Tuesday, while we were at a members house, our investigator called us. He is really hard to meet with so we answered his call. He said he could meet with us in 30 minutes. The problem was he lives like 30 mins away so we would have to leave right then. One of the kids of this family is a returned missionary and he asked what was up. We told him and he told us to leave to be able to meet with him, so that was nice. This investigator's name is Najib and he is from Syria. He happens to already be Christian, so we didn't have to worry about teaching someone who's Muslim without a Christian background, so that was nice. We are going to try to meet with him again tomorrow so we will see. We are eating with the member family again tomorrow, too.
Wednesday we met with Paolo, a less active who smokes a lot, and we are trying to help him. He said he would come to church, but in the end he didn't. Then we met with Juan, the recent convert and he is awesome, like always. He is excited to see his family this upcoming weekend and I think they might be coming back with him from France to spend the holidays here in Spain.
Thursday we had some nice weekly planning and then some other fun stuff. We had a fun family home evening where we invited Juan. Gladys said her husband was going to be there, but he said he had to plan something for work (aka avoiding the missionaries, lol). Hopefully this week we will be able to meet with him. We will keep trying to meet with his family until he feels like being there.
Friday we had a nice family home evening with a family in Coslada. We showed them how to make brownies, so that was fun. They loved the brownies even though I burnt them a little bit, lol.
Saturday we met with Jose and his family. It's strange meeting with them because you feel welcome but you also don't at the same time. It was funny. Hopefully things will get better as we keep meeting with them. We also met with the family from Belgium and got some chocolate from Belgium (it was really good!) and some amazing food. They always try to make something typical from Belgium so that's always fun. The husband told us that his old branch president called him this week and he said it was a surprise from him....... later, when he was in the bathroom, we found out that his wife called the old branch president and told him to call, lol. The wife is doing great, but the husband isn't progressing really at all. We are going to see if we can get him to read or come to church this week.
Well, Sunday we helped set up for a young women thing - some big show off thing they do for them - I forget what it is called in English. (Young Women in Excellence – haha!). Then we had a family home evening with a cool family that lives in Torrejón. We picked out names for Secret Santa. I got the mom so I think some chocolate and something for the kitchen will be good ... I have no idea what to get her!
Well, that's about all. Love you guys!
