Our JAS had a Valentines Day party. We ended up with 5 investigators in the end. Not counting the missionaries, they outnumbered the members. I made a tree with photographs on hearts of the JAS members from past activities and some Origami hearts we made last week. We played games and ate. We were missing some of our core group for some reason but it was fun.
These are the ones who came on time. I got busy and didn´t take more photos.
|Elder Schmidtlein and Elder Bird from Santa Cruz taught Chari and she was baptized on Saturday also. We are sad to be losing Elder S. on Monday.|
On P-Day this week the Santa Cruz and La Laguna Missionaries and the 2 sisters from Los Cristianos went to Anaga with President Jackson and his wife, who were here for interviews. It was foggy, cloudy, windy and a little cool but we had a very fun day together.

First the bad. For about 3 weeks we have worried that Mike had Pancreatic Cancer. After a routine check the Dr. here found a 2 inch tumor on his pancreas. If you research this cancer it is pretty much a death sentence. We waited 10 days to see a doctor that spoke good English, which was a mistake because it gave us too much time to think and stress. On Thursday we found out that it is a fatty tumor on the outside of the pancreas and is not affecting the surrounding tissues. It is still a bit of a worry and next week we will know more about treatment, but for now we don't have to go home immediately. So this is the bad and ultimately the wonderful all wrapped up together.

We had a great FHE with our JAS group this week. We made flour tortillas. We mixed 4 or 5 batches of 12 and baked them in the frying pan. Everyone rolled and baked and we ate them with re-fried beans and pulled chicken and some with nutella. We had 4 investigators. It was a fun evening even if there was flour everywhere.
