Tortosa = Heat

Hello to all!

We had a wonderful week finished off with a great conference yesterday
with 40 missionaries! It was very good! I learned a ton from the
conference. President Dayton, the mission president, taught about how
we can get the most out of our missions. He taught about truly giving
our hearts over to the Lord instead of just grudgingly following his
commandments. Because there is a difference! We need to follow the
commandments because it's truly what we want to do not because we
don't want to get in trouble. Then we are truly disciples of Jesus

This week was very good. We had a very normal week. It was fairly
stressful with problems in the area and with our friends that are
learning about the gospel. But our biggest miracle would have to be
our dear friend Iru. We were only able to meet with him one time this
week and it was amazing. We walked up to the place where we were going
to teach him and he was talking to 5 Spaniards that did not believe in
God. The amazing thing is that he was testifying to them about our
church. He was testifying to them about Jesus Christ. He was
testifying to them about the Book of Mormon and the Bible. It was so
great to see. He even asked all five of them if we could come share a
message with them one day. It was so rewarding to see the conversion
that has taken place with him. We are a little worried because he has
started to work a lot more lately and we do not want that to stop his
progression. So we are working with him to understand the importance
of church and the Sabbath Day. But he is moving swiftly towards a full
and wonderful life as a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter Day Saints Saints.

Elder Cushing has had a very tough week. He has had to deal with a lot
of problems here in the area and in the district and he has handled it
very well. I am impressed every week with his humility and his ability
to lead. He is a great leader!

It is super hot out here now. The people are saying that it's way too
hot out here for May so I am not looking forward to the heat to come
in the later months of summer. Pray for me.
