Familia :)

Wade!!! Oh that was the best news I heard all week! And half of Spain
heard about it too :) Welcome to the world baby wade! Can't wait to
snuggle you soon. And Happy Happy Birthday to my sweet Daddy! I'm the
luckiest daughter in the world. Thank you for all of the pictures,
videos, and updates this week. Happy to hear that everyone is happy
and healthy. The best news of the week is that festivos are over!!!
Los Reyes was great and everything, but wow am I excited to get back
in to normal mode. Still a wonderful week though!

We have been focusing a lot on Ramber this week and I honestly still
don't know if he will be able to be baptized this week or not. We had
a Noche de Hogar with them last night and he volunteered to offer the
lesson. Without us saying anything, the topic he picked was baptism.
He is the best! It was a great lesson, but his mom wasn't too happy.
It's so hard because everyone in the room was on board except her! We
are praying for a miracle. We left the room laughing so i'm not
worried about any hard feelings, I just really want this for Ramber.
Yamil has helped a lot though. He has such a strong testimony and it's
been fun to talk with him in English!

Sonia is great. She has officially quit smoking, stopped drinking
coffee, broke up with her boyfriend, and is coming to church every
week instead of the Catholic church she went to before. Who is this
girl?! She is the most willing and determined person I have ever met.
We are planning her baptism for the 22nd and I know she can do it! We
just need a couple more weeks to make sure she is free from her
addictions. Pray for her!

Nicole is doing well. She hasn't been keeping up with her commitments
though, so we decided to just read with her this week. It was
incredible she understands everything! I seriously am shocked I don't
know where it is coming from haha but I think we made a big change
this week. She wasn't able to come to church this week though which
was a little disheartening, but we're working on it. She's so cute she
made a cake for my companion for her birthday, but it burned while we
were in the lesson haha whoops! It's the thought that counts :)

Remember Aga? The woman from Poland? She has a lot of things going on
and it is going to be a long road, but we taught the gospel of Jesus
Christ this week and it was such a powerful lesson. She wants to get
baptized but has SO many things in her past and doesn't believe that
she could ever be worthy of such an amazing thing. We assured her that
the Atonement was made for EVERYONE and that could be forgiven for
everything. She asked for a blessing of comfort and it went really
well. Thank you Elders! She has cut down her smoking in half and
stayed for all of church yesterday for the first time (she normally
can't go that long without smoking). She's the most selfless person I
know. She gave me shoes for absolutely no reason this week. I can't
handle how nice the people here are sometimes!

So there's just a few of the miracles we've seen this week. We're very
blessed that is for sure. Hard things happen every single day out
here, but we always come home feeling grateful for the experiences we
have been given and for the opportunity to learn from them. We have
fun things coming up too! We have concilio this week and then a world
wide missionary devotional the next. We are excited! It's a wonderful
time to be a missionary. Especially in Spain :) I love you guys and am
praying for you every day! Thank you for everything- have a great
