Madrid Bus Tour

Hey family!

We have had a great week!
I don't know what it is but when the ward mission leader chastises the entire ward during sacrament meeting on how they are not doing missionary work. Suddenly everyone starts helping! It's amazing!

On Tuesday, we took a member with us to a couple of lessons but they all fired.  So while with him, he tells us to follow him and he takes us to some of his friends houses! It was super cool! Because it was just a casual. "Hey, it's Agustin," and so they let us in and we were able to share our message. He led us to a super cool Cuban family. Super old but super nice. That same day we went over to Ricki's (ward mission leader) house and had a family home evening. We listened to President Monson's talk about obedience and he liked it a lot. He was able to go to the Saturday morning session of General Conference. We were listening in English and when we heard Elder Eyring's talk, we were super excited. Then we go down and find out that he could only stay for an hour. We are going to meet with him tonight and see if we are having a baptism on Sunday. We fear his doubts are getting in the way.

´´Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters—my dear friends—please, first doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith.8 We must never allow doubt to hold us prisoner and keep us from the divine love, peace, and gifts that come through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.´´ Deiter F Uchtdorf-Come Join With Us
We didn't have the chance to meet with Joy and Tristan this week sadly. They were busy during the week and didn't come to conference :(

We had a super amazing morning on Saturday right before heading to conference. We were just passing by some old investigators and people were just throwing themselves at us. We saw like 3 investigators and a couple members. Everyone was where we were! The first guy stopped us and told us that he had been meeting with missionaries but then they got moved and whoever filled the place never called. We are meeting with him now. Then, a lady stopped us and asked if we had a Book of Mormon I could give her so of course i had one right there in my hand for her full of pamphlets and all. I gave it all to her because she is from Madilla, a tiny part of Africa that Spain owns. There are no missionaries there and there used to be a tiny branch she went to but then the branch got closed. She was super amazing. I hope she can find a way into our church!

Another member helped out a ton this week. We were out working and our 7:30 visit failed us so we were wondering what to do. Just then we get a call inviting us to a FHE. We had no clue if there would be a non-member or what but we gladly accepted the invite. We get there and there was a non-member! It was super cool because the family that invited her they joined the church by being invited by a member to a FHE! She was super cool and we had a great lesson about the preisthood and tying it into General Conference and then the non member came to conference! It was so great. Sadly to say she lives in Parla, which is out of our area, but the Elders over there will do well with her. It's so great when the members are the ones that invite and we just teach the lessons!

This has been our great week. We hope we can have the rest of ours like this because if so there is going to be a lot of succsess here!

Hope every one had a great week and enjoyed conference. I love how last week I talked about every member reading preach my gospel then Elder Ballard talked about it. Elder Anderson and I were super happy. We may or may not have high fived right after... we totally did!

LOVE YOU ALL! Have a great week!
