May 20th letter

Hey fambam! We had a super fun zone activity in Los Alamos today and we got back late (the buses here are pretty sketchy) so I'll have to be quick! First off, thank you so much for all of those great emails this week! I got emails from aunts, grandparents, my wonderful parents, etc. I loved hearing from you all! My dearly beloved siblings....I'll be looking forward to hearing from you this next Monday! Sí or sí.
Quick request: Lacey or Mum, could you send me a recipe for chocolate cupcakes? Preferably from scratch. A ward member wants help making some (they don't exist in Chile). Also, when you get around to it, I would love some North American chocolate... ;)
We had a great miracle a few days ago as the Lord guided us in His work. We were working on the hill behind our apartments and were close to the house of an inactive family we had planned to visit later that evening. We weren't sure if we should just visit them now or go look for the house of a street contact we had done last week. If we went to look for Claudia's house, we'd have to do a lot of extra walking and backtracking. Unsure of what to do, we decided to say a companionship prayer together in the street. We bowed our heads and humbly asked for guidance. I felt prompted to visit Claudia despite how inefficient it would be. We arrived at her house and shared with her for about 7 minutes when her husband then arrived and they both had to leave. We headed back up the mountain and kocked on the door of the inactive family, who told us they had just barely gotten home. Had the Lord not prompted us where to go, we wouldn't have found anyone at home in either house and the whole evening would have been a loss. What a blessing that the Lord is serving this mission with me.
Daily seek for the Lord's guidance in all you do each day. He wants to be a part of each decision you make so that He can guide you and help you realize your full divine potential. Have a wonderful week! Love you!
Elder Long :)
