small earthquake

Last week was exciting. There was an earthquake Thursday morning around 4:45 and then another about half an hour later. They weren't to big 3.7 and 3.8 and they only last like two seconds. The first one woke all of us up, I thought it was my companion on the top bunk until another elder was like oh my gosh that was an earthquake. So we talked for awhile started to fall back asleep and were wakened by the second one. The only scary thing about them was the fact that earthquake come out of nowhere. No one got hurt and it didn't cause any damage.
So it was a pretty normal week, other than the earthquake, we haven't been able to meet with any of our investigators, but we did find a couple potentials. The first one stopped us, she Egyptian I think, she asked for an Book of Mormon so we gave were her one then she asked for one in Arabic, so we are working one that. The other one will be interesting, he believes that all religion is corrupt, and that the only thing we need to worry about is accepting Jesus Christ, but we gave him our number so we will see what happens.
They got ride of the cars to improve our finding efforts, ride now our mission is a pilot test mission for this and because Elder Perry told President Becerra. The idea is so that missionaries can be seen more it's kind of hard to see missionaries as they zip by in their cars. So public transportation, bikes and walking. So far it seems to be working.
If you really want to send me my sheets you can, and surprisingly I might need a sweater, the evenings have been starting to get cooler, but I might not need them for a couple weeks, because there is a possibility that it will warm up again because it is Southern California.
I did get your package, I liked it I really like the tie. The tag gave me a kick. Designed in Italy, made in China, Still creating jobs in the USA.  Thanks
