Hold Onto Your Seats

Alright! So this week has been crazy so hold onto your seats! This week we decided to make a ton of cookies again for the activity that we were going to have on Sunday to watch a movie called Meet the Mormons. Obviously this was a bad idea because the cookies slowly disappeared throughout the week. We had a pretty lesson filled week and it was great! It's been so nice to see the progress that has happened in valdepeñas and I love it because it really does show that of your working hard the blessing will come even though it might not be in the moment they will come. The big news came Friday night when we received a call from President Andersen. He told us that he wanted to call us because this transfer was going to be crazy for the both of us. Hermana Gale and I are both leaving Valdepeñas and Elders are going to come. Hermana Gale is going down south to open up an area and I'm going to Elche to open an area and Im also going to be training again. Surprise! In all honesty I'm pretty nervous but I know that this is happening for a reason and I know that I can do it as long as trust in the Lord but the nervousness is definitely there! It was really hard to say goodbye to the members and our investigators. Even though I wasn't in valdepeñas very long I really love this place! On Sunday we had a nice tearful and emotional activity but it was a great way to end the transfer and to leave this wonderful place! Thanks for your emails and letters! Keep em coming!
Have a great week!

A Melon Every Time

So like most great weeks it's a bit hard to know exactly where to
start! On Monday we had a great lesson with one of our Menos Activas.
I love seeing how the spirit works on people and how they can
change. During the lesson she told us about things that she had done
in here past and how she felt  that God doesn't want to hear from her.
I felt so privileged to let her know that our Heavenly Father wants to
hear her and loves her. She is so sweet and gave us a big bag of
grapes! So this week we decided to go to one of our pueblos to visit
some old investigators and found this gypsy family and by that I mean
we went into the house with 12 people and taught them. They where so
sweet and told us the next time we came over they would cook us
Romanian food!  And like always I run out of time to write but a
couple last second things. So this week we've eaten around three
melons because one of investigators gives us a melon every time we
have a lesson. Everyone gave us fruit this week but I'm definitely not
complaining. I love being out here and having the chance to have all
of this experiences!
Have a great week!

Starting To Get a Little Bit Chilly

So this week nothing too crazy except traveling to Malaga for a zone meeting which takes about two week days because we left Thursday night and came back Friday night and worked for about an hour. I got to see Hermana Viglione which was awesome. I gave her a giant hug! I miss her a lot! I also got my hair cut Monday. I actually wanted to cut more but the member who cut it said I was loca to want to cut off that much but it was still a good bit. It's starting to get a little bit chilly which is exciting. This week was a little bit rough because we lost a lot of work time but this week should be travel free so it should be pretty good! Anywho that's about it! Have a great week you guys!

When you are backed up to the wall that will make you test your faith
May I suggest that you will  find yourself completely safe
The Angels all about you are armed with unmatched power
And how our Father wants to send them oh this very hour 
You have stumbled and you have fallen many times before 
But who was there to pick you up from the unforgiving floor?
 His hand out stretched and smile unfeigned has reached out tenderly 
And each time the quiet whisper of "I'm here to set you free"

So when I feel that my faith just may start to waver
I quickly look up and plead to Him for this heavenly favor
The darkness runs unhappily against the overwhelming light 
That always rushes to my aid in this continuous fight 
For I am on the Lord's side so why should I ever fear?
Our Lord our God our savior will forever be near

Love you all so much!
