Week 95: Demons, Them Hot Breezes, Italian Seventy, and Valldemossa!

Hola familia!

It has been a week let me tell you. I've been tossed across the
country, on an island in the middle of the sea, with my companion and
16 others to share the gospel here. It's the best.

First off, my companion is Elder Downing, from Temecula, California,
has lots of energy and likes to have fun. So yes we've had fun here.

It's hot. Like about 90 or so with some humid ocean breezes. Adds a
nice layer of shiny sweat to ones head as you talk to strangers in
doorways in Spanish. Some days I must look ready to pass out! I drink
more than two liters a day of water so that shouldn't be a problem.
But you know what I'm already getting tan so tender mercy.

This weekend we had a district conference (for the Baleares district)
with Elder Dini Ciacci of the seventy (super funny, and very direct.) I
don't know how he did it, but he bluntly told us that we're failing in
our branch councils and in keeping the commandments to the full ways,
and we still felt loved by him. That's impressive. We had a hilarious
play of branch council during the adult session. The best part is that
he only speaks English, so it was made funnier as his translator
worked to help the congregation and group understand him.

Maria. Take this, we have a cita cancel on us, we walk towards a park
to do some calls (my first night on the island mind you), and this lady
calls us over. Long story short, she was Maria. Baptized twenty years
earlier along with her whole family, but then went inactive for
reasons we’re still working on. Her daughter after getting into drugs 7
years ago has gotten quite messed up, and because of that her home
where Veronica the daughter and Maria live had some bad influences.
Thanks to the lord helping us be there at an hour when she was, we
were able to bless the house, get rid of any bad spirits, and give her
a blessing of comfort. The house is good, and now she can come back to

Other than that, good week, lots of fun Spanish people (here they're
called Mallorquins), and people from Paraguay.
Love and miss you all!   D.C. 1:36, it's true.
