on the mission would tabbing your scriptures make you excited!  haha!
