Week 24 - Exile on the island!

Sorry for the short email this week, but we had transfers yesterday!  I'm staying in Menorca but they are taking two Elders out and combining our areas.  Now my new companion (Elder Dixon) and I have the entire island to ourselves!  crazy stuff!!  Hopefully I survive.  ;)  Anyway this island is the best and if you are traveling anywhere in Spain, I would suggest visiting it!  Although not until after I'm gone. 
Here is a miracle from last week:
This last week we saw a miracle through the help of the members. We had planned a branch activity, a comida del mundo {foods of the world} thing, and we made two dishes. We got there at 6 and waited for everybody to show up. Nobody showed. After an hour, one member, Miguel, showed up and asked where everyone was. We told him that everyone said they were coming, but no one was here yet. He then called Hermana Alejandra and she came right over after making her dish. She then proceeded to call EVERYONE and invite them. By 8 o'clock, we had 23 people there!!! It was incredible. The power of the members is so much more than they even know. We as missonaries had invited all of these people several times but all it took was a phone call from one member to get them going. That was a huge testimony builder for me! 
Everyone, help the missionaries, you have no idea how much power you have as members!!  Just like that one law company says, all it takes is "one call that's all!"

Love you all have a great week!
Con Amor,
Elder Jonson
