Week 23 - World Cup

Hola everyone!  This past week has been great!!  We've been on a steady track of improvement! This little rock is fantastic!!!  First off, I'd like to give thanks to the little newspaper stand right next to our apartment that always has the scores of the World Cup the next morning.  On to the work!  

Last preparation day, we went to Mont de Toro, the highest point on the island. Which isn't really saying much because we hiked it in about 30 minutes.  Took some pictures. [See below]  It was a blast!  But the miracle from that day is we got contacted by a lady and her boyfriend in the street!  They had just moved here and she is a less active member but wants to come back. She's Bolivian and her SPANISH boyfriend is really interested in the church!  It was so amazing!  
As you all know the World Cup started this week and it has been so much fun to see random national jerseys every once and a while.  Can you all do me a favor and watch the USA game tonight and cheer for me? {Sorry, a little late on our part}  That would be very appreciated! 

Also we are teaching this great guy named Paco who has been an investigator for about 5 months now.  He's Spanish and he knows so much about the church and should be baptized but isn't married....He's super funny and a fantastic guy.  He speaks basically perfect English, among several other languages. He was a personal waiter to some rich guy and has traveled the world. He also played for the Barcelona B team when he was younger so he was pretty good back in his day.  Just to give you an idea on where this guy is at, he studied and came to a lesson one day with the question:  Is Missouri the New Jerusalem?  He is a great guy!  I hope he gets baptized!!  

Anyway, I'm running short on time, but I love you all and hope you have a great week!

PS I bought a world cup sticker book with all the teams and matches in it for 3 euros...          [see picture below]
