Subject:  Exciting news to come!

Hey! This week has been awesome. We have been stressing and prepping and everything has gone really well. 

Cool experience: about 2 weeks ago we fasted. It was a Wednesday. It was really hot and we were really thirsty. But it was really good. I prayed to find someone ready for the Gospel that day. Well I didn't find anybody. But I did make a few calls of some people I had contacted before. At first Lourdes hung up but, I called again and set up an appointment. Well we talked with her later that week and she was really, really awesome. She's had a really hard life and believes a lot in God. She was sad that she wouldn't be able to come to church the next day. Well lo and behold she came!!! We were sitting in Sacrament Meeting and saw her there all by herself! So I went and sat by her. Miracle of the fast. Hna White also received a family miracle from that.

Best thing: Marta got baptized on Saturday. I really, really wish I had pictures, but I don't. Her 3 kids came from Alicante and are so cute and so happy to be with her. She gave a really strong testimony at the end. It was a great day. She was confirmed a member yesterday.

Our English class is growing. It's fun to teach and I think they're learning.

Gabriela dropped us. She's not ready.

Jose Luis-- the older Venezuelan-- tried to drop us on Saturday. But we weren't letting him go that easily. He said he wanted to stay Christian. We explained that we were Christian and helped him understand that there were many more blessings in store for him (see su potencial su privilegio --Mormon messages for more information) he agreed to continue reading the book of Mormon.

Hna White was transferred to Alcobendas! Wow, it's been a great, hard, fun transfer.

Love you all!
Tune in next week for more news
Hna Christensen 
Also, Mercedes in Barrio 3 was baptized on Saturday. Wow.
