Hola everyone! How are you all doing? Ah it is so good to hear from you each week. I love you all so very much. Can you believe that Octubre is half way over?! So crazy. This week was so much better than last week. The work is going well for my companion and I. We are working so hard and be as obedient as ever haha. We were blessed with finding so many new people to teach this week. And guess how we found them? Haha we talked to and contacted so many people on the street. It was great times. And my companion´s spanish is improving so much and I´m so proud of her. I am sad to think that I will most likely only have 6 more weeks here in San Sebastian with her. I love the people here so much! I know that as we continue to demonstrate our faith that the Lord will bless us and we will see many miracles. 
There is one miracle story that I want to share with you all. The other day we had about 1 and half of time where we didn´t have a cita or anything so we decided we were just going to go find someone on the street to teach. We walked over to a park and we spotted these to latino ladies sitting on a bench, so of course we went to go talk with them. We just went up and introduced our selves and started to get to know them and then we asked them if we could sit down and share a message with them and they actually said yes haha! We whipped out the libro de mormon and explained a little bit about it and shared a scripture with them. I can´t remember all that we said but I know the spirit was strong. After we finished with a prayer one of the women, Gloria, told us that it was inspired that we came. She told us that she had been searching for something spiritual in her life. I know that the Lord puts prepared people in our path who are ready to hear and accept the gosple. I am so excited to continue teaching these two wonderful women! 
Hmm I am trying to think of what else to tell you... Oh! I know! This Sunday the Paces came up to San Sebastian for church. And it was so great to have them here with us. And all week Hermana Reid and I have been working so hard to get our investigators to come to church. So Sunday morning we picked up a less active woman named Milagros and then we quickly dropped her off at the church and said hola to the Paces and then ran to pick up our investigator Samuel (18 yr old from Columbia). Haha and we barely made it to church on time! And then to make things better just after the hymn started our dear investigators Angelica and Onome walked in. It was a miracle. And it was a wonderful meeting for them to come to because it was fast and testimony meeting! After church we had a ward cousel meeting with the Paces and the stake president to discuss the need for a new chapel. We are so packed in our little building. The talked about the option of splitting the ward into two branches or just having 2 sacrament meetings instead of one. I´m not sure what they will do but I hope they do something so we will have room for everyone! 
Well that´s about it for this week! I hope I have not bored you haha. I know the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. And that it blesses our lives! I am so grateful to be a missionary. I love this work and I love my Savior. I hope you all have a wonderful week! I want you to know that I love you and I think and pray for you often. Un besaso!
