We gotta switch it up this week due to transfers. I’m staying here in Valencia, but every companionship in our whole zone is changing. Basically, it is going to be a whole new zone. My new companion comes in later tonight and his name is Elder House. He’s from Utah and I think that he was in the army before serving a mission. I met him briefly in Vitoria a few times, but other than that I don’t know much about him. Just that he can do an insane amount of push-ups. Should be sick.
I saw the Lord’s hand this week … when we had an experience that was actually kind of funny as well as incredible. We met a kid this week that has moved here to be a nanny for a little while. He’s from America and really doesn’t know much Spanish. We got to know him at church on Sunday. Afterwards, he left to go find his car, that he had parked really far away. He didn’t know where it was. Being new to the area, he had dropped a pin (in the maps on his phone) to mark the location where the car was, but his phone only had about 5% battery left. He called us and told us he was by a park and looking for his car and that his phone was going to die and shortly after he said that the call dropped and his phone died. The four of us set out to go find him. We went to where we thought he was and looked for him. I even stood up on a bench to try and see him, but I couldn’t see him. Then we decided to say a prayer together even though we all had said individual ones. We said the prayer and just after finishing, I stood back up on the bench and miraculously saw him for a split second before he rounded a corner. We booked it over to him, and after a lot of searching, we ended up finding his car. It’s kind of a funny story, but after we found him we all just looked at each other with disbelief. Surely an immediate answer to prayer – which is truly a miracle because answers don’t always come immediately.
This week’s shout outs … go out to Elder Moulton, the Fam, the snakes, and man buns.
Graffiti of the week …
Stoked to be out here serving Jesus Christ, He is the reason I have everything in my life. He is my rock, He is my Redeemer, and He is the Head of this work and this church. The Book of Mormon truly testifies of Him and along with it, the Bible will bring us closer to God and Jesus Christ. Make Christ your partner and you cannot fail. Love you guys – stay sick.
