Best Week Ever!

Our tree
Hello family!
We had an absolutely great week!
Monday, we had a lesson with a man named Jose Lopez. He is 18 and from Spain. Meeting him was a miracle. Last Friday was a holiday in Spain and so busses were running at super late times. We see our bus and start sprinting to make it and miss it  by seriously 2 seconds! So we had to wait 30 minutes for the next and on this next bus was Jose! Elder Tanner starts talking to him because he had met him before. This man pulled a knife on his old companion! But don't worry he's safe now!!! We taught him the restoration and it was just a super amazing lesson and after we introduced the Book of Mormon. He then said and I feel like I should pray about it too. We were both blown away! We left that lesson just super happy. We met with him again Wednesday and we taught about reading praying and going to church. We call it OLA (orar, leer, asistir.)  After we talked about the reading, we asked how it went for him and he said he really liked it and shared it with his brother! Then I asked if he believed that it was true and he said yes! We set a baptismal date for the 28th but he didn't come to church so we have to move it.

On Tuesday, we had another lesson with Elena, the lady with 2 sons on missions. She said she feels the spirit and wants to be baptized but not until until her son gets home in January and does something but we don't know what it is. It's just sad to see her be waiting when she knows its true.

Thursday, we had another HUGE miracle. We were passing by some people listed in our area book and then we hear Elders! We turn and see a man. He waves us over, so of course we go. His name is Yemil and he had just returned home from visiting England, where he will be serving his mission next month. He has 2 members of his family who are non members, so of course he invites us over. We met with them 3 times this week and one of them came to church! Her name is Leidy and she is 17.  We talked to her Sunday night and she absolutely loved church! She said she felt so welcome! We were so happy to hear it. We will continue to work there.

We worked a lot with these 3 people this week. They were a huge focus. It paid off really well and we were blessed for it. We also worked with our less actives. We worked with five this week and it was really good a couple came to church!. Iris also went to Madrid 9th ward this week so I was able to talk to her. It's really nice to see the hard work we put in pay off. Some days get really tough but it's those good days that we remember and that make it count. Very good week.

This was our week, one of mine and Elder Tanner's best. Full of blessings and miracles. Have a great week and I will talk to you Wednesday!!!!!!!!! Remember 5.30 here 8.30 California any family member can be there if they please. Google Chat. 40 minutes.

Love You!!!!!!!
