This week was a straight blur. Went by so fast and I had to get up at like 5:45 everyday this week. Cause we had to go to Santa Monica a bunch this week so we spent a lot of time in the car.
Last Monday we went to the science center at USC with some sisters. It was pretty fun then later after P day we went and had a lesson the Martinez family and we taught the plan of salvation. They understood it really well and they loved it! They had a bunch of questions and they truly wanted to understand it. It was very draining but I feel like that’s how lessons should be!
Tuesday we got up and had to go to Santa Monica so Elder Kane could go to the physical therapist then we had to go tot he mission office for him to do stuff on a computer then we went to the church building by USC for a song practice that Elder Kane was singing in. We can back had dinner then went home.
Wednesday we got up at like 5:30 to leave by 6:30 for zone conference in Santa Monica. It took us like an hour and a half to get there... zone conference was really good! We had trainings and went through the entire conversion process for our investigators. Pi really liked it. After we had a meeting with President Haynie for Elder kane. Then it took us 2 hours to get home.. had dinner, went and worked for a little and that was our day!
Thursday got up at 5:30 and left at like 6:25 for temple service. Got there around 8.. Elder kane and I wiped down a lot of wood in a bunch of different rooms in the temple. We did that Ate lunch then came home and worked until the Martinez family. We taught the restoration! It was a little harder for them but they understood well that if they want to know it’s true they need to pray and seek the answer. They did say tho if they don’t feel anything then it isn’t for them... we have been praying like crazy for them this week.
Friday we had a ZLC and then district meeting. After we worked the rest of the day till dinner set up a couple of return appointments then exchanged with the HP elders
Saturday I was with Elder Harrison and Creighton. We had breakfast with their neighbor then went to downtown to meet up with Elder Harrisons older brother and non member girlfriend and had lunch with them at a super fancy Mexican restaurant. (TBH still rather eat LA Playita) but then went and had a lesson with them. Came back down to HP and worked for a minute then their ward was having a party so we had dinner there! Exchanged back and had the best nights rest.
Sunday we got up went to church then had stake reports with the Haynies and stake presidency. Then we had a turn over lesson to the YSA sisters, then had another lesson with our super cool referral who we just met and got to know him. He said the closing prayer and asked if this is the path that he should take. After we finished the night at brother Garcia’s house with dinner and chisme.
Still loving it out here! This is the greatest mission in the world. Just ask Elder Retamlaes.
Love you all! Have a great Week!
