I apologize for the change in P-Day once again this week we are changing our P--day to today, Friday because tomorrow we are going to translate for a self-sufficiency conference in Madrid. Next week we will be going to the temple on Wednesday so I will be changing P-Day for the week to Wednesday.
This week has been another normal week in the office. Lots of work to do and little time in which to do it. But it is somehow getting done and the mission hasn´t fallen apart yet so we are feeling pretty good. I have been working this week on a more efficient way to manage our bills and have really enjoyed the work that I have done with that. It has included many meetings with the gas company and has been an interesting leap into a real world job.
We have also been trying to get pisos for the new areas that have been opened and will be opening up in the coming weeks. It has kept me busy but we have definitely seen the Lord´s hand in the work. A couple weeks ago I sent one of the senior couples to Puerto de la Cruz in Santa Cruz de Tenerife with a list of Real estate agencies and a list of requirements for a piso there. We prayed that they would be able to find something because after several weeks of looking online I had not been able to find anything of consequence. They arrived and found that most of the real estate agencies were closed for the month of august, but after some digging around and finding a phone number on a flyer for an apartment being rented out where able to get ahold of the agent. He took time off from his vacation and went to show them two pisos. The second one that they saw was a perfect match to what we needed. We signed the contract on that piso this last week.
Other than that, this week has been a lot of running people around, paying bills, working with dueños, and all of the fun implied by my job.
I love you all,
