Hola Amigos y Familia!

The week was a little rocky with intercombios (aka exchanges...I think) the girls almost missed their plane but we're able to come last minute! The craziest/funniest things always happen in intercombios and lucky for us we get to do them every week! Your totally pooped after but it's worth it. Thank you for your love, emails, and prayers. The mission is amazing, God is great, people are crazy! Enjoy every second of every day. We are incredibly blessed and our possibilities are endless. Love you guys!

Hola Familia y Amigos!

Primero, me gustaría anunciar que mi amigo Luis que está en Madrid se bautizo!  Estoy muy agradecida por la oportunidad que tuve de conocerle a ser testigo del hombre maravilloso que llegó a ser. 

También me tocó hablar en la reunión sacramental esta semana.  Hable mucho de los principios del Evangelio pero solo quiero enfocarme en el primero que es la fe.  Siempre he escuchado que fe es una palabra de acción. Siempre he aceptado eso pero nunca lo entendía tampoco entendía como ponerlo en practica.  Me gustaría compartir un relato de la Biblia que se encuentra en Josué. En este capítulo Josué estuvo preparándose para dirigir los hijos de Israel a través del Río Jordán. Dense cuenta que Josué y los hijos de Israel tenían la promesa del Señor que podían cruzar el Río Jordán por tierra seca.  Lo que pasó después, Cuando ellos llegaron al río, en vez de esperar que las aguas se separen ellos ya han empezado a caminar en el agua!  Aprendí que ellos tenían tanta fe en el Señor y confiaron que el podría cumplir con sus promesas.  Después de que ellos caminaron en el río el agua se separó.  Seguramente ellos tuvieron dudas en mente en este momento pero nunca tuvieron miedo.  Ojalá que podamos actuar en fe, aunque no sabemos todo, sabemos que Dios nunca nos falla. 

Les quiero! Y que leen las escrituras!

12 Month - June

Fam and friends,

This past week we had Mission Leadership Counsel and they flew us and the Zone Leaders into Madrid to participate.  Five other girls and I stayed in the mission home over night with President and Hermana Pack and it was so fun getting to know them and their family! We got in late, changed into our jammies, and President and Hermana Pack cut us a watermelon and then showed us their fruit sticker collection.  I adore them.  The next morning the other missionary's joined us for the meeting and it was amazing!

I'm so grateful for this opportunity I have to serve, love, and improve.  I love the mission and I love our Father and Savior very much.  On the flight over Hermana Freestone leaned over and said, "God loves his missionaries so much!  Right now he's flying us from the coast of Morocco to Europe." We are very blessed!  This transfer we made big goals in counsel meeting and we're ready to help the rest of the mission achieve them.

Miracle this week, during her religion class in school, Alejandra (16 year old girl from our rama), stood up and shared her testimony on the atonement.  The teacher was interested and accepted the invitation to have the missionaries come teach the class.  Of course under legal obligations we could not testify, but we could still invite the spirit.  We showed a very basic video about the Mormon church and then left the rest of the time open for questions.  We spent 1 1/2 hours talking and answering questions with the class! When the bell rang nobody got up to leave, instead they ran up to us with more questions!!!

Needless to say the islands are crazy!  I love our branch and the people here are bomb!
