Transfer to Hacienda Heights/El Monte

Last week went a little faster and it also cooled down.  I have also been transferred to Hacienda Heights Second ward.  It covers part of El Monte all of south El Monte and of Hacienda Heights.  I am with Elder Christensen working in El Monte and south El Monte while another set of Elders cover Hacienda Heights.  It’s kind of funny because Elder Christensen and I were in the MTC together.

All the lessons we had scheduled fell through, again.  So we spent most of the time trying to find more people to teach.  Saturday we set up a free lemonade and cookie stand in a park with the missionaries in the ward as well as some ward members.  That went really well we got some contact information.  It also let people know that we aren’t’ that weird.  I was also asked to give a talk last Sunday.  So that was my last week in Temple City.

Thanks for the love and support

not much luck

It was a rough week for us. It was also very hot.

We meet with Pam and she is doing well. She told us that she didn't think she was going to get baptized anytime soon so she didn't want to waste our time by having us come over, but she said she would still read the Book of Mormon. It was funny because we had decided that he would drop her because we both felt like it would be good for her. We haven't meet with the Delgados in a awhile because they keep missing the appointments we set up. 

We had zone conference on Friday. That was good we learned how to plan better and a few other things. Other than that it was a long and slow week.

Thanks for the love and support

Last week was a pretty good week.

We taught Pam again she is doing good. We taught her about the Word of
Wisdom and committed her to live it.  We are planning on meeting with
her this Thursday again. The Delgados are still hard to meet with but
we set something up for Wednesday.

We taught someone from Saudi Arabia he is Muslim. He only wanted to
meet with us because he wanted to learn more about Christianity. So we
taught him about the Restoration. He didn't want to learn more, and he
didn't want to pray and ask if it was true. So that was the end of

We also got to help some students with a homework assignment for their
world religions class. They had to do an assignment on church and they
chose Mormonism. So we meet with them and it was a question and answer
type thing. He also shared with them the Message of the Restoration.

That was my week not much else happened. Thanks for the love and support.

It is getting hot!

Kind of a slow and really hot week.  It should be cooling down this week so that will be nice.

Pam is doing well she doesn’t know it is true or not.  So it is going slow with her.  Judy and Manuel Delgado schedule got a lot busier so it is going to be a lot harder to meet with them.  We did have an appointment with them Sunday, but that one fell through.  So that is about all that happened this week. 

Next week we are hoping to contact and start teaching some referrals.

Thanks for the love and support.

I talked with President Becerra the other day.  He sends his love out to Nicole and the rest of the family.  He also is prayer for her.

We are planning on Skyping around 4 here so it will be about 5 in Utah
