Well Hello Everyone!

Well Hello everyone!,


well this week was pretty good. Lets see. Tuesday we had iPad training. It was really good, but no we did not get our ipads yet, we still have to complete some online training today, then later this month we will get one, but the chances of me actually getting one are very slim, seeing I would only use it for about a month. so who knows, we shall see, but the thing about the training was good, it talked a lot about how we need to control how we use technology, and how the safeguards are in really in our hands, we choose how to use it effectively or not effectively. so the principles behind a lot of the things that we taught were good, and really can be taken into after the mission.  so that was good, then yeah, we had a lesson with some new people throughout the week, seeing that some of our investigators are not progressing and we are not visiting them as often. we met with ** and **, they are 2 kids we have been visiting, and we finally taught the mom (grandma) and she was nice, but we not for sure if she really wants to visit with us. We had a fun little story, we were looking for this potential and then this older lady comes out and she was like what do you do, we said we teach about Christ and his restored gospel and then she just goes on about how we are liars and from the devil. she was die hard catholic and she was not very nice, and she asked my companion if he was baptized catholic, he was like "yes, when I was a baby, but I didn't choose that and then some missionaries taught me and now im here" she was very offended by that and she basically told us were going to hell. we kindly said that we respect everyone and we hope other respect us too, and she scowled and us and then here husband was like "keep doing what your doing beasue its really good," then the lady was like "No! they taking people to hell" we just walked away.... it was fun! then we had a lesson with this girl named **, she's Christian and she just wants to learn more. We taught her at her work, and out side of the place they had a taco stand, so it smelled really good the whole time. But it was one of those Spanglish lessons. she grew up here, but speaking both and so both are extremely natural for her, so she would just go in an out of English and Spanish, it was fun! she says she doesn't want to change, but wants to learn, but at the end she was interested in reading and finding out more.

*** came to church again! it was great and she likes it a lot, we taught her the plan of salvation after church, then went to a baptism! she loved both and really likes to learn from them all! The people that got baptized this last weekend I have know for a long time. They had moved into Inglewood ward when I first was there at the beginning of my mission. and I saw him here and there when ever I would switch wards. they could never get baptized because they were living together and already divorced. but they finally got to be able to move out and get baptized, they were super happy!

We had a 2 lessons  with ** and ***  and they both went really well. they are reading and we set a baptismal date with them this week for the 5th of July! it was super fun! there is some sort of family situation, and she doesn't want to talk too much about it, which i'm fine with, but her husband cant come and stay at the house anymore and hes always in the hospital. But he is interested in listening to us!

 Well I hope you all have a great week! and Good beginning of summer! Stay strong everyone and remember what Christ says " If ye will have faith in me ye shall have power to do whatsoever thing is expedient in me." (moroni 7:33) that was a scripture I found that I really liked this week! With faith all things are possible, especially in his work!

I love you all!
