Beautiful Bilbao Has Hard Working Missionaries

Some of you might recognized this beautiful modern building with the wonderful red bridge.  This is the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.  We found ourselves 1 hour early to the President's interview of the Bilbao District.  It was a beautiful day and the plaza surrounding this museum is fantastic.  It sit's right on the river and that incredible bridge next to it.  We haven't had time to go in but some day.....
In front of the museum sits the puppy.  It is totally done up in flowers.  In the winter time it is just covered in greenery, but in the summer, it is the best flower garden around.  Hey the Rose Parade is going to have to take a look at this.
Here they come, two very hard working missionaries and one of their investigators, Jorge, who has a baptismal date for next week.  This is Elder's Castellon and Smith.  Elder Castellon shared with me their approach to people and how they find and teach.  They are incredible as they find and teach the 1st part of the first lesson and get a new contact to pray.  He did a complete role play with me and he even slowed down his spanish so I could understand.  It was a very powerful experience.  They are such a great companionship.  Elder Castellon is from Alicante, Spain and Elder Smith is from Taylorsville, Utah.  Their smiles are great and their love for the work is incredible.

  2. You don't know this but the dog in front of the Museum in Bilbao is a popular place for a young man to propose to his sweetheart. There is so much HISTORY in that part of the world. Those of us from the U.S. can not imagine all the cultures and armies that have traveled in that part of the world. The bones of St. James are in the mission too!

    One thing I like about the culture there is rather than the American idea of some of us workaholics who love to work.. The Spaniards work to LIVE
