Pretty great week in Valencia. We had some great miracles, and some great things happen. First of all Mayra could not be baptized because she had to work so we set a new date for this Saturday. A couple great experiences this week.
1. Elder Jones had to go into Barcelona to get his Card and so did Elder Streiff´s companion so he got to come down and work with me. It was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with him and to work with him. I love that kid! While I was working with him we taught a less active that Elder Jones and I had found on the street that hadn´t seen missionaries for more than a year. We taught her and as we taught you could see the light that was missing in her life that she wanted back so bad. It was one of the most spiritual lessons that I had ever been in. What an incredible experience.
2. We contacted a super old lady on the street the other day and as we were talking with her she started to lose interest and as we were about to leave, her daughter came around the corner and asked what we do. We presented ourselves and she asked if we could come over another day. We passed by and taught them the restoration and they gladly accepted the message and are reading in the Book of Mormon. I am sure you will hear more about them.
3. The miracle street contact that came to church last Sunday we met with and taught her the restoration and invited her to be baptized and she accepted with ease. She is a women prepared of the Lord. 
Valencia is treating me well even though it isn´t cold and I feel like it should coming up fast on Thanksgiving and all but I´m not complaining. It has just been a wonderful two weeks and I am realizing how many prepared people there really are here. 
I hope everything is going well over there. It seams to me like it is. I love all of you and I am praying for you that everything is ok and that you can all enjoy this wonderful time to serve and be served. I wish you all the best of times and many opportunities to help others and share the gospel.
