New Transfer February 22,2016

Man this week flew by. Week one of a new transfer always does. So these next few transfers are going to be a little weird. This transfer is a 7 week transfer, the next is a 6 week, then a 5 week, and then my last one is a 7 week. They are all jumbled up because they had to add on an extra week because they changed English missionaries to 3 weeks MTC time. 

But for this transfer (week) so far it has been pretty good. I cant express over email how fun it is to cover two wards. One of which being the YSA ward. We get to see so much success in both wards. Well talk about the family ward first. 

We are teaching a few people right now. We met someone this week whose name is Jackie Robinson. I wish it was the real guy but ill settle for what we got. The family is pretty prepared and open for change. We hope that as we follow up this next week they will be able to come to church. We had to move our investigators date back again because we couldn't teach him everything in time. Then for the next two weeks he is out of town so we are moving it to the 19th of March.

YSA- Our two investigators that just recently got baptized are getting the Aaronic priesthood this next week. This is the first time I have been able to stay in an area long enough to witness our investigators get the priesthood. So this is pretty exciting. Our one investigator is still good for the 5th. He has such good fellow shipping. He comes to all of the activities. He is super cool. 

This week we went and did service at this place called the painted turtle. Its this camp place where kids in California and out of state come to have a week or two of fun. They have so many things to do. For the service we went and made beds in all the cabins they stay in. It was actually a ton of fun. After we asked what other cool things they had there. They have the original Lakers basketball practice court. So we got to take some sweet pictures with that. ( i can officially say i made a 3 pointer on the Lakers basketball court )

Life as a missionary is so great. I like the saying "another day in paradise" because it so true. We are living in such a way where its impossible to not find joy in this work. 

I hope you all have a great week.
