Cool news, church attendance this week doubled!  We have about 20 people in our branch and this week between investigators, in-actives, and friends of members we had a little over 40 in attendance.  Our little chapel was filled! I truly love them. After church every Sunday there's no rush and everyone piles on/around the two little green couches that sit in the entryway to talk and help us make plans with investigators for the week. 

I love the gospel.  President Pack couldn't have said it better when he told us, "People are happier when they do it the Lords way." 

I hope everyone is healthy and happy!

Buen Dia! 

Something a very good friend of mine told me is that God will take you as you are prepare you. When I was called to be STL In the Islands I almost died. I was so nervous (and excited) because I knew my new responsibilities would include presenting in front of large groups of people, and flying (on average) every two weeks. If you did not know, I DREAD public speaking and I HATE the feelings of turbulence when you fly! So Tuesday night we flew into Madrid for Leadership Counsel and stayed at the mission home until Wednesday morning when we had our meeting, that same night we took our short two hour flight back to the Canary Islands and planned in the plane, what we would present in Zone Training the next morning. Thursday we did our Zone Training with all the Missionaries on la Gran Canaria, Friday morning we did another zone training through Skype with all the other missionaries throughout the islands, and right after that we finished off our weekend with exchanges! Crazy week to start of the transfer and it's only the beginning! Am I still scared of public speaking? Yes, but did God get me through it? Yes! God takes you as you are, prepares you, is patient and loving when you fall, and gives you experiences and opportunities to become better. 
Sorry there's a lot of mission-lingo, hopes this makes sense. Love you!!!

Esta semana fue llena de sorpresas!  Primero, cumplí un año en la misión!  Segundo, desde ahora, estaremos las únicas en nuestra área.  Los Elderes y el compañerismo matrimonio se marcharon y ahora solo tenemos nosotras y los 20 miembros fuertes de Telde!  Amo la rama y la gente y su amor me ha cambiado. Sinceramente me siento que he experimentando "el cambio de corazón" (Alma 5:14,26).  Ellos me han enseñado mucho y aunque sufren mucho, siempre tienen sonrisas y una fe inquebrantable.  Es increíble. 

También, por todos quienes me escriben, gracias por su amor y sus correos!

This week was buenisima!  We all traveled to the island of Tenerife to have Zone Conference with the Packs, and it was the first time that our whole zone had come together (because we're spread out all over the islands)! 

Loving our investigators and they are progressing!  We had a family of 4 come to church on Sunday and they LOVED it, and sacrificed a lot to come.  We also had a couple and a young man attend.  I love these people with all my heart!  The Church is true.
