“Extra fasting is NOT an approved weight-loss technique.” --Elder Davis
Who: Talia and her husband, Hermana Wiseman and I.
What: A surprise eating cita. :/ She had asked us to come by at 7, so we did. She gave us a bowl of soup and we were full. She pulled out a giant plate and we almost died. Quick-thinking Hna. Wiseman kept talking to stall and then asked for Tupperware.
Where: Barcelona, member’s house.
Who: Sofia, Hna Wiseman, and I, a member & her RM friend.
What: The BEST plan of Salvation lesson I’ve ever experienced. She got it, we testified, the members shared, and she committed to come to church.
When: on my birthday
So it turns out . . . I’m very susceptible to the speech patterns of others, and adopt the phrases and intonations of others almost without realizing it. Elder Bean—“hmm”; Hna Stilson—“Pero Bueno”; Hna. Wiseman—“Can we just talk about . . ." Elder Maurer: “Follow The Spirit.”
Who: The crazy Catalunians, a motorcycle brigade.
What: A half-hour long parade of Catalan pride down the main street of our area. Everyone had flags, held up 4 fingers, and honked like crazy!
When: Saturday 27/6/15 ~8 PM
Where: C/Meridiana metro stop Sagrella, Barcelona
After 8 months on the mission, I’ve gained a great shoe tan. But for the first time in forever . . . I don’t have a swimsuit tan anymore.
