Well been a slow week. It was still a good week though.
Reuben is doing good. We found out that he doesn't live in our area. We would meet him at his office, and we were told that he lived above it. Turns out he lives in Montebello, so we passed him on to the missionaries there. He was alright with that. Eric dropped us, we aren't sure why, he texted us and told us he didn't want to meet any more and wouldn't tell us why.
We have started teaching Debbie and her daughter Crystal, we taught them the Restoration. They seem a little flaky though. We had set up a return appointment, and they weren't home. when we saw them again they said to come back later.
So that's my week. Nothing too exciting happened this week. Thanks for the love and support.

short; but at least he email:)

So yesterday because it was a holiday the library we found was closed. So that is why we are emailing today.
I didn't get transferred. I am still in the Temple City Ward 
We have not been able to contact Henry so we decided to drop him, or stop teaching him. Ruben is doing good, he is trying to live the Word of Wisdom. He is always happy to see us even when we stop by unexpectedly. We were able to pick up a new investigator last week. His name is Eric. He is into art. We have taught him about the Restoration and about the Book of Mormon. He really like everything we have taught him.  Other than that it has been a pretty slow week. Nothing to exciting happened. Thanks for the love and support.

Well last week was a slow but good week. 

We haven't been able to get in contact with Henry this week, so we don't know what is going on with him. This is the second time that he has done this, where we have lost contact with him. So we are going to keep trying by, and calling him, and see what is going on with him.

Ruben didn't show up to church on Sunday, but other than that he is doing good. We taught him two lessons last week. He has also accepted baptism, Feb. 16. The only problem is that he found out recently he smokes, so we are going to work through that. I think he will be willing to follow the word of wisdom when we teach it to him this week.

On Thursday Brother Donaldson from the missionary department came down and talk with us about a lot of stuff. He taught us more effective and simpler way of teaching, and a more effective way to contact someone on the street. The missionary department have done studies and think that this will work better. Because in the past we have over explaining things and confusing investigators. So if he teach it simpler, they will understand it better. We will also be getting tablets soon between Feb 11-13. They will be used as a teaching tool, and to move the missionary work forward. We will also have access to Church websites and Facebook. So President Becerra has asked that defreind all family. I'm not sure why but it is what he has told us to do.

This is also the last week of the transfer. So I will find out what is happening on Saturday.

Well that's it for my week. Thanks for the love and support

we also found a place to e-mail on monday

making ptogress

Well last week was an interesting week, but it was still a good week.
We have been meeting with Ruben and he is progressing really well, he came to church on Sunday, he only stayed for Sacrament meeting, because he isn't a social person, but he wants to slowly work on going to all the Sunday meetings. He told us that he had been outside the church deciding if he should come in, he was kind of at war with himself. He decided to come in after he had been waiting for an hour. He has also accepted to get baptized. Which is great because he started out agnostic.  It was been really cool to see Ruben change, at first he would seem depressed when we came over, but now he is excited to see us and wants to learn more.
Henry is slowly progressing, he still hasn't made it to church. He said he was going to come than he didn't because some drama happened, but he called us and wanted us to come over. He felt bad for not coming to church, and says he is going to do better and come this Sunday. We are planning on inviting him to be baptized this Sunday. I think it was a humbling experience for Henry, because he would talk like he was perfect. After what happened he realized that he wasn't there was still a hint of arrogance, but he knows that he needs to do better.
Nothing to exciting happened this week. It was kind of a slower week.
Thanks for the love and support.
