A taste of home...

We were in Madrid on a rainy day and decided to get some yummy hot chocolate at Starbuck's. This is Dana Nelson. She's from Idaho and has just turned in her mission pictures. Two fun facts.... Dana worked at a Lake called "Jacob Lake" in southern Utah a couple summers ago and visited the Visitor's Center in St. George a few times. She says she remembers a few sisters bearing their testimonies each time she went, we've decided that I was one of those sisters :). ALSO, Dana's father served a mission in Spain 30 years ago and baptized a young man who's married in the temple with a son on a mission. Dana gets to live with them here in Spain!

Elder and Sister Maxfield were in Spain renewing their Visas to live in Russia. They've been serving as full-time missionaries for over a year. It was a very special surprise to be able to see them!

One of the beautiful streets of Madrid...

The Gardens in Sevilla

We got to spend time walking through these gardens... is smelled as pretty as it looked! This was one of my favorite places out of the whole trip!

Spain = Beautiful!

Lucy and me in a town called Consuegra... beautiful isn't it!

Madrid MTC

I've known Elder Jordan Rands (left) and Elder Alex Woods forever and they are basically like brothers to me! They are serving in Spain and I got to see them at the MTC while I was volunteering there! It was easy to see they love being missionaries. You all know my mission means so much to me, so it makes me SO happy to see them embarking on one of the greatest adventures they'll ever have!
