So I had my last concilio yesterday, it was a really bittersweet experience. When there are zone leaders going home and it is their last concilio, they always make us get up and take a few minutes to say what we have learned and what the Lord has taught us on our missions. It was literally impossible for me to put into a few words all that the Lord has taught me!! I honestly got up there and didn’t know what to say, and I hadn’t really thought about it either because I was in denial that it was my last concilio ha ha. But it was a sweet experience and bittersweet all at once.
And now we are back in Palma. Our mission goal for June is to find 2000 new investigators, we normally average around 1400 so it will be a stretch but we are going to go for it, while trying to work with the members more. So we will see how it goes!! And our joven Edgar came to church on Sunday!! It was a huge miracle and he is on track to get baptized this Saturday if all goes well, we have been teaching him for about three or four months now.
We saw a lot of good miracles this week but my favorite had to be with our investigator Matias; a man from Pais Vasco, (Las Arenas of all places :) We had a visit in the church in front of the pila bautismal. The second he set foot into the sacrament room he said, “I feel the paz.” And he said he felt the same thing in front of the pila. He is really good at recognizing the paz in his life that has come from the Book of Mormon, his prayers, and listening to us teach him the gospel. The last hurdle is church because of his job but now that we are going at 10:00 a.m. he will be able to come. He said to us ¨me verán aquí¨ It was such a miracle!!! It has to be a Cornelius experience for sure; a man with a good job, home, car, and a future Melchezedik Priesthood holder. The stake is coming!! He has got to come to church!! We are praying so hard that he can get Sunday mornings off; it is literally the last thing stopping him.
Then we have another Spanish guy that we found named Antonio who wants to get baptized on the 14th as well, and he came to church and loved it. So we have some good things going already this month, we just got to add to it!! But we are really trying to get these three baptisms and a fourth before it is all said and done.
Love you all!!!
