Week #51

This week has been super good! We don't really know what's going on since we both got moved to a new area we are just trying to get a hold of this area! 

Tuesday we just moved in pretty much all day so we set up shop in the apartment good stuff

Wednesday we had a new leadership training. It was good and it was definitely something I needed. Some mornings we just get up and go and then don't do any studies. They told us that we need to be doing it everyday. We need to fill up our cup so we can pour it out onto others! So we have been making that a focus for this transfer. After we had a ZLC meeting with the sister training leaders and district leaders to discuss what we want to do for the zone this transfer. 

Thursday we got to know the entire zone we played some games and set some goals. Adware we had district meeting. After we finally go to go work in our area got to meet some less active sand recent converts which was awesome!

Friday got up and we and did weekly planning. For most of the day. 

Saturday we have an investigator Enrique who was sent to us by some other elders sent us a referral with a baptismal date. He lives pretty much DTLA so we ended up paying for a stupid meter so we only had an hour to meet with him! We got into the apartment and this place is huge and we got lost for like 45 mins. Finally we find his place and we talk to him for like 10 mins and tell him we need to go.... 

Sunday comes and our boi Enrique is there looking sharp in his suit at church. He could stay for the third hour but he said I want to meet at 2:30. So we get done with church and wait till 2:30. We teach him and he pretty much said I want to get baptized now. So we told him there are some things we need to teach and stuff so we taught him the word of wisdom and he said he has already been living it. So boom perfect. Then we pull up our calendars and tell him to pick a date. We said the 24 of September to give him some time. He said the 17th so guess what we are having a baptism next week! He is totally down to meet with us every single day and to know and live all the commandments! We are meeting with him on Tuesday! Keep Enrique in your prayers! We know Satan finna come at him strong this week! 

That was my week! The longer I am out here the more truths I find out about the church and God and Jesus Christ! I love it with all of my corazón! This is the best! 

Have a good week! Love you all! 

  1. Us posting up in our new apartamento

Week #50

This week was a week from hell.  Outing bad happened it was just about a million and 6 degrees everyday so that made the work a lot harder.. this week was super great!!  
A lot actually happened!
Monday we chilled with the legendary Elder Baldwin for his last full p day in the mission, he has a recent convert that lives in the chase tower in DTLA so we went to his sky deck and chilled there for most of p day. Ate food. Elder Baldwin made me pee my pants. It was great. 

Tuesday we had MLC again it was two extra hours long the reason for that is because we are getting Facebook in the mission so we can do missionary work through Facebook!! I am super excited to use this and to help people all over the world and even at home increase their faith in Jesus Christ! I know there are some missionaries from the mission on this DONT DOWNLOAD FACEBOOK OR YOU WILL GET SNIPED BY ELDER ELDREDGE AND I. Late that night we were down working by the bottom of our area until about 8 when we just decided to go back up and call referrals for the remainder of the night. As we were driving up Crenshaw and thought came to me. Monique Bland. So I cut over 3 lanes and we went and found a super prepared lady that had been turned over to the lord but she wants all of this so bad!! Her little sister is a convert of about 4 years and she has seen what the gospel has done to her so she wants it!! Grateful for that promoting to go visit her and I am grateful I actually listened and acted!

Wednesday was super cool we started at the family history library helping a lady who wants to get into it! We were there helping her had time to go have an hour meeting and she was still down there grinding away on her family tree. After I think like 3 hours we took her up to the VC and showed her around and she wanted to learn more!  We also went to our less active ladies house with the two daughters and just hung with them they are all super cool doing great and getting ready to keep making small steps. That night we were working and we stopped and talked to these people for like 45 mins just about everything, they knew us and were literally at temple square like last week. Long story short we offered them service and then the dude shoved 20 bucks into our shirt pockets because he knew wouldn't take money unless it was forced upon us... then we walked down the steel to the intersection and watched a guy do donuts in there for like 5 mins. 

Thursday we had a ton of lesson I think like 5 don't really remember what we taught but we taught some solid people and some people that just want to know and learn more which isn't all that bad. We also met with Monique again and just got to know her a little more. She is awesome! We also had our last district meeting:( this was my fav district out of my mission they were all so much fun and we had a great time together. After we through a root beer float party for the zone for their hard work for the month of August! That 40 buck the guy gave to us the night before yeah that where it went lol. It was super fun and they will all be missed. 

Friday night happened just went out and cut some meat while we were sweating off pounds. 

Saturday same thing. But we got a referral that was a member that wants to come back to church!! So we went and visited her and she was super cool!! And she came to church the next day 

Sunday nothing happened besides transfer calls so we made those and guess. What?!? Your boys are staying together BUT we are moving to LA third ward!! We are both going back to Spanish. It's rare that Zone leaders white wash an area but hey let's hit it and let's start butchin!
