Elder Edholm -- week 40

*This letter was well worth the wait!  I finally got pictures!  They are from his trip to see where Christopher Columbus landed when he came in 1492*
Well as you can already tell, I had an awesome week this week.
First off, that family that I have been telling you guys about, the Espinosa Family, they're amazing, they're just the family that every missionary wishes for. We had a family home evening with them and a member shared Alma chapter 32. And the husband shared an experience about how the gospel is really changing his life. They always tell us how grateful they are for teaching them, it's just moments like that that really make the mission worth it.
We got a reference from a member from a guy that he always plays basketball with and we had our first lesson with him. I felt inspired to ask him what he like most about the church when he visited it before. He told us how he loved the union and the families. He then shared how he has been feeling so alone lately, but just being inside the chaple makes him feel so much better. He told us that when he's playing basketball outside the church and he comes in for a drink of water he can feel so much peace. He told us how is wife is in Panama and his situation with his kids aren't the best but that he really wants his family on the right path. We then invited him to be baptized and without hesitation he accepted.
Here is a picture of me at the colonial zone. We also went to the temple today and that is always great.
