On a recent missionary preparation day, we (Scott, Beverly, and Elder and Sister Jones, fellow temple missionaries) happened upon four MTC elders in the local metro station. They were on their way to Domino's Pizza (yes, there is one near here in Madrid!). We enjoyed talking with them for a few minutes.

These elders can also be seen on two videos that Scott uploaded to YouTube. The links to the two videos are https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuBwBJtyao0 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMwFs0VKgOY.
The next Sunday, Scott and Beverly invited two sister missionaries to dinner. They currently live just around the corner from us, but will be moving soon to be closer to their assigned area.

After our dinner of chicken fajitas and fruit salad, these Sisters each shared a favorite scripture and bore their testimony. It was touching to feel their spirit, hear of their wonderful investigators, and know of their dedication to the work in Madrid.
We love the young missionaries, whether they are just passing through Madrid during their short stay at the MTC or working here as part of the Spain Madrid Mission.
