28 May 2012

Hey family,

How’s it going?  I’m doing pretty good, Oxnard has perfect weather!!!!!! It’s always like 78 degrees, a little different than Utah huh? ha ha  I’m not looking forward to getting transferred to Bakersfield ( if I get transferred there) its already like 100 degrees and dusty there. 

Well this week was a really good week.  We had a lot of great success and we were able to teach a lot of people.  Things are going really well still, not gonna lie it’s kinda nice.  It’s a lot of hard work but its ok.  People are always willing to listen to us but most of the time they don’t really want to act on the things they learn.  But at least we are getting the message out right???  A lot of tracting, ALOT OF TRACTING!!  I really do like tracting though, there is nothing better than bugging people while they are watching the NBA playoffs, most of the time they will chose Christ over the playoffs but every once and a while they will pick the game..... sad right? But we are still knocking playoffs or not. 

We are still working with Ron and Robert, they are doing pretty well but they are still drinking a lot, but we committed them to stop drinking as much as they were, so we will see how that goes. Oh and we set Robert with a date for July 7th.  He has neuropathy and is scared to get into the water but we will help him get over that fear with faith in Christ.

We picked up a former investigator named Christian who at once had a date, the date is June 23rd.  He is really excited and now he really is ready for the covenant of baptism.  He is 18 and is about to graduate from high school.  It was a very powerful lesson, the spirit was really there to testify to him about the truth and how he really needs to follow Jesus Christ.  I’m really excited about it!!!

We found this new guy named Joseph and we taught him the restoration.  During the lesson he said that he has been talking with his friend about how there were too many churches and too much confusion in this world now about religion.  He told us to come back Sunday and teach him and his family about the restoration.  So we will see how that goes.

I’m doing great here in CALIFORNIA!!!
Love you so much and miss you tons!
