This week was a crazy rollercoaster of miracles, surprises, adventures, and everything in between. It was super fun. One great miracle that Elder West and I saw happened because we followed the Spirit and it yielded miracles.
Elder West had been wanting to go to a certain part of our area for a while, but we hadn't ever been able to because of other things that would come up. However, we finally just set aside the time to go, and we saw an amazing miracle. On our pass by list there is a menos activa with a note that she doesn't want anything, but we decided to try and go anyway, and when we knocked on her door, she actually invited us to come back again, gave us her cell number, and we talked for about half an hour in her doorway (there wasn't a man present so we couldn't go in) Well, later, we talked to some ward members about it, and they said that something must have changed, because just last month she didn't want anything, but now she does. Following the Spirit really is important, and even if the first few times that we try to we can't, at least we are showing the Lord we are trying. It was really great.
Also, this week there were the transfers, and so now that I am on the island of Menorca. I hope to be able to see more great miracles. The area here is absolutely exploding! My new companion is Elder Ponce. He is super great, and I can tell he will be a ton of fun to work with. He is from Ecuador, but lived in Madrid, and now lives in Belgium, so he speaks Spanish and French, but little English. I'm super excited to work with him. I flew out of Barce last night at 8:50, and now I'm here on a super tiny island in a super tiny city. It is a huge change from the packed Barcelona I'm used to!
So yesterday while I was waiting to leave we went to a museum, called the Cosmic Caixa, that is HUGE!!!! It has a flooded Amazon forest inside, with all the animals and everything, and its super neat...it also has a ton of physics stuff and a ton of stuff about the Mediterranean ocean....all on the bottom floor. Wait...how many floors are there? Ya...5. and how long did it take us to go through a half of the bottom one? Ya...2 hours. I HAVE TO GO BACK!!! Oh, and it was super cheap too. Best museum ever.
Anyway, I hope you all had a great week. Love you all!!
