Tuesday, we had intercambios and I was with Elder Smith. He is from Utah and his parents are converts to our church. Also, he is the first member of his family to serve a mission, so it was cool talking to him and seeing the difference between my family (who all have served missions) and his family, who are still getting to know the church. We had a fun intercambio, did some service and then met with Raul and shared the plan of salvation with him. It was a good practice and a good review for Raul.
Wednesday we went to district meeting and it was good. Then we went to Madrid for our doctor appointment. The doctor is a cool guy who speaks perfect English. Well, my comp talked to him while they took my blood and good thing they took it on Wednesday and not Thursday because I had a beer on Thursday! Well my comp and I had to run to another doctor because my comp was pregnant (just kidding). He had to get a (I don't know how how to spell it) thing where they put the cream on your belly and use the machine to see the baby (ultrasound). Well, he had to get that to make sure all was going well there. Then, after we found a Subway and ate there. It was good (it reminded me of going out to lunch with my coworker, Salvador). Then, we headed back to Segovia.
Thursday we did weekly planning. Then in the afternoon we did some passbys for some old investigators and a old couple let us in. Well, this is where I confess and say I drank a beer (for all of you thinking, what is a missionary doing drinking beer! Well, it was alcohol free – so, Got ya!). So, this couple let us in, and in the end, offered us the beers. I tried saying no, but they insisted and they knew that it was because of alcohol that we can't drink beer, and this beer didn't have that, so I took it. Well, they pulled out their big glasses for the beers and when I opened the beer, just the smell made me want to throw up! Some how I managed to get it down and, well, then they insisted that I drink another. Thankfully, it was time to go, so they let us take the beers with us. Then we went to the branch family home evening, then headed home.
Friday we had a full day. We meet with Yunior and talked about the plan of salvation and how we need to think about the eternal view, not just the earthly view. Then we ran to Carola and Guillermo's house and, well, Guillermo wouldn't come out of his room, so we shared a message with Carola. Then we ate some French toast thing (an Easter week treat - a bit late, but, whatever. It was good!). Then we had English classes and we met with a new investigator named Mosta. He speaks Arabic, then French, and then Spanish. He was having a hard time understanding us in Spanish, so Elder Fletcher switched to French. It was a good lesson. Then we went to meet with Jorge, and it was good.
Saturday we went to Avila and met with the active members there. Then we met with Sister Ana. She is a sad lady, depressed, but we are trying to help her. Then we went to meet with Joy, a woman from Nigeria, who didn't show up and couldn't meet later. Then we talked to a of couple people and got some numbers. It was good. Next time we go, we will have a couple more investigators to meet with.
Sunday, Yunior came to church - a bit late, but at least he came. I gave a talk on marriage and family. It was good and I think it helped some of the members. Later that afternoon, we met with Sister Soledad, and ended up teaching her niece the Restoration. It was good, but she lives in another area and doesn't want to meet with the missionaries. But, she has the Book of Mormon.
Today we cleaned for a couple hours and now the piso is all clean.
Well, that was my week.
