|My third time to the Buddhist Temple. I always love it.|
Since Elder A** and I are losing investigators every week, we are still hitting the contacting and knocking pretty seriously. We found 5 weak investigators from our efforts and have some lessons lined up for this evening and tomorrow so hopefully we can help them all to realize that this is something they have been searching for. One of the tools that has helped us a lot is, Gracias a que El Vive (or He Lives) which is the new church Easter video which is helping us to remember that Christ lives and guides us in these days just like the days of old. The two minute video is really good and has been a great source for contacting out here so I would highly recommend everyone who is reading this to check it out and share it with your friends! The church keeps coming out with these bomb ideas and short video clips which really do help out a ton! As of right now we have S**, C**, and A** are moving forward toward their baptismal dates in April, so please keep them in your prayers as they op through life's battles and challenges of trying to change and accept the gospel.
|Feels good to take a break at a service project.|
Now to the service part of the email :) Being back here in the Whittier area is good because there are many different ways to find and offer service here! From the food shelter where we have been working every Tuesday to a company called Helping Hands for which we did yard work for this past Saturday. We helped a couple older ladies (2 different houses) with their yard work in the front and back of their homes. The work was mainly trimming bushes and trees and weeding so it was all work I am very familiar with, haha (thanks to Dad and Grandpa D) haha. I was the bush trimmer and cutter which was pretty fun since the lady said she wanted her trees to be cut into the shape of "eggs"??? Why? I have no idea, maybe for Easter? Who knows, but we did our best to make eggs out of her bushes and trees, haha.
