Dear Family and Friends,

Its been a good week here in Citrus Heights. I'll start by telling you
a pretty crazy thing that happened. . Earlier this week we went by to
go visit this less active family named the Lolars. They are a super cool
family and we're working on reactivating them. We were sitting down
having a discussion with them when all of a sudden 7 or 8 police
officers came barging in the house. They were asking for a guy named
Mark. My companions first name is Mark so he started freakin out
inside his head wondering why in the world would the cops be looking
for him. It was pretty funny. But it turned out they were looking for
the person we were visitings brother. The cops asked us immediately to
leave while they arrested him. So we walked away with Billy and
Malichi(the guy we were visiting and his son) and he told us he felt
like me and Elder Johnson were like guardian angels to him that
protected him and that it was a sign from God that he needed to come
back to church. It was a pretty cool experience. We even worked with
ward members to get the entire family church clothes and they've
committed to come back to church. So the whole thing was pretty cool.
They've even asked for rides so they can come to church the following

We're working with the Hernandez family still. Omar is now the only
one in the family that isn't baptized and we had a great lesson with
him before the Super Bowl.  The rest of the family is working on going
through the temple and they asked if we would go with them in a couple
of weeks so that should be pretty cool to go through the temple with a
recent convert family that we've been working with a lot. We're
working a lot with a part member family named the Hurns. We're
teaching the 9 year old daughter and the father seems to be supporting
her a lot more and joining in the lessons. Which is a big improvement.
So we're hoping to set a baptism date this week with her.

Everything is well here. Second week training and my companion is
doing awesome. He's a hard worker and likes to get things done which
is good. We've been getting into racketball here. There's some elders
who have a racquetball court in there apartment complex so thats been
pretty fun. Until next week! Love you guys!
