Day 485

ok lets see, this week was great, we only had 1 morning to do all of our normal work i guess you could say. like seriously all of our mornings were taken away from us and we still did a butt load of work. thinking back on it all i dont know how we got the amount of lessons as we had. its amazing haha we keep imagining if we had all of our time to do everything. haha anyways. its ok we arent mad. i got my residency card taken care of so i wont get kicked out of spain thats a good thing haha happy moment of the week. we also went to a baptism last night with one of our investigaters, she is from nicaragua and super funny, she is with a friend but her friend doesnt really want anything to do with us, she listens but she likes the worldy things too much, so anyways we hit up that baptism and she has a date for this weekend it wasnt super set it was kind of a lazy date but after seeing the baptism she wants to get baptised. she tried to tell us she would do it in nicaragua. but then the convincingness that comes from the elder bradley that we all know and love came out and she said she would give us a set date where she wont back down the next time we meet with her. so we are excited. we are really happy. haha good things are happening. we are trying to do more but there just is no time or energy. running up and down hills all day like literally haha i love it but i am going to be in such good shape ill probably be in wal mart after the mission and buy everything in 15 minutes cause it will just get done like that haha. its funny. anyways other cool things from this week. i cant really think of much else. we had our specialized training and we talked a lot about personal revelation thats kind of been the focus for president lately before he leaves. i guess. anyways he told us some cool things. we are the top baptizing mission in spain. that has never happened before, we are on track for our goal of 404 plus baptisms for this year. last year we got 325 and that has never happened in our missions history. so we are just going onward and upward with everything that we are doing. we are really excited and happy to be here. haha he went to a mission president conference and said that in other places they got on the plane and it was -17 C and here its 20 or 25 degree C so we are just being blessed a lot.

Elder Geest is an animal. his sister was in my zone in the MTC so i knew him a little bit i have met him once before and we are both really happy to be companions right now we jsut laugh all day really running and laughing i guess that could be the theme of this transfer, he is a hard worker and he says that im always happy. for example last night when we were at the baptism we had to run to catch the bus but we missed the one we wanted because after nine they leave at a different stop. its ok. the only problem is that the next one didnt leave til 11. our investigator watches a grandma and was late for work and she was freaking out and there was this other lady that had missed it as well so we just started get to know you questions for like 30 min and everyone was having a good time. it was kind of cool. but then we got home and we were hungry so we go to the kitchen and there were ants crawling everywhere by the sink ( this wasnt the first time that it has happened we had bought spray and stuff and havent had this problem for a couple weeks) but then i was like we should make a video on our cameras of the disasters in the ant world "and now more on the floods happening in sink island next to the volcano from stovetop" haha we didnt end up making a video but we were just laughing and stayed up pretty late cleaning. its ok though. mission life. no need to fret we havent had cockroaches.... yet. i havent had problems with those in my mission like other elders have had. im praying that i still dont have to but one never knows.

Well things are going great.. Ryker is getting big. cache looks like lance. we are happy and healthy keep being happy. happy spring and enjoy conference! love you all!!!!
