just a bent rim

Last week was a good week. The weather here can't decided if it wants to be hot or cold. I have also reached the point the mission seems to go faster as time goes on.

We are still meeting with Maria, she is making slow progress, but is still willing to meet with us, it just that here schedule is busy, and it is hard for her to find time to meet with us. So right now we are waiting for her to give us a call, or we might try by and see if she is home.

Pam missed an appointment but we tried by the next day and she was home. She seems receptive of what we teach she has prayed about it and says she hasn't received and answer, but she believes what we say and it makes sense to her.

Other than that we went by some less active members in the ward trying to see if we can help them feel the Spirit again and reactivate them those lessons went well. We are also working with members to help them with there missionary work.

So something  exciting thing that happened this week was on Tuesday a car that was coming out of a parking lot hit me. He wasn't going very fast so I wasn't hurt it bent my bike rim though. He just didn't see me but is saw him and knew it was unavoidable I pretty sure that God protect me. So other than that nothing else exciting happened.

Thanks for the love and support.

Jake "super" long ;) letter (Just joking)

It has been a slow week.
We started teaching Pam she seemed receptive to our message.  Maria missed here appointment that we had so we will try by again this week.  We don't really have any thing that happened. This week we have a few people we are going to try by and hopefully we will start teaching. Our area is kind of slow right now so are plan is to do a lot of finding.  

Thanks for the love and support.

Well last week was an interesting week. 

Henry missed our appointment, when I called we said that we wasn't interested in meeting with us because he didn't want to get to know new missionaries, then after that he dropped of the radar. He wouldn't return phone calls, nod he wasn't ever home. So we decided to drop him again.  So Jessica was also dropped, because we were meeting with them together.

We started teaching Maria, she met with missionaries before nod let come over and teach her again. So we taught her the Restoration, and she accepted it and even prayed about it. We are planning on see her again the Saturday.

We had the oppertunity to do some service last week. There has a fire near Glendora, so when it rained t washed a bunch of mud down so we helped some clear the mud near his house so the machines could do it. It was great because he wasn't a member, but members from that ward a lots of missionaries help clear, he appreciated it. It was great having an oppertunity t do service, chants things up a bit.

It was a long week we didn't have much going on this week, it was still a good week, we still got stuff done. I am still adjusting to using the iPads, using the gospel library app has helped studies, it we haven't really used in teaching other than showing Mormon messages or something. 

Thanks for the love and support.

Well last week was a good week. It ended with a good rain storm.

First of all transfers were today. I am still in the Temple City Ward. Elder Hendricks is my new companion he is from a small town near Seattle Washington. They are also adding another set of Elders in the ward. For a total of six missionaries. Two set of elders and a set of sister missionaries.

So Henry gave us a call and said that he would like to start meeting with us again. He was still reading the Book of Mormon and praying during the two months of no communication. He also has a desire to get baptized where before it was just a bible study for him. We also started to teach his girlfriend who also accepted baptism.  

Henry is the only person we taught all week. We have a few potential investigators that we are going to be meeting with this week.  So it was a slower week. The rain was really good but California still needs a lot more. 

Thanks for the love and support
