The original Sisters who met on Facebook before going to the mission
Hermanas Larsen, Cragun, Erying, and Stapley
The leaves are changing and the weather is slowly beginning to cool down here in Sabadell. The people are switching their morning coffees, to churros and chocolate, and Spanish fans are being replaced with umbrellas these days to avoid the never ending forecast of rain. I love it though. Sabadell is just quiet and cozy at this time of year.
Nothing too exciting to report this week, interviews and the usual work. Our investigator from Bolivia, Daniella, is doing great. We brought her to sacrament meeting and she loved it. She received a blessing to help her heal with an injury, and after we walked together silently, she said "there are no words to describe this feeling."As for other investigators, we worked with David from Honduras, Laurenza from Bolivia, and actually a Muslim. Usually Muslims aren't really open to change, but this man is actually honestly really interested. After we explained the first vision he sat there for a second and then said "did it really happen?" And I said "yes" and he sat there quietly amazed.We got our teeth kicked in this week contacting. We had a ton of success the past two weeks but is week was tougher, nooooo one wanted to listen. We decided we needed to be even more obedient and it paid off. We were out contacting in the streets and met a lady named Hilda from Bolivia. At first she was not too interested but at the end of the conversation she was like why don't you come over Saturday and I'll make you lunch? And I'll invite my niece and sister and their kids and friends from Barcelona because I think they would like to hear this message tooWe waited till we turned the corner to scream in excitement.There is nothing like serving a mission. If you really let it, it truly changes you little by little. It's the hardest but best decision I've ever made and ever day I am just more grateful for it.
Love you all! Xoxox Hermana Cragun
