|Love Huntington Beach!|
Hola mi familia!! How’s everyone doing this fine day?? Thanks again for the emails. I love receiving them. From what everyone talked about it sounds like I missed a very stressful moving weekend getting all settled into the new house! I will say I am glad to not be home for that so sorry. Ha-ha. But I’m glad to hear that all is going well and everyone is healthy and happy.
As for me, I am doing good! I had a super hard week, but that’s normal to have at times. It’s not like I haven’t had one before, I just have to keep going like all the rest. We have been having to drop more investigators and also had a couple drop us which we thought had real potential. We are pretty much left with nothing again and back to square one. A** is our bread and butter and is amazing! The most prepared 9 year old girl and will be baptized soon! We are planning with her mom for the middle of September since her husband who is anti baptism is starting to loosen up more and more so keep her in your prayers please.

So that was a good experience that happened to me! We had a lot of hard ones by getting dropped by more investigators. One of which was M**. We were making good progress with her, but then the second lesson she just says, “Hey guys, look I’m not gonna change and I just wanted to let you know” We asked her what was going on and so she gave us this huge 10 minute lecture/excuses and then told is we could continue to talk to her?? I asked her if she had any intentions on ever taking our message to heart?? She said, “No” so we said alright. We said goodbye and wished her luck with everything. We are trying to find people to teach this week. Our potentials and formers are exhausted in our area book so it looks like we will just be finding by knocking or doing other methods. There is one method that worked for a good friend of mine. He and his companion called on a ‘lost cat’ sign and when the woman answered and asked if they had her cat, they said, “No... But we do have a message for you about Jesus Christ and how he loves us and wants us to be happy. She ended up having them come by. Ha-ha We are going to have to try that.

Church was good yesterday, Elder J** gave a really good talk on how companionship study affects us as missionaries and how we can do "comp study" as a family to strengthen the family. Of course I was translating the talk into Spanish.
But things will be better this week. I hope to keep changing and learn how to be a better missionary/man. I hope all is well for everyone who reads this. I love you all!! Have a great week!!
