|Temple P-Day at Newport Beach Temple|
|Elder J and I|
First experience: On Saturday night Elder J** and I had just finished a lesson with L** when we received a text from the Sisters saying they had received a call from a woman in the hospital and she needed a blessing ASAP. They asked if we could go do this for her. It was 7:45 pm and we were a little ways from the hospital and visiting hours closed at 8 pm. We had a dilemma here. Do we go all the way to the hospital or go in the morning? We ended up going. Upon arrival, we got to the front desk and the guy there said there was no one in the hospital by the name we gave him. Then a woman came down and was so happy to see us. She was, "Elders!" “I can’t believe you actually came! I was praying that you would come here tonight to visit my friend who is struggling at the moment." This woman was from Anaheim and asked us to come upstairs. We ended up talking with this woman who is in the mental ward because of the recent death of her 21 year old son. She has no desire to keep living and says her life is worthless. We sat there and talked to her for a little while and gave her a blessing to help her situation. It was an amazing experience and I am so glad that God trusted us to be where we were able to answer his message and help someone in need.

Everything else is going good though. The area is a great place to be even though the work is hard. I love it here and the members are awesome! We had a pancake study session on Saturday morning at the Seapoint Ward mission leader’s house. It was awesome! He made us chocolate chip pancakes which are my favorite, and we had a joint study group with the other elders. We were able to study together and share insights with a super bomb family. They speak Spanish in their home and English outside of their home because the wife is from Spain and Brother S** served his mission there. All his little girls are completely fluent in Spanish which I thought was super cool!
I hope you all have a great week this week and keep working hard! Good luck finalizing the move into the new home and I’ll keep you all in my prayers! Gracias por todo!!
Love Elder Woffinden
