Week 82: Zaragoza, Manlleu, Muslim Miracles, and lazy Jehovah's Witnesses!

Hello family!

Well I'm off to Zaragoza in an hour! Just before that I'll just list a
few of the crazy things that happened this week.

First off, after visiting two towns, Manlleu and Tona, we've found
three Muslims who want to hear the gospel. And these aren't just any
Muslims, these are ones who actually were glad to hear our message,
and one of them even accepted the Book of Mormon to read in order to
find answers about his struggling family (the ex-wife of Abeljifit wants
to take the three children to France with the in-laws).

Second, we found some lazy Jehovah's witnesses. Case in point, we were
walking to a visit in a group of apartments when we found this
Ghanaian lady in a skirt (the only people who wear skirts here in Spain
are very old ladies, Jehovah's witnesses, and of course the sister
missionaries), and we knew she was a Jehovah's Witness. So we started
to talk to her, asking how the day was, etc, when all of the sudden she
gave us a flyer and pointing to the website says "I've finished my
proselyting hours today, go to the website", and then just walked away
impatiently. Even if it's in the middle of preparation day almost
100% of missionaries would teach someone with interest. The church is
true people!

Another miracle happened yesterday as we were visiting the members.
Linara, the Brazilian investigator we had met back in January, who
hasn't answered the door or phone in three months, called! Apparently
she was scared to answer because the police were visiting daily to
check up on her visa and she's been working interna all though the
week. She couldn't call since she couldn't find the phone number, but
she found it again when we left an invitation to our night of the
nations. Because of that card she was able to call, and now she's
going to meet on Thursday with us, and come back to church! Sadly I
won't be there to see the baptism (she loves the church and everything),
but I'm so excited to see the Lord working in the work!

It's been a sad few days of saying goodbye to my family here in
Vic (I'll miss them so much, especially the members in Ripoll. The
Merchan's, Abel and Pilar are the best!). But I am pumped to see what
Zaragozas like and to be in my trainer’s old area once again (two in a

Here's a quote by a talk I love by Robert D. Hales on personal
revelation; "I testify that on the hillside or the meadow, in the
grove or closet, now or in the eternities to come, the Savior’s words
to each of us will be fulfilled: “Ask, and it shall be given you;
seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”
While we are commanded not to seek after signs, we are commanded to
“seek … earnestly the best gifts.” These gifts include the Holy Ghost
and personal revelation. That revelation will come “line upon line,
precept upon precept,” as the Savior said, and “unto him that
receiveth [the Lord] will give more.”

Love and miss you all!
