Bueno, It's been a good week, it was a little sad leaving Napa, especially leaving Elder Merrell and Elder Overson (one of the other Elders in our apt.), I really came to be good friends with them (I didn't mention Elder Brazelton because he left for home on Mon. but I was good friends with him too). That being said I've really enjoyed my time here in Fairfield so far! Before I go any farther and forget, I'm going to send the address to my aptartment:
1242 Dana Dr. Apt. H
Fairfield, CA 94533
Anyways, It's been good here. Elder Teisina is from Utah, but his heritage is Tongan and he's the first companion that I've had so far that's taller than me! Not by much, but it's a little strange... it's good though. He's also a pretty quiet, soft-spoken guy but he's a very hard-working companion. It'll be a great transfer! He and Elder Rawson (anybody recognize that name...? think back to my first week in the field...) had a lot of success and saw lots of miracles last transfer and have a number of really interested investigators that seem to be progressing well. I'm excited to be given the opportunity to pick this area up and work with Elder Teisina.
Some of the investigators that we've taught since I've been here are Ortega and his wife Ana, who we're going to invite to be baptized the 17th of May, and now that their married they shouldn't have any hang-ups. Then we have Ana's family that basically live next door to them and there's like 5 of them that are being taught right now, that makes it hard sometimes for being focused in lessons, but their an awesome family that have been reading the pamphlets we've left for them to read! Dulce is a newer investigator who's been taught twice now I think, and she was going to come to church, but one of her friends passed away and so she called us to tell us she wouldn't be able to make it and she was crying on the phone, we have been keeping her and her friend's family in our prayers and I feel like she really has true desires if she called us to tell us that she couldn't come. And yesterday we had a miracle! We went to see a less-active and we went in and there was a guy, named Jose there. We started talking with him and it turns out he was a referral from the English Elders that we'd tried calling and setting up an appointment, but we couldn't because he was in the Hospital at the time. But we were able to pick him up as an investigator and he's really interested! So we've been having a great time here!
Anyways, I've got to go, times up, but I love y'all and I hope y'all had a wonderful Easter weekend and have a great week this week!
PS. While I'm thinking about Easter, if y'all didn't get to see it, go watch the Because of Him video the Church put out! It's one of my favorite videos so far! Go to easter.mormon.org to find it!
