June 30 - Short message. Sorry. :(

This week has been Awesome!! Not even kidding. It was like one of those miracle missionary weeks where it is really hard and satisfying and by the time you get to the end of the week you look back and see a load of success!! It was Great. Sunday was a miracle day. An investigator couple came to church that we had dropped about a month ago because they weren´t married. Yeah so they showed up with desires to get married in a few months and want to be baptized. they have 8 kids!! :D But the kids are all already baptized haha. We also had three other people in church. One of them is going to be baptized in 2 weeks. Then right after church we pulled one of our investigators into a room and we taught her and invited her to be baptized on the 20th. Shes down for it :D Then later in the day we were supposed to teach this girl english class but she had to catch a train so she took us to her friends house to teach her and we met her whole family. They are a family of 5 from Armenia. It was incredible because we sat down, started talking about their beliefs when the mom said, "I have been waiting to be baptized because my children and I have never been baptized in any church but we know it is important." That is music to any missionaries ears. So we invited them to be baptized on the 5th of August!! The Mom was first to Say Yes. :) She looked so happy as she was feeling the spirit and accepting baptism. The Daughter is 17 and also said yes but wants an answer from God first. It´s a good thing that God always answers yes :D

But yeah. It was a good way to top off the week. We then caught a train sunday night and now we are in Malaga :) It is great. I love the mission. The Spirit is so strong all the time! The work is so fun. There is always a ton to do :) Love it.

Oh we also did splits with the AP´s. It was super fun because the AP who came with me is one of my best friends from when we started the mish.

Anyway, stay firm and act on the answers you recieve from our Heavenly Father. 
Love Elder Powell
