January 6, 2014

Dear Family and Friends,

It's been kind of a long week, my companion and I have been sick
since about the middle of the week and we're still both under the
weather. A lot of long and sleepless nights. Our entire district has
been coming down with it and it seems to be going around with everyone
we talk with. My companion and I have tried to make the most of it
and still do what we can.

So at the beginning of the week was when we were able to do most of our
work and we were actually really successful. We picked up two
investigators this past week. The first one is named Kayla. We went
and talked to her at a park and she seemed really interested and
invited us to come by her house. She told us her mom used to
investigate our church and she would try to get her and her mom to
come to our church. The second investigator we picked up this week is
named David and he's from Liberia. I was able to really connect with
him by talking about college football and than turn to a gospel
conversation.  Hopefully we find success as we meet with them again
this week.

We had 3 investigators come to church on Sunday.The three being Fred,
Omar, and Elio. Fred is really coming along. That was the first time
he came to church. Our lessons always go great with him. We taught hin
the plan of salvation and he said he felt like he already knew
everything we taught him. It just clicked and made sense to him. He
committed to be baptized so we're going to try and set a date with him
this week.

All is well here in California. Its weird to think we're already in
week 5 of this transfer. The transfer has been flying by. Well I love
and miss you guys. You're always in my prayers. Have a great week!
