October 14, 2013 - Elche, Espana

Hola todos!!!

Well, here is the news. Haha, looks like I was wrong about taking a break. The Lord never lets us as missionaries do that. I am scared out of my mind for this next adventure. So, I am going to Dos Hermanas. It´s a town right outside of Sevilla. I am going to be companions with Hermana Hodson and we are the Sister Training Leaders for that side of the mission. I am not going to lie, I am pretty nervous about it. But I know the Lord will help me. The cool thing is that I will be doing splits with all the Hermanas in the area of the mission so I will get to see new places and work with new people. I just hope I can help the Hermanas over there in any way cause I feel like I have way too much to learn still. I will just have to kick it up and work harder. It will be good for me. So that´s the news on where I´m going. The cool part is that I have been there before! I went on splits with the Sister Training Leader there when I was serving in San Fernando. So it´s kind of cool! I´m excited but I am really sad about leaving here. I can´t stand thinking about leaving my companions. Every time we talk about it, we start crying. It is going to be the worst thing in the world to leave them. Gah, I don´t want to! But it´s where the Lord wants me.

So back to this week. Kind of funny...we were a reference for Jehovah's witness. It was super funny. They came to our door and told us that people had recommended us to talk with them. The best part was when they saw our badges. Oh, their faces were priceless!!! They pretty much flew out of there.

A couple of cool things happened this week too. We were trying to find an old investigator that was in our records that caught our attention. We went to the apartment and the lady opens the door and looked like she was going to die from being so overwhelmed. She did NOT want to see us there. We asked about her, and found out the woman we were looking for moved a long time ago. She kept looking around trying to get us to leave and then something awesome happened. We started talking about how the Book of Mormon would help her change her life and her face completely softened. There was a complete change in her eyes. It was incredible. After we were done testifying, all she said was, ¨Tell me what to do.¨ We were all very surprised. It was so stinking cool! I wish I could work with her, but Hermana Hubbard and Cameron are going to do great.

Also, a menos activo named Johnathan who has never listened to us all of a sudden told us he wanted to get baptized. He told us he wants to change his life and start new, but he doesn´t feel worthy for anything. It was so cool! Repentance is the best. So we are working with him too. Awesome miracles!

Haha, another funny thing, we came back to the apartment at night and I kept digging and digging and digging in my pocket for keys to the house, but holy mother of gondor, there were none. I forgot the keys!!!! And it costs 50 euros to call a guy to do open the door lock. So we rang our neighbor and I asked if it were possible if we could jump his outside wall to get into our house. He looked at us like we were insane. But he let us. So we got a ladder and I climbed up and jumped over to the other side and climbed through our window. It was quite the Laura adventure.

Alright, all well, that´s all for now. Thanks to everyone for everything! All of your prayers and support really help me out here. I love serving the Lord and serving the people here in Spain. It is such a blessing! Love and miss you all!!!
