This has been a kind of hard week, but it's been super good as well.
It was hard because as a zone we started the "mission possible" where
everyday for a week every companionship contacts 20 people. It just
was hard to do here in this area where there's not really a central
place people walk around in, there's not a lot of apartments to tract,
lots of houses have gates around them and it gets dark here at about
6:30. But we persevered and we did it, everyday!
We also taught Yessica this week!! Unfortunately her sister Paulina
wasn't there, but her friend Angelina was! We taught them the whole
Restoration and at the end invited them to baptism, and they both said
that if they came to know that it's true they'd be baptized! They both
seemed to understand really well and be really interested, so we're
super excited. We have a lesson set with them for tonight, but
unfortunately I'll be in Kelseyville on exchanges as well as Elder
Foster with one of the Zone Leaders. So it'll be Elder Beeston's first
time leading the area being in charge of where to go, who to visit,
and what to do. So it'll be good for him, but he might have a bit of a
hard time. He'll learn from it though, which is the point.
Also this week we taught the RIvera family, the Mendoza family, and
Rafael for less-actives. They are all doing alright, although none of
them were able to come to church this Sunday. But we'll keep working
with them and we hopefully will help them be able to come next Sunday.
We also picked up a new investigator, Ray this week. He's a 20
something year-old kid who is living by himself and working and he's
met with missionaries before. It seems like he's been having a hard
time, but we hope to help him out with the Gospel.
Hope y'all have a wonderful week! Love y'all!
