Hola everyone!! How are you doing? It was great to here from you again this week. It makes me so happy to know that everyone is alive and well. Can you believe how fast summer is flying by? It is almost august! But life is so great. 

This past week started out pretty slow but my good companion Hermana Hair and I kept on working hard and moving forward with faith. There may have been a little stomach flu in the middle of the week haha but we worked through it. But as we got to the end of the week it was apparent that we needed a big miracle on Sunday to be able to reach the goals that we had set at the beginning of the week. So we made a plan and called some members to help. And we prayed a lot. And then all of Sunday afternoon we went on splits with members and got to work! And it was awesome. We ended up getting in contact with some inactives in our area that we had no idea about before and now we will be working with. And we found some new investigators to teach! And we ran into investigators that we hadn´t been able to get in contact with in a while. We saw miracle after miracle, and at the end of the night when we got back together we found out the we had reached our goals! Ahh it was the best. Haha and we went to bed sooo tired last night. I guess what this whole experience taught me was that when we set goals, have faith, and do all we can do, God answers our prayers! 

Today was my last mission leadership council (haha I think that´s what you call it in english... It´s just concilio in spanish). And they gave me a chance to share what I have learned on my mission. It was really hard to sum it up in words. But I am so grateful for all that I have learned and experienced on my mission. And I still have time left!! Haha. Anyways, it was such a powerful meeting. I feel so grateful for the chance I have had to work closely with President and Hermana Pace. I love the Spain Barcelona Mission so much. 

I know that God knows us and loves us. And that everything in our lives happens for a reason. I am grateful for all of you and for the roles that you have played in my life. I hope you have a great week!
