It has been another productive week but very wet! It rained on and off this past weekend. So it was great to be on the bike. California really needed some help though to break through this drought. Everyone is very grateful. We found some great success come from the English class and church tours this week. We were able to find Juan and Lorena who are a very humble couple with a desire to learn. We gave them a church tour as well ans they found the church to be very nice. They didn't come this Sunday, but they hope to continue coming to the classes, so we hope to see them this Wednesday. If only every place in the world had the desire to learn a new language, it would be a very good finding tool for every mission to use. As for our investigators:
Julio and Niria: We gave Niria a blessing in preparation for a surgery that she was going to have. However, right after the blessing she got news that her son was in the hospital in critical condition. She decided to postpone the surgery in case something happened to her son. Fortunately, he is doing better and all is well. They are really excited recently because we got to help them put on the Gospel Library on the iPhone so they can read the Book of Mormon on the go. We are really excited for them! We just pray that Julio can work out his divorce so they can progress more in the gospel. They both love the Church!
Raymundo: We taught him the Restoration and the Plan of Salvation to him this week. He committed to baptism, however he needs to work on some commandments and also find time to come to church. He has truly shown his desire to be repentant, though, as he says, he truly wants to follow Christ!
Juan: We have a hard time getting to meet with him, so we hope this Wednesday we get to see him and teach him.
The mission has been a great experience to come back and see the changes in me and in the mission.
