The Key

Hola mi Familia y Amigos,

Okay well I dont have much time. But I would like to share a short story with you all.

Me and my companion got home to our house one night and realized that we still had 30 minutes left before 9 PM. We were tired, hungry. did I say we were tired? Because we always are. Ha ha.

But I really felt like we should still go out for the last bit of time to contact in the streets near our house. So we did.

We were just walking around... nobody was in the streets. But I saw a glimmer in the street for a second and realized that we had passed a key. (Honestly the streets here arnt clean and we pass a lot of things. Ha ha.) But then I got a strong impression to pick it up. Shoot we passed it. But I stop and told my companion "I just saw a key." I know it sounded odd. And if she would have said it to me I am sure I would have thought. "And your point is..." But I told her, lets find it. So we took out our ghetto little cellphone and started searching for it.

An old man passed by and asked what we were searching for. We told him. And he kind of laughed like good luck finding it. But then my companion saw it again. And then old man pointed to the sky and said, "God helped you find it!"

Okay we had the key... now what?! I said, "Lets just knock at this house infront of where we found it and ask them if it is theirs... We knocked, they quickly replied that it was not their key. But that we could ask her neighbor. So we went to her neighbor and knocked... nothing. Then with PERFECT timing. They drove up in their car. With I'm sure the though of "Oh great! The Mormons." But before giving our we are the Missionaries speil. We told them we found a key and were wondering if it was theirs. They were SO excited! They said they had looked everywhere for that key. That they drove like an hour to search for it in another place also.

After being super greatful and before we could even ask them. They told us that we could come by to share our message with them. They are super great!

God works in mysterious ways sometimes. But just imagine if they get baptized all by picking up a key! (Well listening to impressions of the Spirit.)

I love you all and I hope you have a very fantastic week!  :)

Love Always,
