Week 68 - El Dia de Sant Jordi

This week we were able to basically run a ward activity for El Día de Sant Jordi.  So to explain what the Day of Saint George is in Cataluña, basically the girls are given roses and the guys are given books.  Every year they set up a market in the rambla (street or boulevard) to sell books and roses here in Vilafranca.  So the bishopric asked the town hall for a book selling spot in the Rambla in Vilafranca and we gave out copies of the Book of Mormon for free.  We gave away more than FORTY copies of the Book of Mormon.  The first councilor and I even got to give a Book of Mormon to the MAYOR of Vilafranca!!  It was incredible being side by side with the members talking to people about the Book of Mormon and the Church of Jesus Christ.  It was a great experience.  
Also BREAKING NEWS:  The Spain Barcelona Mission is going to be 1 of the 15 missions in Europe who gets to be part of the continued testing program for iPads in missionary work!  The Spain Barcelona Mission as well as the other two missions in Spain will be the first Spanish-Speaking Missions to use digital devices!  There is no set date on when we will receive iPads but we have a conference explaining a bit more about them on May 5th.  Well I've got to go but have a great week and read Matthew 6:25-33, it's a great chunk of scriptures.
