Last Week

Last week there was someone at our church and we found out he was not a member. We sat with him during sacrament but did not talk to him much. Then this week we talked to him some more and found out that he is not a member. He wanted to learn more because his dad is a member but not active so one day he just decided to come to church.
The cool part is that we will be teaching him tomorrow at the VC.

On p-day we usually have an activity (lately we’ve tried to go on hikes) and then go shopping and do laundry. After that we go out and do service work. So that is our p-day.

Missionary Life is Good

Hello how is missionary life these days? Was this an eventful week?

Hi missionary life is going good it seems like its going fast. The last few weeks have seemed like they have been going slow with the work.
we did service today in the temple and we were up in the assembly hall moving chairs. We had with us the ZL's and the AP's so that was fun. The assembly hall is BIG and cool (the assembly hall in the Los Angeles Temple is the size of a football field)

Did you receive your package with all the misc items?

Yes I did receive the package thanks.

What do you think of missionary life?

I like the life. Its good.

Do you feel your testimony is growing?


Have you been on splits lately, have you had any more good Mexican food?


When do you get your driving privileges?

I have them now, I have had them for a few weeks now.

How is the bike?

Good, I haven’t ridden it much but that one time.

How is the UCLA ward, do you attend Sacrament meeting there as well as the Pacific Palisades ward?

We try to go to both wards. The UCLA ward is ok. Slow but ok.

Do you have transfers coming up next week?

Nope. About transfers I have heard that I will be going the Watts area and that there are a lot of drive-by shootings. That will be different so we will see.
Just kidding, I really don’t know what is up yet with transfers.

General Conference

This last week was I think really slow, so no really good investigators stories.
General Conference was good. We went to the stake center on 3400 Sawtelle blvd. Some talks I liked were Elder Bednar’s talk on the Holy Ghost, of course. Elder Uchtdorf was great. Saturday morning was powerful for me. But for the most part it was all good. It was great the way President Monson announced 5 more temples right at the beginning. You know he is a true prophet of God. I too, liked president Monson’s talk on missionary work.
I missed watching conference in HD at the house or even in 16:9.
That is good to hear that Leah had a chance to go to the Afternoon session of conference. I’m glad she took good notes. I need to work on my note taking skills.
After priesthood the ward went out to eat and we went out with them and went to a Japanese place. It was a bit different but it was good. I had rice and egg and chicken, so yup. Hope all is going well.
It was raining this week on P-day so we didn’t go on a hike, but I love the area we are serving in.
