It's gettin HOT

Hey family!!!!!

Ok. I'm getting started early, so I'll maybe have a better letter
today. :) First, I just would like to say that summertime in Spain is
SO HOT. It's only like 80 degrees here, but it's so humid that we are
just CONSTANTLY sweating. all. The. Time. The bad news about that is
that very few people actually have AC in their apartments, but the
Good news is that here in Spain, it's totally acceptable to carry
around those fans like we're in some movie from the early 1800's!!!
IT'S THE GREATEST THING!!! It's still pretty hot, but it makes
everything better to get to pretend that I'm like Elizabeth Swan or
something.

Anyway, it's gettin HOT.

Also, that brings the beginning of the Tourist season, so there's tons
of people from all over now! We're getting a few opportunities to
speak English to people, and then there are people from France and
Germany and Russia, which makes it awkward to try and contact them,
because we can't speak very well. ;) But it's always fun!

This week we got a reference from a member in Barcelona, for her
sister! We went and visited this cute little Peruvian family, and
started teaching the mom and her two daughters. (Super adorable
twins!!) They're so excited to learn about the Gospel, and we have
another meeting with them tonight, so we'll see what happens!

Our baptismal fechas aren't going to happen this week, because our
cute little family didn't get to make it to church, but there's still
hope for the 9th! Keep praying, please!!! :)

Well, that's it for this week! I just want to say that I. LOVE. Being

and that we are his children. And I KNOW that Joseph Smith was a
prophet of God!

Love you all!!!
