Weeks go by days

Wow, I cant believe its already the 26th! It seems like just 2 weeks ago I was talking with you all on Skype.... Ay, so yeah this week was pretty good, it was busy like always. more splits, long meetings, baptism, awesome investigators and Fun times. So yeah Tuesday we had along meeting called MLT,(not to be confused with MLC) MLT happens every other transfer, and it is with all Zl, dl, Stls and we talk about more Mission wide things like trainings, teaching and How to be a better leader. It was a great meeting other than the fact I had a Extremely Horrible headache and I could not focus well, I wrote some things down, but mostly I was just trying to relax and get my headache to go away. Anyways then we had a little meeting about LA English, that was mostly just to show how our units are doing, and if we should keep them or, cut them. I thought we should cut them, but our unit said otherwise, So we will be keeping it on Trial and changing things up to see if we can get more people there. Then Wednesday we had exchanges, with Elder Santos. He's from Mexico, but grew up in Arizona, mostly Maricopa and chandler, He's really cool! I learned a lot from him  He is an awesome teacher and really focus's in on our investigators, We had Dinner with a super cool family that night that is just awesome, super active and love missionaries. Then we taught ***! He is super awesome. He has a really strong desire to Get baptized. He really is doing good about drugs. As far as we know he's been clean for a few weeks now.  we Talked a lot about repentance and how that is the only way he is going to make this change permanent. Then We tried visiting some others but, no luck... anyways Thursday we were back together We cleaned up a little more in the apartment, it gets so messy so quickly... mostly because its so small... but we live with it.  Then we went to the church to work on a spreadsheet with all of the info on the zone, Baptisms, recent converts and baptismal dates. then we Had a baptismal interview for someone that was going to get baptized in our area! yeah I don't know if I told you, but we had a baptism yesterday! It was awesome! ***** was super ready to be baptized. 

So yeah we had that and she passed! It was great. and then we had dinner with The *** family! they are super awesome and we love visiting with us. basically its a recent convert family and they really do will with a lot of things, they come to church faithfully and also they are the guardians of 3 kids, a 12 year old, 5 and then a 6 month old. They are super busy but Are loving everything about the church. I love them so much, And then Friday we went on another exchange. With Elder Barker, He is super cool. We had a fun time up in Hollywood! its an interesting place. We talked to a lot of people. And I walked right by paramount studios. Elder Barker says that famous actors always walk out of there like everyday. Then Saturday we just tried to visit a lot of potentials. then, we ran into a former investigator and talked to him and, he says the book of Mormon is true, he knows it is. so we set up another day to come by. It was cool. But nothing else really happened. We Visited the ***'s and they are progressing super well and we taught them about the Law of Chastity and it went really well, and she isn't breaking it (as far as we know) but she didn't commit very strongly to live it, I think mostly because she has a boyfriend, and she is married to someone else.  We told her that we would help her out with that. we set up a visitor center trip this next week and then they also came to the baptism on Sunday.

 At church we had lots of good things happen, The baptism went smoothly, and *** and The *** came, it was super good, and then at the end, The *** asked what do we need to do to get baptized? we told them that they are already doing what they need to be doing, and we would talk more about it at the visitor center :) We will hopefully be setting a date with them this week, Finally

Well I hope everything is going good, and that you all will Have a great week! I love you all, and hope that you continue In the right way! Reading the Book of Mormon and Always having a smile! :p
