President discusses the mission consolidation of the Malaga and Barcelona missions, and that missionaries that speak only Spanish are to speak only speak only English after 10 p.m. each week.

I discuss the importance of trusting the Lord, living by the Spirit, and looking for miracles and tender mercies daily. Elders Fowler and Triana, the Zone Leaders of Barcelona, taught about how to have more effective personal studies.
