We Heard Someone Calling to Us

This week I wanted to share a couple of miracles that happened
with my companion and I this week. We were walking on our way to a
cita with our investigator and were a little disappointed because we
had been trying to bring a member with us to the lesson because we
knew we couldn't go in if there wasn't a women present (a rule that we
have as missionaries). We had about 15 minutes before the cita so we
decided to stop at an old investigators piso. We were looking for her
piso number when we heard someone calling to us. We looked up and a
member from our ward was walking towards us. She told us that she just
so happened to get off work an hour earlier and would love to come
with us if we had anything set in the next hour. We were speechless!
She ran home quickly to grab a sweater and we were able to have a
great lesson with our friend William and she was able to answer many
of his questions. A couple hours later we were walking down the street
when we ran into a lady that we had met before and started to talk to
her when Hermana Anderson and I glanced up and made eye contact with a
lady that passed by she smiled at us and continued on her way and was
about to turn the corner when she turned around and asked if we were
Mormons we told her yes and she began to tell us how she had been
baptized about a year ago and had stopped coming to church because of
problems that were happening in her home. She told us how she felt
that she needed to talk to us and wanted to start coming back to
church. These experiences were just such a testament to me that the
Lord really does place people in our paths. Some other highlights of
the week was a wonderful lesson with some new friends that told us
that they would ask God if these things are true. I feel that some of
the best lessons that I've had out here our the ones where I have
learned something myself while teaching. Our friend William was also
able to come to church this week and was instantly attacked with love
by the JAS(young adults). We were also able to have intercambios with
Elche(my old area) I just loved being able to see some of my old
investigators and their progress and of course to be with the lovely
Hermana Olsen. At consejo they talked about changing the way we do
intercambios and would like us to have the Hermanas come with us to
our area instead of one of us going to their area. The selfish part of
me was a little bit sad because I love being able go see other others
but I think it'll be a good change . Last Week I didn't really have the
chance to talk about consejo. Consejo is a meeting that is held at the
beginning of every month. We drove down to Malaga with the Murcia Zone
leaders and arrived 6 hours later and only stopped in Granada for a
bit to eat. I love road tripping! The meeting was all night and we
took a break to sleep and then continued the next morning. I love
being able to discuss with other missionaries ways we can help each
other and other missionaries.  These last couple of weeks have been
pretty hard with the passing of my grandpa but I have so blessed to
have the love and support of my companion and leaders out here in the
mission. I know that even though my grandpa has passed on I will have
the chance to see him again. I am so grateful that the pain and
hardships that we face are not permanent and we have a savior that
gives us this hope. I hope that all of you are doing well. I love you
