Last Saturday we were asked to sing at a baptism in Barrio 1 which is in Cuatro Caminos. We took the metro and came up and the GPS wasn't working on Bruce's toy. So we stood there on the corner trying to figure which direction to go and starting to get a little panicky because we only had 15 minutes to get there when up out of the metro came the Elders who are also assigned to that ward. So they walked us to the chapel. What a tender mercy.
Also, a couple of weeks ago our dear friend Erick came to visit. His work sent him here to deliver a speech and he had about 24 hours in Madrid. So he emailed us for our wish list for delivering postage free anything he could fit in his suitcase. (He had to bring 2 suitcases for an overnight stay, but was able to pack the little one into the big one for the return flight.) It was so fun to see Erick and talk to him and show him our apartment and temple square. The only bad thing was that his wife didn't come and that he couldn't stay longer! We felt so loved.

Here we are visiting in our apartment.
And finally we went to temple square and showed him the MTC and the temple.
We are so blessed!
