Well actually mostly just Adventists and Catholics.  But the most interesting one is Maria, an Adventist.  She's been an investigator for at least a year.  She got really mad when I told her that her baptism isn't valid in the eyes of God, but she still insisted on feeding us dinner.  She fed us dinner today, too.  She's fun to teach, but also hard because she is so Bible-heavy.  She asked on Sunday, "Where does it say in the Bible that Christ came to the Americas?"  My companion and I looked at each other like, there is something fundamental that she isn't getting here.  Other things she doesn't like/ doesn't understand/ doesn't believe - baptism for the dead, authority/priesthood, prophets, Sunday...

On Saturday we both came down with colds, and so we were walking around San Sebastian basically like zombies.  But we found two new investigators who accepted the invitation to get baptized!  Now the only struggle (well, the biggest) is that we have conferences three weeks in a row.  I'm not sure who planned that.  They didn't plan well.

I'm very happy to be in San Sebastian, and always so happy to be in the mission!  I love this work.
